LANDON LACROSSE 9 EPISCOPAL 6

Today’s game was the last regular season IAC game and senior’s day. The Maroon, 11-6 with a 7.6 GF average, have a 1st rate coach, Scott Conklin (a 2 time AA and twice 1st team All Ivy attackman) who usually gets the most out of his boys. The game was being observed by the Penn Lacrosse Coach. On Friday, the Bears face DC’s #1 ranked team. All those distractions may have contributed to less than energetic play by the home team. A vigorous 3rd period and part of the 4th created a six goal advantage, Bears 9 Maroon 6.

The first quarter started like many recent games with the opponents feeling each other out. At 9:27, Peter Laco made a crisp pass out to Hank Brown. Three minutes later, EHS’ Will Davy passed to Armour Shaw (6:13, end of 102.7 of scoreless time for Bears’ opponents).

END OF 1ST Q BEARS 1 MAROON 1

The visitors took a lead at 7:02 of this period on Will Davy’s pass to Brooks Davy. The Bears equaled that goal total, after a time out. The ball moved as the coaches requested (it is presumed), a shot was launched, the visitors somehow blocked that attempt and the ball landed on the ground. There Taylor Valencia gained possession amongst hostile and friendly sticks, turned, fired a Landon goal at 0:11.

HALFTIME BEARS 2 MAROON 2

The Bears took the lead at 8:02 with a crisp pass from Matt Potolicchio to Sean O’Brien. The lead grew by one when Charlie Schnider moved the ball to Hank Brown at 5:01.The next two successive goals were the results of great shots. First, Charlie nailed the far corner on an alley dodge, unassisted at 0:38. The next faceoff was successfully won and the ball in the crease of Jack Falk, who virtually replicated #11’s shot at 0:06.

END OF 3rd Q BEARS 6 MAROON 2

This trend of quick succession of fast break goals transcended periods; faceoff won, fast break and awesome goals was the pattern for the first 31 seconds of the last stanza. First, Charlie fed Matt, quick stick goal at 11:48.The scorebook’s ink entry was barely dry when the pen returned to record another goal; this one 19 seconds later and this one a BEAUTIFUL corner shot by Marshall Peters. Bears up 8-2 and they may have relaxed a bit. The Maroon deposited 4 goals in a row—Will Davy unassisted, Adam Lunn unassisted, Johnny Bond from W. Davy and then Timmy Phillips again from Will Davy at 11:19,8:27, 5;45 and 4:48 respectively, Bears 8 EHS6.

The Maroon were called for a loose ball push, a 30 second penalty. The Bears EMO worked to perfection; a WICKED ball fake by Charlie, a quick pass to a cutting Peter Laco, quick stick, goal at 4:27.

KHARI   BATEN THAT’S A BEAR AWARD                        This award reflects some important   Bear values and KEVIN KEENA is and   extraordinary example of what it means to be a Bear teammate. Leadership does   not mean that you stand in the front of the group or that you lead the team   in statistics. It means that you always exude enthusiasm, that you work harder in every practice; that when the Bears are down, your voice is heard;   that you make sure that the new player is included; and that the dejected playerknows that he is critical to the team. Those characteristics are the essence of #26.
