High school extra: Lacrosse teams tough it out in rain

Laxers tough it out

Once again rain wiped out virtually all of the more than 70 high school baseball and softball games scheduled Wednesday in Western New York. So, boys and girls lacrosse athletes, who play unless the field is flooded, had the scholastic scene pretty much to themselves again.

Niagara-Wheatfield (6-3) scored in double-figures for the third game in a row with an 18-4 victory over winless Williamsville South. Seth Ferguson led the Falcons with four goals and two assists. Ryan Kouch (3-3) also had a six-point day, while Evan Printup scored three times.

N-W has scored 49 goals in three wins since a 6-4 loss at West Seneca East.

West Seneca East (4-5, 4-2 Class B), meanwhile, went on the road and lost to Williamsville East, 14-6.

It was the seventh straight win for the Flames (7-2), who have lost only to Nichols and St. Joe’s of the Monsignor Martin Association.

Senior Hudson Weil led Williamsville East with six goals and an assist. Colin Greenway had three goals and a pair of assists, and Jonathan Mays had three goals and an assist.

First loss for Eagles

The Lake Shore girls lacrosse team took a 6-0 record to the artificial turf at Amherst Wednesday, but the Eagles took a 13-7 loss at the hands of the Tigers.

Angelina Simon scored three times and had two assists, Catherine Yoder had a pair of goals and two assists, and Grace Lawson tallied three times for Amherst (7-3, 3-0), which took over first place in the Section VI Class C standings.
