  --  Billed as a "National Watch Game" and ranked 25th in the nation by Inside Lacrosse, the Dragons of Duxbury (Mass) beat Irondequoit for the second time in two years. The game was not quite as close as last year's game held at Harvard University, which Duxbury won 5-4 on an end of the game Duxbury at Irondequoitgoal by Paul Hellar. Hellar was back again this year, before heading off to Fairfield next fall, and scored two goals in the 10-7 win.

The first quarter saw only one score, an unassisted goal by Chris Williams in Duxbury's first possession as he moved the ball down field from a clear and took the ball straight to goalie Eric Fisher. The first quarter ended with the Dragons up 1-0. The Duxbury defense made a statement early in the game, promising to play a high-pressured stick-on-stick play against the game and to hustle for every ground ball.

The Eagles, who are used to a little less pressure on their offensive players, adapted in the second quarter after Duxbury increased their lead to 3-0 on goals by Bryan Berry and Hellar. Berry scored at 10:07 on a reverse dodge from the top of the box and Hellar scored on a drive from the back right, close to the crease, after beating his defenseman for a one-on-one with Fisher.

Junior attackman Jake Schmidt started the scoring for the Eagles at 5:47 on a pass from behind the net by senior Max Kostyk. Schmidt, who ended the game with 2g-1a, received the ball at the GLE. He took a couple of steps and threw the ball in the far side of Henry Buonagurio, in the net for Duxbury. Three minutes later, Sam Sweet came from behind the net in man up to sneak the ball into the inside corner and gave the Dragons a 4-1 lead. Irondequoit returned, however with two goals before the half. Schmidt started a bull dodge that ended up knocking his defenseman down. He then took a step back and threw a hard side arm shot into the net. With 0:16 left junior attackman Nick Doktor snuck one into the corner with the Eagles up two men and the half ended with Duxbury up 4-3.Duxbury at Irondequoit

The third quarter started out with a series of ties, starting with Max Kostyk's break-away to a one-on-one shot past Buonagurio. Two minutes later, the Dragons went back in the lead with a shot from the top right by Berry. The Eagles came right back thirty seconds later Schmidt set a textbook back pick just behind the goal. The pick freed up Doktor for a point-blank shot, tying the game at 5-5.

Duxbury then took firm control of the game, scoring the next four goals in a row. The first three were unassisted goals, starting with Kane Haffey scoring on a broken clear and Hellar scoring on another switchback for a far-side shot high on stick side. Long stick middie Reilly Naton scored soon after he received a ball during a ground ball scrum at midfield. He scored with his long stick on an outside overhand shot from top right. Haffey finished the quarter's scoring after another broken clear. Sweet received the ball from up field and after faking a one-on-one shot with Fisher, dished the ball cross-crease to Haffey for the finish. The quarter ended with the Dragons up 9-5.

After a long scoring draught, the result of continued pressure by the Dragon defense and a more conservative offense, Emmy Poccia took the ball from Doktor (behind the cage) and scored on a stick side high corner shot at 4:23. Berry scored his third and last goal of the game at 3:13 as he ran Duxbury at Irondequoitstraight in from the top of the box. Poccia ended the scoring with a backside pass from Schmidt with 1:47 remaining.

Both goalies made a number of spectacular, game-turning saves. Buonagurio, who will play at Drexel next fall, finished the game with ten saves (59%). Eric Fisher finished with fourteen saves (58%).

Although the very cold temperatures and gray skies made this a tough game to watch, the lacrosse lived up to its billing. The Dragon defense of Peter Willauer, Jay McDermott (Syracuse) and Matt O`Keefe (Johns Hopkins) were demonstrative and once the Eagles thought through their plan, they played well against them. There were some classic match ups and a few mismatches, but the two teams played good lacrosse. The winning difference came from dominating defensive play and the measured control of the ball when needed.

Duxbury (5-2) goes to Section II, to take on Niskayuna on Saturday. Irondequoit travels to Fairport on Tuesday.    return to top

  --  With Section Five schools on spring break this week, the Penn Yan Academy boys' lacrosse team packed its bags and headed down state to the United States Military Academy at West Point to play a game along the Hudson River with 2010 Section 1/Class A regional champions, the Lakeland-Panas Rebels.Penn Yan at Lakeland

Penn Yan used Sunday as a travel day, had a team dinner that evening and settled in at the Thayer Hotel for some rest. On Monday, following a team breakfast, the team ventured east across the Hudson to Cortlandt Manor, home of Walter Panas High School for a two hour practice session. Upon their return to the Academy, the team was welcomed to Blaik Field at Michie Stadium by Army head lacrosse coach Joe Alberici, a native of Auburn, NY. Coach Alberici spent the next 90 plus minutes with the Mustangs leading a tour through the Black Knights' training facilities culminating with some conversation of character and a walk through the Army Hall of Fame. Following a team dinner on the banks of the Hudson, the boys settled in their quarters for some down time.

Tuesday's sunrise brought cooler temperatures. After the boys packed up their gear, were treated to a home style breakfast, and then boarded the bus for the trek back across the Hudson and their match up with the undefeated Rebels. The game began with the Rebels controlling the opening face off and settling in their offensive end only to have the PY defense record their first take and push the ball up field. The Mustang offense had several looks at the cage in the first eight minutes with Rebel goalie Michael Zingaro saving a couple that were on goal.

Penn Yan continued its pressure and at the six minute mark of the firsPenn Yan at Lakelandt period Bradley Voigt set up fellow attackman Rion Davison on the crease and Penn Yan took a 1-0 lead. One minute later LP was flagged for a 30 second technical and PY's EMO unit capitalized when Dylan Yonts found Bradley Voigt sweeping from right to left in front of the goal. The Rebels gained possession on early face off wins, however, and they were able to tie the score at 2-2 with two minutes left in the opening quarter. The Mustangs struck again as Yonts buried his feed from Ryan Maciejewski and the period ended with the Mustangs on top 3-2.

Lakeland-Panas started the second quarter with ball as the Mustangs were flagged for a one minute illegal pocket penalty but were able to stave off the Rebel man up offense. Play continued between the boxes for several minutes with neither team threatening the other's goal. At the four minute mark, Penn Yan again went man down and this time the LP offense was able to take advantage and tie the score at 3-3. Anthony Luppino won the ensuing face off and the Mustangs, at the two minute mark, took the lead for good when Luppino passed to James Voigt out in front of the Rebel goal. Voigt was able to free his arms and get off a bounce shot that found the back of the net. The half ended with Penn Yan up by the score of 4-3.

The third quarter started with a Penn Yan win at the "X" and shortly thereafter Bradley Voigt netted his second goal of the game (22nd of year) with an assist from Yonts, extending their lead to 5-3. The Mustangs added another goal just two minutes later when Luppino dodged the right alley and fired a shot past Zingaro.

Penn Yan at Lakeland

The key factor in the third was the swarming Penn Yan defense that time and again frustrated Rebel All-American Conor Prunty and fellow attackman Robert Caffrey and caused a number of LP turnovers on hard slides. To add to the Rebel frustrations, freshman goalie Brandon Maciejewski turned away a number of close, hard shots which resulted in Penn Yan holding LP scoreless in the third.

Penn Yan added another goal at the 11:11 mark of the fourth when Rion Davison and Bradley Voigt hooked up for the second time pushing the Mustang lead to 7-3. Lakeland-Panas ended their scoring drought at the nine minute mark when Caffrey was finally able to beat Maciejewski off hip and LP climbed back to within three. Moments later Davison and Voigt connected for a third time. An accurate pass from Voigt behind the net found Davison's crosse for a quick stick goal. The officials hit the Mustangs with a slash at 1:18 and Caffrey converted for his third goal of the game. The final score was Penn Yan 8 - Lakeland Panas 5.

Mustang goalie Brandon Maciejewski played the entire 48 minutes between the pipes and had a stellar day in the net finishing with 12 saves/5 goals against (71%). Anthony Luppino took all of the draws form the "X" and finished 7/14 (50%). Defenseman Michael Thiesmeyer joined Luppino in recording 4 ground balls for the blue and orange.

The Mustangs (6-1) travel back to Section Five where they will get ready to play Canandaigua on Friday. The game, originally scheduled as a night game at the Academy had been rescheduled for 11:00 AM at Evans Field.    return to top
