Jackson Polar Bear Lacrosse
POLAR BEARS WAKE UP IN THE SECOND HALF TO TOP WOOSTER 14-6
May. 11, 2017
On another gorgeous night in Jackson Township, the Polar Bears had another opportunity to compete and improve before playoffs. After a very sloppy first half, Jackson played their best quarter of the year and scored eight third quarter goals en route to a 14-6 win. The team was able to get 27 players in the game.
Offensively, Jackson came out slow and sluggish. The offense finally came alive just fourteen seconds into the third quarter and never looked back. Cole Remlinger earned a game ball for his two goals and three assists and efforts on rides. Sam Shew (four goals, three assists) and John Thomas (three goals, two assists) continued to show why they are two of the best in the region. Dominic Faiella had plenty of looks and registered two goals and one assist. Cole Novak registered his first varsity goal and earned a game ball for his efforts all over the field. Seniors Blake Haas and Jonathan Lombardi also registered single tallies. This was the second game in a row where the team had seven different goal scorers. Jackson continued to control the faceoff X thru the efforts of Chance Clevenger and Joe Eckenrode going a combined 15/22. The Polar Bears hope to continue this offensive spread against Hoover on Saturday.
Defensively, the Polar Bears also came out unfocused and surrendered six first half goals. However, the defense came together in the second half to post a shut out in the final two quarters. Chase Altier, Ian Gelal, Ted Stuhldreher, and Trent Thomas did a much better job in the second half of controlling their one on one match-ups. Adam Kelly made ten saves in the cage and Nick Smith made two.
The Polar Bears have two days to prepare for Saturday's contest with Hoover.
No JV game, the Polar Bears wrap up their season on Saturday against Hoover.
