Players of the Week - Group 6

Section V Boys Lacrosse Coordinator Mike Simon in conjunction with the Canandaigua National Bank are, once again, sponsoring recognition of noteworthy performances throughout the season.

In our sixth group we have two seniors, and an eighth grader who have had noteworthy performances in the last week.

Offensive Player of the Week

Tano AuriusoJonah Jobson - Thomas Attack/Midfield

Jonah Jobson is an eighth grader who has a record of 20g-8a in his first year on the Varsity. Perhaps them most memorable to date is his game-winning, overtime goal when the Titans beat Rush-Henrietta last week. With less than two minutes left in the half, Jonah scored two goals in less than a minute to send the Titans into the break, down 6-7. His final goal, at 2:44 left in overtime came from a feed from Brandon Trottier.

Head Coach Rob Ruller says, "Jonah is a soft spoken eighth grader, who smiles more than he speaks.  He is always willing to do the extra work and has been a big factor in many of our games throughout the season.  To see him get that game winner was an awesome moment for the entire Thomas lacrosse family.   He comes from a long line of lacrosse members who have played for Webster.  Obviously, his dad but also his Uncles and his Grandpa played for Thomas in the early years."

Offensive Player of the Week

Tano AuriusoMelkamu Blueye - Marcus Whitman Midfielder

Melkamu Blueye score the game-winning overtime goal on a feed from Logan Storms to lift the Wildcats over Bloomfield-Honeoye last week. After returning from an injury during the season, he has been greatly responsible for five winning games for Pal-Mac.

Head Coach Mike Gorton says, "Melkamu missed several games in the middle of the season due to injury.  Since his return, we are 5-1.  Against Bloomfield he carried the team, scoring five goals, including the game winner in OT.  He also had 10 GB's and 4 takes, several of each on our offensive end to regain possession.

He is our workhorse on both ends of the field and one of the hardest workers I've ever coached."

Defensive Player of the Week

Cam RyanWill Gordon - McQuaid Goalie

Will Gordon made twenty-six saves last week as the Knights beat Fairport and Victor. With saves percentage above his average, he recorded ten saves (67%) in the Fairport game and sixteen saves (73%) in the Victor game. His career saves at McQuaid is 397 saves.

Head Coach Alex Gray says, “Will had a great week last week with a 10 saves on Tuesday and a season-high 16 saves on Thursday. He has been our starting goalie since he was a sophomore and he has improved each year. Will is a 2-year captain and has been one of the biggest leaders on our team. He has been a pleasure to coach and he leads by example through his play, his mental toughness, and commitment to his team.”
