Junior Varsity and Freshman Lacrosse Teams Pound Crusaders
The Junior Varsity lacrosse team defeated the Crusaders of Brother Martin on Sunday by a score of 6-4. Attackman Ryan McGinty and Midfielder Bennett Sherman were the leading scorers with two goals each. Midfielders Caleb Boesch and Baylor Schexnayder added one goal each and Midfielders Micah Theriot and Jonathan Miller added an assist each to help lead the Bears over the Crusaders. Sherman also posted 6 defensive plays to lead an outstanding defensive effort as the Bears were able to hold a potent Crusader offense to just 4 points. The coaches gave much of the credit to Sophomore Goalie Joseph Angelloz who registered 7 saves by stopping 64% of all shots that were able to make it through the Bears defense. A solid performance by the JV squad.
Earlier on Sunday the Freshman Juggernaut continued ití´s district domination with a 7-0 pounding of the Crusaderí´s Freshman team. The key to the Bearsí´ victory rested solidly on the best defensive outing of the year. Defensmen Joe Poret, Trey Kirkpatrick, Sam Hillburn, Gabe Scioneaux and long stick Midfielder Cody Abshire, captained by goalies Michael Ruiz and William Moore held the Crusaders to just 3 shots on goal. The Catholic High goalies recorded their first shut-out of the season. The midfield and transition game by the Bearsí´ midfielders were remarkably improved over earlier season games.
Midfielder Chris Ferachi scored 3 points on 2 goals and an assist to lead Catholic scorers. Andrew Perrodin scored 2 points on 2 goals from the midfield position along with Attackman Grant Langley, 2 goals, and Taylor Boyle, 1 goal and 1 assist. Freshman midfielder Randall Pizzolato rounded out the scoring with an assist to Ferachi. Coaches Jeff Perrone and Charlie Demas stated that this was clearly the best complete game to date by this young freshman team.
The varsity dropped ití´s game to the district runner-up Crusader squad by a score of 3-5. The Bearsí´ head coach Jeff Echols, while acknowledging a tough loss, praised the players in what was clearly their best played game of rebuilding season.
The Varsity & Junior Varsity squads look forward to Mandeville this Saturday on the Northshoreí´s Maritime Museum Field in Madisonville, while the Freshman look forward to a meeting with the Blue Jays of Jesuit on Sunday at home.
