Cubs overpower Clarkston defense in 17-3 loss

University of Detroit-Jesuit blocked Clarkston from lacrosse finals for a second year.
The Cubs made 35 shots on Clarkston’s goal, beating the Wolves, 17-3.
‘There’s a reason these guys did what they did with the Catholic league and in the Midwest,? said Clarkston coach Brian Kaminskas. ‘They’re playing at a different level. They’re playing at where we’re trying to get.
‘We upped our schedule this year and put a few more challenges in front of the guys to prepare for it. We’ll just keep doing that.?
The Cubs found a way past Clarkston’s defense and went into half-time with a 7-1 lead.
Matt McEntee made the goal for Clarkston with an assist from Andrew Schram.
‘We played our defense upward to 20 minutes in the first half,? said Kaminskas. ‘It’s tough to win a ball game like that.?
The Cubs came back from the break and in the first three minutes of the new half scored four against Clarkston.
Jon Avery gained control of the ball and put it in the net for the Wolves. The goal only pushed the Cubs to score two more.
In the final quarter, Avery passed the ball to Jackson Marr. Seconds counted down and Marr threw it into the net, 14-3.
Senior goaltender Zach Lewy had 18 saves for the game.
‘He stood on his head for us today,? said Kaminskas. ‘We will have him up for all-state. He was an all-stater last year. I think he is very proud of his career and he should be. He has had a helluva a run for us and we wish them well.
‘The guys fought the whole game,? said Kaminskas. ‘We told them play your best game. Your best will be good enough. I thought the last two minutes they hustled. They wanted to end on a good note and they worked for it and I am happy. I am proud of them.?
The season ended at a 8-9 record.
