NEWARK – The Wilmington High School lacrosse team split matches Saturday, losing to Johnstown Monroe 6-1 and defeating host Newark 6-3.
Against Johnstown Monroe, Jake Frazier scored the WHS goal with an assist to Sam Eastes.
“We dug ourselves a deep hole in the first half,” WHS coach Adam Shultz said. “We started to challenge the ground balls in the second half.”
In the second game, Conner Mitchell had a three-goal hat trick. Logan Frazier, Jake Frazier and Bricen Cook also scored for the Hurricane.
“We have to start spending more time man-up than man-down,” Shultz said. “Our man-down defense did an outstanding job preventing Newark from scoring. I was pleased to see some of our younger players step up during these two games.”
Wilmington will host Chaminade-Julienne 6:30 p.m. Monday at Alumni Field.
