Texas High School Boys Lacrosse: The Woodlands Boys Lacrosse Goes 5-0 After Defeating Episcopal Houston 14-10 On March 10 And Faces State Champion Highland Park On March 18


Perhaps it was playing their first game on the road, perhaps the lighting was different or perhaps the grass was taller, but The Woodlands Varsity committed 26 turnovers (many of them unforced) in their game against EHS. The Woodlands also fared terribly in the face off department by winning only 10 of 26 faces.  So, enough of the bad news. Let’s push forward to the good stuff.
 
The good news is they were talented enough to overcome those  mistakes to win and move their record to 5-0 (3-0 in district).

Coach: Dave Seale

 
Sophomore attack Ian Seale had a big night with 6 points on 4 goals and 2 assists. Junior attack Jackson LaPlant had 5 points (3 goals and 2 assists) and freshman attack Connor Pryor chipped in with 5 points on 3 assists and 2 goals.  Special recognition should go to Pryor as he stepped in and filled some big shoes (figuratively, not literally, for those who know Spencer Willey) when sophomore attack Bucky Desedier fell ill and sophomore attack Spencer Willey went down in the first half with a severely sprained ankle. Junior middie Chase Rogers added 3 goals and sophomore middie Connor Milton banged 2 goals in the game.  Senior middie C J Conlon dished an assist, sophomore attack Spencer Willey got on the board before his injury by adding a goal and junior middie Luke Anderson banged a goal to round out the scoring in the game for The Woodlands. 
 
It only took 9 seconds for Episcopal to give The Woodlands the message that they were here to play and weren’t going to make this win an easy one.  EHS won the face, their middie raced down the field and dished a beautiful assist to their attackman who finished it off and, just like that, EHS was up 1-0.  The Woodlands answered quickly when Ian Seale got things rolling for The Woodlands with an assist to Jackson LaPlant for a goal with 9:47 left in the first. LaPlant then forced a turnover on a ride, picked up the ground ball, raced to the net and banged a goal at the 7:27 mark to give The Woodlands a 2-1 lead.
EHS answered right back with a goal with 6:28 in the 1st. With 2:01 left in the 1st, Seale scored an unassisted goal and then dished a beautiful assist to Spencer Willey near the net for a goal with 13 seconds to go. The 1st quarter ended with The Woodlands up 2-1.
 
Seale dished another assist, this time to junior middie Chase Rogers for a goal at the 10:30 mark in the 2nd quarter for what appeared to be a commanding lead of 5-2.  EHS had other plans as they scored the next two goals at the 7 minute and 4:27 marks respectively to make the score 5-4 in favor of The Woodlands. freshman attack Connor Pryor assisted Seale for a goal with 1:55 mark to give the Woodlands a little breathing room with 1:55 to go before the half.  However, EHS again showed their mettle with 2 more goals at the 30 second mark and the 15 second mark to tie the score at 6-6 at halftime. The Woodlands only attempted 3 shots in the 2nd quarter.
 
The Woodlands came out inspired in the 3rd and scored 4 straight goals to take the lead by a score of 10-6. LaPlant had an unassisted goal at the 10:38 mark. The two Connors, Pryor and Milton, hooked up when Pryor assisted Milton for a goal with 9:25 left in the 3rd. Senior middie C J Conlon got on the board when he assisted Milton, who promptly banged it home with 8:27 left and LaPlant dished to Pryor for a goal with 7:11 left. So, within 5 minutes of play, The Woodlands scored 4 straight goals to take the lead at 10-6.  Once again EHS refused to quit and scored two goals of their own at the 4:23 and 3:07 marks. When the buzzer sounded to end the 3rd quarter The Woodlands had a narrow lead of 10-8.
 
The 4th quarter started well when Pryor again assisted Rogers for a goal in a man up situation with 8:30 left in the game to make the score 11-8. EHS again answered the call by quickly scoring a goal at the 8:02 mark to bring them back to within 2 goals at 11-9.  LaPlant found Pryor and he hit the back of the net at the 7:43 mark and Seale hit junior middie Luke Anderson who banged it through and The Woodlands now held a 13-9 lead with 6:54 left.  Rogers then forced a turn over, scooped the ground ball and scored with 2:31 left in the game to give The Woodlands a commanding lead at 14-9. EHS managed a goal with 46 seconds left and the game ended with the score 14-9 in favor of The Woodlands.
 
Senior defenseman Michael Rizzuti was ground ball king with 8 while LaPlant scooped up 7 gb’s.  Junior goalie Chris Howell hung in strong  and had 9 saves for the night. Senior defensemen Rizzuti, Jack Whelan, Kevin Kohli and Erik Espino played hard while somewhat containing EHS high powered offense. Also helping out on D was junior defenseman Nick Sivon (welcome back),  sophomore LSM Nate Kaufman and sophomore defenseman Jack Whelan. 
 
The Woodlands (ranked #5 in the state by Westside Lacrosse) will take the second half of spring break to Dallas for a huge road test against #2 state ranked (#3 ranked team west of the Mississippi) Highland Park on Thursday the 18th,  #1 state ranked (and #1 ranked team west of the Mississippi) St Marks on Friday the 19th and #7 state ranked Episcopal Dallas on Saturday the 20th.

Southern California High School Boys Lacrosse: CIF-Southern Section Lacrosse Los Angeles Division Features Mira Costa And Palos Verdes Who Will Challenge 2009 Champion Loyola


It’s the newest high school sport in the South Bay, so it’s the “fastest-growing” by default.

But to think of lacrosse as some sort of a fad is wrong. The sport has long been a staple of athletic programs on the East Coast and simply needed time to gain a foothold on the West Coast.

For those unfamiliar with the sport, it looks somewhat like soccer, requires its players to be as tough as football players and have hand skills like hockey players.

“It’s a fast-paced game,” Mira Costa midfielder Connor Murphy said. “You always have your adrenaline going. You’re not waiting for something to happen like in baseball. It’s exciting and fun to watch.”

And because the players carry sticks and can play behind the goalkeeper, it certainly has appeal for hockey enthusiasts.

“People who are new to the sport always ask to see the ball,” Mira Costa midfielder Nick De La Espriella said.

And people who are new to the game always marvel at how physical it is.

“It’s even more physical than football because you get to use the sticks,” Mira Costa defender Alex Dodge said.

West Coast lacrosse players tend to have family members who have played on the East Coast, but some just see people participating on a nearby field and decided to give it a whirl.

South Bay programs play in the Bay League, which includes Mira Costa, Palos Verdes, Peninsula, Redondo, Chadwick, Culver City, Beverly Hills and Downey.

The CIF Southern Section does not have a sanctioned playoffs for the sport yet, but the top 12 teams from Los Angeles County play a postseason tournament with the winner taking on the winner of a 16-team all-Orange County team tournament.

The winner earns the right to call itself the “CIF champion.”

Last year, Mira Costa reached the L.A. County final before losing a 9-8, sudden-death, double-overtime match to Loyola.

“Oh yeah, we want to get there again – and farther,” defender Cole Russert said. “This year, we have more athletes, a bunch of kids who like to play lacrosse. It’s given us more depth.

“Last year, our goal was to win the Bay League. But we set that bar too low. That was our original goal. Now, it’s CIF and we believe we have the best team in L.A.”

Those new players appear to be buying into the program.

“A lot of guys have committed more time toward getting better at lacrosse,” Dodge said.

As the team gets ready for the season and expects to duel with a strong PV team, another goal is to expand the sport within the South Bay.

“Out here, it’s slowly coming,” Mira Costa coach Dave Vinci said. “We have about 70 teams in the Southern Section (120 are needed for a sanctioned playoffs). When I first started, we had about 30 teams. It’s really blowing up.”

Palos Verdes: The Sea Kings return nine starters and should provide a legitimate contender to Mira Costa’s Bay League throne. Six-foot-four senior defenseman Zach Rodgers is a wall in the middle of the field and already has committed to Division I Providence College. Seniors Josh Carroll, a two-year starter, and Ian Powell, who started every game last season, form a strong defensive nucleus. Coach Lane Jaffe’s team features All-Bay League selection Matt Schladen at goalkeeper. Jaffe said Schladen, who has started every game since his sophomore year, is the best goalkeeper in the league. Brandon Lim, a returning all-league pick, leads a strong offense. Joining him on the attack are senior Mike Cocke, who is making the move from midfielder, and senior Peter Loddengard, who has returned from shoulder surgery. Jaffe said his attackers have played together since the eighth grade. Senior Erick Trelenberg and sophomores Zach Henkhaus and Zack Fixen are the midfielders.

Peninsula: In his first year, Coach Christian Sears took the Panthers to the playoffs. Now, they’re thinking about a league title. The top returners for the third-year program are on defense – senior goalkeeper Barrington Wilson, senior defensemen Daniel Tarr and James Park. Senior midfielder Spencer Winter is being recruited and midfielder Blake Allman is strong on faceoffs and can contribute on offense and defense. Sears said senior midfielder Ching Kao and junior Kodiak Spybell are solid. The team also returns senior attackers Jason Yamanaka and Scott Spelman.

Redondo: Coach Phil Comito said the Sea Hawks may not have the firepower to compete with Mira Costa and Palos Verdes just yet, but he indicates his team is poised to make a run at the top half of the league standings. Seniors Nate Roth and Josh McClendon anchor a defense that is the team’s strength. They are supported by senior midfielder Regan Riggs and juniors Dillon Guth, Zac Inzer and Taylor Romero. Senior attackers Michael Cross and Bennett Trotter lead the offense. Comito said the future looks bright with a strong group of sophomores ready to contribute.

Chadwick: First-year coach Alex Caldwell said he has a tough task, but that the Dolphins have a lot of talent. Seniors Mark Kasfardjian and Michael Mavredakis anchor the defense in front of sophomore goalkeeper Zach Goodman. The remainder of the team is young and Caldwell expects the team to battle in league play. Caldwell believes his squad can finish close to the elite trio of Mira Costa, PV and Peninsula if the young players step up.

Culver City: With the birth of the Bay League, 10th year coach Casey Chabola is happy he doesn’t have to travel as much as he used to in past years. Playing in Orange County was nice, but he’d rather stick closer to home, he said. The Centaurs are experienced on the attack and on defense, but are soft in the middle of the field. Composed of mostly seniors and sophomores, the team could see some growing pains. Senior attacker Alek Fabijaniak is expected to be the go-to scorer. Goalkeeper Phil Beer is solid, as is senior defenseman Andrew Baird. Senior midfielder Matt Gima is expected to provide leadership for the younger players.

Western College Men’s Lacrosse: Colorado State Men’s Lacrosse Defeats Arizona State 14-10 To Solidify Top 5 Credentials


The Colorado State Rams won a fierce game against the Arizona State Sun Devils, keeping neck and neck most of the game, and taking the lead early in the fourth quarter. The teams were equally matched, and the game had the potential to go either way, but the Rams won 14-10 and made it known that they deserve to be ranked in the top five.

 “We fought hard from start to finish and I’m so proud of our guys for executing our game plan,” said Head Coach Alex Smith. Today’s game was well played on both sides, and both teams were statistically well matched. “ASU is a terrific lacrosse team and we had to work hard for this one, that’s for sure,” Coach Smith said.

The first half was an intense display of both teams’ abilities. The two teams traded goals, never getting more than one point ahead of the other. Plays were executed with precision, and Rams’ goalie Alex Jacques made a number of huge saves.

The Rams developed a strategy to combat the Sun Devils. “We didn’t want to get into a track meet with these guys because offensively they are as good as anyone in the country,” Coach Smith said. “I thought we did a great job of stopping transition and making them work for their goals.  We got some great defensive plays and saves too, which always helps.”

The pattern continued until the beginning of the third quarter, when the Rams surged ahead with three unanswered goals, making the players literally leap with excitement after each one as the victory became clearer. The Rams continued to look fresh, while the Sun Devils started dragging as the clock counted down.

Two more goals sealed the deal for a gritty, hard fought team victory. Defeating the third ranked team in MCLA Division I on their home field was a huge win for the Rams. “I don’t think we’ll be sneaking up on anyone anymore, and that’s fine,” Coach Smith said after the game. 

“We have things that we have to keep getting better at, but this team is gaining some momentum now.  I hope we can keep it going because this win doesn’t mean much if we don’t keep getting better.  We have a couple more tough games this week and I think it will be a good test for us to see if we can put together a nice little road trip,” Coach Smith said.

The Rams will play the Arizona Wildcats Monday and the Chico State Wildcats Wednesday.
