CBA lacrosse sides shine on home turf

Boys win twice; girls return with rout of Homer

Radziewicz, with seven assists to go with his pair of goals, served as the catalyst. Sam Martin stepped up, too, with a career-best five goals and one assist. Zazzara, Romagnoli and Zerillo each scored three times, with Zazzara adding a pair of assists. Lincoln McGarrity contributed a pair of goals as Gait, Jeschke, Alex Brunner and Andre Dowdell had single goals.

And right after the thriller with LaFayette, the Brothers had a much easier time in Friday’s game against Onondaga, cruising past the Tigers 20-6.

Jeschke continued to surge, putting up a team-best five goals. Zazzara had four goals and one assist, with Radziewicz contributing three goals and three assists. Romagnoli scored twice and added a pair of assists as Brunner and Joe Kelley each got one goal and one assist. Sam Martin had the other goal.

On the same night that the boys Brothers outlasted LaFayette, the CBA girls side returned to action following a two-week hiatus, and showed its eagerness to get started again in a first-half blitz on Homer that led to a 19-4 victory over the Trojans.

Instead of possible rust from the long layoff, the Brothers instead jumped on Homer, amassing a 14-1 lead by the time they reached the half. More encouraging was the fact that 12 different players had notched a goal by game’s end.

Marisa Romeo still led the way, with four goals and two assists. Taylor Poplawski, Rachel Vercillo and Rachel Perla each finished with two goals and one assist, with Emily Ehle also scoring twice.

Olivia Pitonzo, Evie Lopoo, Katie Anderson and Hannah Werner all had matching totals of one goal and one assist, with Lilly Hunt, Adriana Fess and Maddie Cook scoring, too. Hailey Dobbins and Lexi Luthringer got credit for assists.

But when the Brothers took a trip to the Washington, D.C. area to face St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes on Saturday, it got tripped up in a 19-8 defeat to a team ranked in the nation’s top 10, according to laxpower.com. Romeo had five goals and one assist, while Poplawski scored three times and Ehle got a single goal.
