Men's Lacrosse Loses Hard-Fought 9-8 Decision to Saint Leo
SALISBURY, NC -- Visiting Saint Leo rallied in the fourth quarter to take a 9-8 win over Catawba in men’s lacrosse action on Wednesday afternoon at Shuford Stadium. The Lions improve to 3-1, while the Catawba Indians fall to 0-3.
Adam Hebert (Charlotte, NC/Charlotte Catholic HS) gave Catawba an 8-5 lead on a tally with 13:42 left, but the Lions held the Indians off the board the rest of the way. Goals one minute apart from Matt Obermeyer and Ryan Burks cut the margin to 9-7 with 11:59 remaining.
Saint Leo used a pair of man-up situations to score its final two goals. Miles Britton tied it with 10:51 to go and Kevin Hutchinson put in what turned out to be the winner with 7:32 to play. The Indians had possession for the final minutes, but David Moore saved two Catawba shots in the final 30 seconds.
Catawba had not trailed until Hutchinson's goal midway through the final quarter. Steven Ridolfo (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS/Gettysburg) and John Scheich (Waxhaw, NC/Weddington HS) had early goals to put the Indians up 2-0. Saint Leo tied it, but Josh Reedy (Lake Mary, FL/Lake Mary HS) and Tyler Ulrich (Ephrata, PA/Ephrata HS) scored in the final 1:09 to give Catawba a 4-2 edge after a quarter.
Neither team scored in the second quarter with Britton and Scheich alternating goals in the first four minutes of the second half to leave Catawba up 6-4. Scheich and Ridolfo sandwiched goals around one from Mike Kavanagh of Saint Leo to put the Indians up 7-5 going to the final quarter.
Britton had three goals for Saint Leo. Burke had two goals and an assist. Will Cothron controlled the face-off circle, winning 13-of-19 for the Lions. Scheich had three goals for Catawba. Ridolfo had two goals with Hebert scoring a goal and handing out an assist.
Saint Leo held a slight 36-33 edge in shots with Moore making 10 saves for the Lions. Pete Wesselman (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS/Stevenson) stymied 15 of the shots from Saint Leo in goal for Catawba.
