Eagles Rally to Defeat New Hanover 10-7 in Men's Lacrosse

03/19/2014

Backed by another strong defensive effort including 16 saves by goalie Zac Tilley, the Boys Varsity Lacrosse Team defeated New Hanover last night 10 - 7 in a hard fought game. The Eagles' offense was ineffective in the first quarter, and the team started the game down 2 - 0. Fortunately they were able to turn it around in the second period and Ashley led 6 - 3 at the half. The rest of the game see-sawed back and forth. Austin Henderson made a key interception as the Wildcats were pressing in the fourth quarter and smart offensive possessions in the end of that quarter put the game out of reach. 

6 Eagles contributed goals. Owen Finnegan led all scorers with 5 points (1G;4A) followed by Colton Blackman with 4 points (3G;1A). Mike Colella contributed 1 goal and 1 assist, but also vacuumed up 8 ground balls.
   
The team plays @ Hoggard on Friday at 7:15.
