Two days before meeting LaFayette, the Lakers performed an offensive clinic at Onondaga, steadily taking the Tigers apart in a 21-7 romp.
A first-quarter shutout was nice, but the 4-0 margin grew as the night went on. Cazenovia set a relentless pace, building the margin to 10-2 by halftime and again reaching double digits in the second half.
Sean Cannizzaro, with three goals and four assists, anchored a deep attack where Greacen led with five goals and one assist. Axelson had four goals and Connor Cannizzaro also scored three times, with Sam Lewis adding two goals and two assists and Nardella also finding the net twice. Powell and Donovan got single goals.
And two days after the LaFayette win, the Lakers had one more hurdle to clear before this Tuesday's duel with Skaneateles --and it did so, winning at home over Jordan-Elbridge by a score of 12-4.
Strong starts in each half made the difference, as Cazenovia outscored the Eagles 4-1 in both the first and third periods, which made up for the lulls elsewhere.
Greacen matched J-E by himself with four goals, adding an assist. Axelson and Connor Cannizzaro each scored twice, with Nardella, Chad Dorrance, Sean Cannizzaro and Justin Hoffmann earning single goals and Lewis contributing an assist. Combined, Cross and Ben Romagnoli stopped 12 of the 16 shots they faced.
The Skaneateles game served as, arguably, the biggest home game in Cazenovia's brief lacrosse history, and highlights a week that also features a Thursday-night trip to CBA.
