F-M boys lacrosse handles Liverpool

Week by week, and win by win, the Fayetteville-Manlius boys lacrosse team continues to charge toward the top.

Already with the no. 7 state Class A ranking, the Hornets proved that worth again Wednesday night in a 15-9 victory over Liverpool.

The Warriors came in with a 7-2 record, but all of its possible confidence was shattered by the time the first quarter was done.

Winning the face-offs, converting on attacks and playing note-perfect defense, F-M was up 5-0 by the time they reached the second period, and the margin kept on growing until it reached 13-5 at the end of the third period.

Ari Waffle and Matt Taylor both finished with five goals, as Waffle added two assists and Mike O'Neil had his own three-goal hat trick.

Often, the passes came from Justin DePalma, who finished with five assists. Jim Dittmer joined DePalma in the one-goal column, with Ron Caputo, Mike Poppleton and Max Cooper earning assists. Stefan Basile had eight saves.
