Harrison "Found A Way To Win", Closes Out On 4-0 Run In Win Over Woodward Academy

Harrison's Cooper Turner (#4) defends Woodward Academy's Ben Grice (#3)

On Tuesday, the Woodward Academy War Eagles boys lacrosse team hosted the Harrison Hoyas in a non-region matchup between two teams both sitting in second in their respective region standings. And while the outcome of Tuesday’s tilt between the two would have no impact on their standings position, with Woodward having won their previous three and Harrison coming off a victory, a victory for either team would help keep momentum down the stretch of the regular season.

With the game underway, the Hoyas would open up the first period with back to back goals by Andrew Marcri, who finished with two goals on the night, and Brett Maguire to give them an early 2-0 lead. However, the War Eagles would respond with three straight goals of their own, as Cade Wildstein, Zacj Weiss and Augie Werthman would each strike the net helping the War Eagles take a 3-2 lead in the second quarter. And although the Hoyas would manage to tie things up twice in the quarter, Woodward would end the period with a 5-4 lead.

The game would remain close throughout most of the third quarter, however, the War Eagles would take the largest lead of the night as they would go up 7-5 to close out the period. Yet, Harrison get into a rhythm in the fourth quarter as they would score four unanswered goals in route to the 9-7 win. “All season long we’ve had these issues, getting into the fourth quarter and fighting out of a hole and we hadn’t been able to do it. Today, it was a super good feeling to actually get out of the hole and come away with a victory,” Harrison head community coach Tony Legge said after Tuesday’s win.

And as the regular season begins to wind down for the Hoyas, Legge stressed that his players will have to continue to “find a way to win” each night, as they look to make a run in the post-season. “We have got to start picking up some wins and putting stuff together like we did tonight. It’s not always pretty, it hasn’t been pretty for us all season long, but like I said, we’ve found ways to lose them before, tonight we found a way to win,” Legge said.
