WHS lacrosse drops matches to DC, CHCA, Braves

The Wilmington High School lacrosse team was defeated by Talawanda 14-2 Monday at Alumni Field.

Conner Mitchell and Bailey McVay scored the Hurricane goals. Payton Hibbard had an assist.

“We spent too much time in the penalty box,” WHS coach Adam Shultz said. “Playing man-down defense doesn’t lead to offense.”

Wilmington, 1-5 on the year, was defeated by Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy on Saturday. Rudy Cresswell scored the goal and Hibbard had an assist.

On Friday, WHS was defeated by Dayton Carroll with Jake Frazier scoring the lone goal.

“We faced two tough opponents in two days,” Shultz said. “Hopefully our athletes can take something away from this challenge.”

The Wilmington JV lacrosse team was defeated by Carroll 4-2 on Friday.

Sam Eastes scored both WHS goals in the second half of the match.
