Utica 12 - Avondale - 3
The Chieftain lacrosse team continued their winning ways Tuesday night at Avondale, winning their third in a row: 12-3. Defense led the way with an effort that could only be described as “relentless”. Ryan Carrier had 23 saves in goal while his front line of Mason Palicke, Ryan Fromm and Gio DiNoto kept Avondale's attack off balance all night. In addition, first year player, Omar Hassan, logged key minutes in his first action of the season. On the offensive side of the field, Maguire Palicke (5), Matt Mahoney (3), Zach Essenmacher (2), Tavish Smith (1) and Ben Wise (1) all found the back of the net. One area of improvement worth noting was the combined efforts of Michael Simopolos and Tavish Smith who combined to win nine face-offs during the game.
