Boys lacrosse Wildcats head into tough homestretch

WG turns back Corcoran with fast start, tough defense

Patient on its attack, the Wildcats did enough to put away the game in the fourth quarter, Procopio earning his fourth goal of the night with 9:26 left and Nick Cunningham scoring with 3:04 to play.

In the lone home game in this closing stretch, WG would entertain 10-3 Cicero-North Syracuse, who was reeling from a 16-4 romp at the hands of Fayetteville-Manlius two nights earlier.

And there was no way that the Wildcats were going to taste defeat in front of its home crowd on Senior Night, as it methodically worked its way to an 11-5 victory over the Northstars.

Even when WG’s defense struggled in the early going, the offense responded with a flurry of goals to take a 5-3 lead. And from there, it gradually pulled way, getting a 7-4 lead by halftime and watching as C-NS only managed a single goal in the last two periods against Koziol, who again finished with 12 saves.

Brown scored three times, adding two assists. Procopio also had a three-goal hat trick, while Ryan McDonald got a pair of goals. Cunningham had a goal and two assists, with Milne and Howes adding goals. Mike Geremia and Will Northrop also earned assists.

And this set up the latest showdown between WG and Fayetteville-Manlius, set for Monday night, with a trip to Auburn also set for Wednesday before the sectional tournament gets underway.
