Lacrossers split week

The Wolves showed off their skills as they began the season last week.
They scored their first win on home territory against Perrysburg last Friday and taking them down, 12-4.
‘I thought overall it was a good victory,? said Brian Kaminskas, Boys Varsity Lacrosse head coach. ‘We came out a little slow, a little flat. As the game went on we picked up our intensity and our plan.?
Perrysburg took control of the game scoring the first goal from the beginning of the game.
The Ohio team didn’t have a chance to celebrate as junior Alex Dziewit scored on his attempt and tied the score 8:55 in the first quarter. He hit again less than three minutes later scoring another goal.
Senior Andrew Miller continued the distance adding one more with 22 seconds remaining in the quarter.
Chapin White opened the next quarter with another goal for the Wolves off a pass from goalie Jeff Turner.
As the clock counted down to the remaining eight minutes Hunter Layson rounded Perrysburg’s net and tossed it in putting Clarkston at five goals.
Perrysburg grabbed control and headed to Clarkston’s net finding a block from Sam Bell and Miller.
Dziewit finished off his hat trick capitalizing on opportunity.
Clarkston’s attempt on the goal was stopped at the net and as the ball went lose Dziewit put it in for a goal.
Perrysburg made their attempt with 2:50 left in the half only to be stopped by Turner.
Clarkston returned the favor shooting four attempts on Perrysburg’s net in the last minute of the game.
‘We were a little flat coming out at half-time but it’s something we can work on,? said Kaminskas. ‘It’s always nice to get a win, especially the home opener.?
Miller and Layson added two more goals to finish the night with a hat trick.
Turner had eight saves for the night.
‘Joe Sharkey and Whitey (Chapin White) both had pretty good games,? Kaminskas added.
JV outworked Perrysburg and beat them 15-1.
The boys played their first game on March 24 against Walled Lake Central and lost, 10-8.
‘We did not play a very good game,? said Kaminskas. ‘We rushed everything. We didn’t settle down. We were out hustled and out muscled.?
Jordan Kincaid and Miller had three goals each for the night and Dziewit scored two in the game.
‘Without a doubt if we had a player of the game who was responsible for it being a close game was Jeff Turner, our goalie,? said Kaminskas.
Turner had 16 saves during the game.
The boys face a busy week before going on spring break and it started against Walled Lake Central on Tuesday.
They host Canton and Detroit Country Day to finish the week.
‘The competition level is going to build as the week goes on,? said Kaminskas. ‘The rivalry will build.?
The boys take on Canton on Thursday night, beginning at 5:30 p.m. with the JV game.
‘They have always been a good opponent,? he added. ‘They have a pretty good offense, a few good shototers, and pretty high pressure. We will have to prepare this week with the guys to make sure we are shooting and dodging around pressure.?
As for Detroit Country Day the boys have been waiting all year.
‘This is the game the guys really wanted to play,? said Kaminiskas.
They play Detroit Country Day at 11a.m. on Saturday.
