High Schools: Wilson rallies to top Lew-Port in lacrosse

Niagara Gazette — Zack Russell scored three goals and added three assists and Justin Westmoreland scored five goals for the Wilson Lakemen (2-4) boys lacrosse team in their 11-9 victory over the Lew-Port Lancers on Friday.

It was a dramatic finish for the Lakemen, as the team saw a five-goal lead slip away, yet was able to pull away with their first league win of the season.

“It all came down to hard work and character,” head coach Chris Braley said. “That win right there showed that we’ve got a lot of both qualities in our locker room.”

Braley said while the team may not be the most talented in the area, they will make up for it by doing well in the finer points of the game.

“There’s some things in our game that could use some fine-tuning – namely winning faceoffs – but as long as we keep doing the little things well, we’ll be fine,” Braley said. “We’re not a highly-skilled team, but we can do the little things well. And when we do those things well, we’ll have a chance to win every game.”
