Falls Church Youth Lacrosse: After 6 Games U11 Boys Still Unbeaten

On Saturday, the Falls Church Youth Lacrosse League's U11 Boys traveled to Wakefield High School and defeated a very physical Arlington team, 10 -2, to notch their sixth win, remaining undefeated. The offense was overwhelming behind four goals from Eriksen Johansen, three from Brandon Ward and one apiece from Jackson Cogar, Sean Fitzgerald and Jack Hennessey. The team showed excellent teamwork, as seven of the goals were off of assists, three from Johansen and one each from Myles Cobb, Jacob Litton, Fitzgerald and Hennessey. The team controlled possession of the ball, led by four groundballs by Johansen, Cogar and Fitzgerald.

Also on Saturday, the U13 Boys traveled to Springfield and after spotting them three goals in the first quarter, stormed back to win 5-4. Austin Nooter led the scoring with three goals followed by Sean Cormany with two. The defense stepped up to the challenge behind the cat-like quickness of goalie Keenan Glahn, who stopped numerous close shots. Getting control of the face-off was a problem in the first half, until John Glover took over in the second and won most of his face-offs, which were critical to the team’s victory.

On Sunday, the U11 Girls traveled to Stafford and won 9-3 to improve their record to 3-2. In the first half, Stafford controlled the ball and took a 3-2 lead, although Falls Church had several shots that came close to scoring. Falls Church stormed back in the second half and won the game 9-3. Rae Mondragon led the second-half defense, while goaltenders Maria Torregrosa and Caroline Duffett made some quality saves. Tia Dahl led the scoring with three goals. Also scoring were Samie Boryan, Claire Saunders, Claire Tourkin, Maddie Hof and Caroline Kerrigan.

Also on Sunday, the U13 Girls traveled to Prince William, and while they lost 15-4, they showed great improvement in the second half. Brooke Strong and Haley Zullo performed well in goal in the defeat.

This weekend, the U11 Boys will face their toughest competition as they travel to Fort Hunt to play the other undefeated team in their division. The U13 Boys have two away games at Springfield and then Prince William. The U13 Girls travel to Alexandria, while the U11 Girls will host Alexandria at George Mason High School's Moore Cadillac Stadium.
