| Saturday: Schroeder over Irondequoit || May 5,2007 - Proving how close the Class A teams are this year, Schroeder beat Irondequoit in a close game (6-5). Rush-Henrietta

games was scheduled to take place weeks earlier, and it was a
highly anticipated game that pitted Webster Schroeder against highly
successful Irondequoit, who up to this week was undefeated. Although the Warriors
controlled much of the game, leading 2-1 after the first and 6-2 at the half,
the Eagles came back in the second half, scoring the only three
goals, the last of which was scored with only 0:19 left in the game.
In the end it was Schroeder with the 6-5 win over the visiting Eagles. Irondequoit junior defenseman, Sean Davern drew the assignment to
slow down Grant Catalino and he, along with well rehearsed slides
from adjacent teammates, did a commendable job, stopping a number
of drives by the big attackman, that would, for other teams, have
resulted in goals against. They started on the first Warrior drive,
pushing Catalino away from the goal on his "patented" drive
from the goalies' right. The Eagles then knocked down a pass and
took the ball to other end of the field to the cheers from the Irondequoit
sidelines. Catalino would not go without impact, however, scoring
two unassisted goals and adding an assist in the second quarter.
The Warrior win, however, was greatly the result of a stellar day
by goalie Zack Marshall, who came up with save after save at key,
momentum swinging moments. Marshall, who recorded 7 saves in the
both the first and fourth quarters and 3 in the second and third,
saw many short range shots as the Eagles found open inside feeds.
Schroeder started the scoring at 7:56, as Mike Tota scored the first
of his 2g-1a on a feed from defenseman Drew Palmer when, during
a Warrior fast break clear, an Irondequoit defenseman slid too early.
The Eagles came immediately back on the next face off, finding their
own inside fast break as Greg Wright scored on a feed from Andrew
Hart at 7:48. Less than a minute later, Andy Winslow found Tota
breaking to the crease to give Schroeder a 2-1 lead at the end of
the first quarter. Although Irondequoit controlled a great deal
of the ball time in the first quarter, due in great part
by extraordinary ground ball efforts and hustle, Marshall took
the wind out of the sails by stopping most of the the excellent
shots on goal by Irondequoit.
Webster scored the first three goals in the second quarter. Catalino
bulled his way on a cut from behind the goal and scored an unassisted
goal at 10:43. When Irondequoit tried to substitute a large number
of players on a Webster clear, senior attackman Austin Orsini was
left alone on the crease and scored on a pass from Tota at 8:18.
Catalino scored again, this time with a blazing shot at the feet
of Irondequoit goalie Zack Nash. Kevin Coholan scored for Irondequoit
with an unassisted outside shot at 3:21. Catalino found Winslow
breaking to the crease for a Webster goal that ended the scoring
for the half with Schroeder up 6-2.
Irondequoit scored all three of the second half goals. In the third
quarter the single goal was scored by Andrew Hart with an assist
from senior middie Tim Kleehammer at the 3:00 mark.
Schroeder led 6-3 after three.
Irondequoit continued to control the pace of the game with the majority
of ball time, but Marshall, who came up with seven saves, kept the
Eagles from the win. Greg Wright scored in man up at 4:58, taking
the score to 6-4 and giving the Eagles a powerful boost. A number
of shots off cage and two saves by Nash, kept the Warriors off the
scoreboard. Coholan scored (unassisted) in man up with a drive right
down the center of the field at 0:19.
Webster gained possession on the next face-off and held on the
ball and the win in the great example of Section Five lacrosse.
