JV Lacrosse Team Defeats St. Paul’s

In a full weekend of Lacrosse, the Catholic High Lacrosse Teams took to the field in 5 games this weekend. 

The Bears started the weekend with a two game sweep of the Lafayette Lions. 

In Saturdayí´s first game the Varsity posted a solid victory by outscoring the Lions 14 to 3.
#21 Senior Jake Guba lead all scorers with 6 goals for the Bears.  Senior captain Sean Averette added 2 more goals and Greg Normand, Hayden Case, Michael Beal, Tyler Hood, John Kellner, and John Portwood all added one goal apiece in an outstanding offensive performance by the Bears.
Senior captain Andrew Giorlando lead a solid defensive outing for Catholic by posting 7 solid defensive plays. Junior defenseman Cory Treloar added 6 defensive plays as the Bears shut down Lafayetteí´s leading scorers.

The second game of the day had the JV defeat the Lafayette JV squad by a score of 4-1.
John Kellner, Matthew Baggett, Micah Theriot, and George Roberts all posted a goal to insure a Bears victory.  John Kellner added an assist to the goal by Theriot to lead all scorers.  In an odd turn of events Kellner also lead the team in total defense with 9 key defensive plays.  The Bears goalie Joseph Angelloz had an incredible 89% save percentage by stopping 8 of the 9 shots on goal.

All three squads  then travelled to Covington on Sunday to face the Wolves of St. Paulí´s.  In a series of very physical games the JV was able to remain unbeaten by defeating the Wolvesí´ JV squad by a score of 8 to 6.  Sophomore attackman John Kellner, #18 lead all scorers with 3 goals and 2 assists.  Micah Theriot added 2 goals along with one goal each by Caleb Boesch, Baylor Schexnayder, Matthew Baggett to put the game out of reach for the wolves.

The Freshman squad lost their season opener against the Wolves.  Garrett Harveyí´s 3 goals and the one posted by Chris Facundus was not enough to get past the wolves.  The Varsity also lost their district opener against St. Paulí´s in a hard hitting game against a very aggressive opponent. Senior Midfielder Tyler Hood scored 3 goals on the day.  Michael Beal, and Senior captains Sean Averette, and George Troxell each added a goal but came up short losing to the Wolves 6 to 8.

Solid efforts on the defensive end by Troxell and Hood were not enough to hold off the wolves.

All three Lacrosse squads travel to New Orleans this weekend to face some of the best teams in a three state area as the join over 30 teams in this weekendí´s Sugar Bowl Tournament  at Metairieí´s Lafraniere Park.
