Jackson Polar Bear Lacrosse


Varsity Notes:

The Jackson Polar Bears traveled north to play their regional foe Solon on a gorgeous spring night this past Friday.  After 46 shots and several quality scoring opportunities, Jackson came home with a solid 12-4 win.

Offensively, the team was clicking and produced plenty of quality looks at the cage.  John Thomas (one assist) and Carson Potere showed why they are two of the best in the area by scoring four goals each.  Cole Remlinger lead the team from the attack position and contributed two goals and two assists.  Dominic Faiella and Joe Faflik each chipped in one goal and one assist.  Chance Clevenger had one assist, but had a huge day at the face-off X going 15/19.

Defensively, the team was solid and limited Solon's scoring chances by only giving up 22 shots.  EJ Paulhardt held Solon's main threat to only one goal on the night.  Ben Burch earned the defensive game ball for his tough on ball efforts.  Justin Novak was all over the field scooping up seven groundballs on the day.  Adam Kelly made some clutch saves throughout the game to eliminate any offensive momentum for Solon.

Jackson returns to action against a tough Chagrin Falls squad on Tuesday.

Coming off a rough loss the night before, the Polar Bears got the chance to get right back at it by facing GlenOak on Wednesday night.  The team was able to get a season high 23 players into the game to contribute to the 20-3 win.  Overall, thirteen players registered at least one point on the night.  

Offensively, the team was extremely balanced and it was great to see multiple players contribute to the scoring effort.  Dominic Faiella had a big night with five goals and one assist and received the offensive game ball.  Luke Walker, Victor Shott, and EJ Paulhardt all registered their first ever varsity goals.  Chance Clevenger, Victor Shott, and Alex Shepherd were dominate at the face-off X going 23/25.

Defensively, the defense was lead by senior Nick Smith who earned his first varsity win and the defensive game ball in goal with six saves.

The Polar Bears return to action on Friday as they travel to Solon for a big regional match-up.

Varsity Notes:

Jackson traveled to Hudson Tuesday night to take on regional foe Hudson.  In a back and forth battle, the Polar Bears fell 12-9 after a hard fought contest.

Offensively, the team was lead again by John Thomas.  He finished with a game high five goals and received a gameball for his tireless effort all over the field.  Carson Potere and Cole Remlinger (one assist) each scored two goals and Andrew Barnes and Jack Dennis each had an assist.  

Defensively, the team did a great job of limiting Hudson's fast break run and gun offense.  However, costly turnovers lead to too many opportunities for the high energy Hudson offense.  The defense did a great job of creating turnovers and improved greatly in the clearing game.  Victor Shott earned a gameball for his strong one on one defense and all around hustle.  Adam Kelly came up with some big saves throughout the game en route to a 12 save night.

Junior Varsity Notes:

The junior varsity lost a heart-breaker to Hudson in overtime by a score of 7-6.  Brady Hawke had a huge game in goal and Alex Shepherd did a great job at the face-off X.  Overall, the team showed a lot of heart by battling back after being down 5-1 and continues to improve!

The Polar Bears returned from spring break to take on Green on a cold and snowy night in Jackson.  Although inconsistent at times, the Polar Bears were victorious by a score of 13-3.

Offensively, Jackson struggled to find a consistent rhythm, but had a nice six goal run in the third quarter to help put the game away.  Chance Clevenger earned the Offensive Game Ball for his two goals and battles at the face-off X.  Freshman Will Hoover made the most of his time on the field and registered his first career high school goals.  Carson Potere (two goals, two assists), John Thomas (four goals, 1 assist), Dominic Faiella (one goal, two assists), Cole Remlinger (two goals, two assists), and Joe Faflik (two assists) all contributed to the offensive output.

Defensively, the Jackson defense limited Green to low percentage opportunities and did a great job in the clearing game.  Justin Novak earned the Defensive Game Ball for his hustle, passion, and five groundballs.  Adam Kelly (6 saves) and Nick Smith (4 saves) both saw time in the cage.

Jackson will travel to Mentor this Friday for another region 2 match-up.

Varsity Notes:

The Jackson Lacrosse team traveled to Toledo to take on St. Francis Desales on a rainy Tuesday night.  The Polar Bears had a great start, but were eventually down 9-5 in the third quarter.  However, Jackson had other plans in mind and put together a stingy effort to complete the comeback in a 13-11 win.

Offensively, the team came hungry against the St. Francis zone defense and took 40 shots.  John Thomas showed his competitive spirit and scored a career-high eight goals.  Carson Potere got the scoring going with the first two goals of the game.  Cole Novak continued to show improvement and registered two goals and one assist, but made some big plays between the lines.  Cole Remlinger continued his monster start to the season with one goal and six assists.  Jack Dennis came in and had a huge assist on the game tying goal.  Chance Clevenger battled all night long at the faceoff X taking all 27 and added an assist.

Defensively, the Polar Bears started off hot and pressured the St. Francis offense into turnovers.  After suffering seven second quarter goals, the defense locked it down the rest of the game.  Justin Novak did a great job covering St. Francis's top midfielder and was a major part of the clearing game.  The defense did a great job of regrouping and making key plays in the second half.

The Polar Bears will take on Green when they return from spring break.
