a game that some have suggestion could be a preview of the State
Quarterfinal match, Webster Schroeder and Orchard
Park (Section 6) played excellent lacrosse and for most of the
game the game was close. In the end, however, Schroeder took control
of the game and earned the victory with a 10-6 score at McAvoy Park
The scoring began late in the first as Webster's Nick Mooney scored
in man-up (assisted by Grant Catalino) at 5:32. Orchard Park tied
the game at 3:23 when Kevin Lalley scored (unassisted) with an outside
shot. With only 0:09 remaining in the quarter Schroeder took the
lead again when Catalino bulled his way from behind the cage for
an unassisted goal. Schroeder led 2-1 at the end of the first quarter.
Andy Winslow scored in the second on a crease feed from Mike Tota
who led all scorers in the game with 5g-1a. The Quakers scored the
next two goals starting with an outside feed from Mike Allaire to
Lalley and an inside feed from Lalley to Greg Michael. The score
was tied at three at the start of the half time break.
The Warriors scored the first three goals of the
second half while the defensive unit held Orchard Park scoreless
until 0:18 remained. Tota scored his first goal (assisted by Mike
Barilla) at 11:29 and was followed by unassisted goals by Barilla
and Tota. The Quaker goal came from Jeff Tundo (unassisted). The
Warriors took a 6-4 lead going into the final quarter.
Schroeder scored the first four goals and the Quakers
did not score their final two goals until the end of the game. Barilla
(unassisted) started the scoring with 6:39 remaining. Only 0:29
second later Tota scored his first of three in a row. A fast-break
goal, assisted by Catalino marked Tota's fourth, and his fifth was
a one-on-one drive at 3:33. Lalley (unassisted), scored again for
the Quakers. The final Orchard Park goal was scored by Mike Moran
The Warriors had only six shooters in the game. Leading the charge
were Tota (8s/7on/5g) and Mooney (8s/4on/1g). Winslow (7s/4on/1g),
Catalino (6s/4on/1g), Barilla (5s/2on/2g) and Austin Orsini (2s/1on)
accounted for the remaining shots. In total the Warrior offense
took 36 shots, with 22 on cage and 10 goals.
Defensively, Orchard Park's Derrick Danieu's performance
was noteworthy as he recorded four takes, including two one-on-one
takes against Catalino. Danieu, who will play at Binghamton next
year, contributed greatly to the Quaker's defensive effort.
Park was a pleasure to watch. The big, athletic players routinely
chased down ground balls, and played hard, tough defense while their
offensive players took blazing shots, that, although, often off
cage, were considerably faster than those seen in most Section Five
Webster's Drew Palmer, also made a strong individual
effort picking up the ground ball and winning the face-off 5 times.
He was only a part, however of a mostly team defensive effort that
included Tim Winslow, Eric Horeth and Tim Marshall. Critical in
the win was Schroeder's defensive midfield including Steve Sullivan.
The Warriors played aggressively all over the field and the riding
team limited easy clears for OP.
Both goalies made dramatic saves throughout the
game. Ryan Cole recorded 12s/10ga (55%) for OP and Zach Marshall
recorded 6s/6ga (50%) for Schroeder.
With Palmer's help the Warriors won 15/20 (75%)
face-offs. Chris Topping recorded 9/12 (75%) and Barilla recorded

(2g-1a), Catalino (1g-2a), Winslow (1g), and Mooney (1g). Schroeder

(1g), Tundo (1g), Moran (1g) and Allaire (1a). The Quakers move
to 2-3 after losses to national ranked Georgetown Prep and Loyola-Blakefield
