Fanzo's OT Goal Lifts Men's Lacrosse to Opening Win
YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. -- Sophomore Cole Fanzo (Crofton, Md./S. River) scored a minute and a half into overtime to lift visiting Catawba to a 10-9 season-opening men’s lacrosse victory over Young Harris on Tuesday afternoon at the YHC Soccer and Lacrosse Field. Catawba had tied the game on Dalton Cook’s (St. Augustine's, Fla./Bartram Trail) goal midway through the fourth quarter.
Fanzo led Catawba with four goals. Cook had two goals, while Trevor Bellotte (Severna Park, Md./Severna Park) had two goals and an assist. Ryan Applegate (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Ponte Vedra) made 15 saves in goal, including a key stop near the end of regulation.
The Catawba Indians led 4-0 after a quarter. Colin Beecham (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton) notched the season’s first goal at the 10:40 mark with Bellotte scoring both of his goals in the period. Young Harris battled back, keeping Catawba scoreless in the second to lead 5-4 at the break. Garrett Blake scored all three of his goals in the run.
Fanzo scored twice in the opening two minutes of the second half and the teams went back-and-forth until the end. The Mountain Lions tallied back-to-back to go up 7-6 before Cook tied it. Bevan Pate had YHC up at the end of the third after his goal with 47 seconds left.
Reid Lichtenberger (Austin, Texas/Vandergrift) tied the game for the Indians early in the fourth, but Duncan Jackson returned the lead to Young Harris with 9:56 to go. Cook would again pull Catawba even, tying the game at 9-9 with 8:30 to go.
Young Harris had possession inside the final minute, but Applegate stopped a shot by Sam Gasta and Catawba cleared. Beecham’s shot to win it was blocked. In overtime, YHC won the faceoff, but had a turnover after a minute of possession. Catawba called timeout after the clear and Fanzo netted the winner on an assist from Chase Scott (Charlotte, N.C./S. Mecklenburg).
Catawba will host Belmont Abbey on Friday at 4 pm.
