Ireland victorious on St. Patrick's Day

Syracuse, NY – Head Coach Jamie Ireland and the Herkimer men's lacrosse team enjoyed a 13-8 win over the Cayuga Spartans on Sunday afternoon. The Generals appeared to be the stronger side, but Herkimer led by only two goals, 6-4, at halftime. The visitors then took charge and crafted a 10-5 lead in the third quarter.

It was a good day for lacrosse, but conditions were somewhat challenging. The beautiful morning turned gray and windy for the noontime start. Temperatures hovered around the freezing point, and the strong wind blew west to east down the field, which is aligned west-east. Field conditions were very good. Cayuga plays its home games at Corcoran High School, in the southwestern hills of Syracuse. The surface is almost identical to that of Herkimer's Wehrum Stadium. The field and its surrounding running track were clear, but snow piles remained just beyond the track.

MLAX 3 17 2013 Jon CooperThe game was less than four minutes old when the Generals drew first blood. Freshman Kamm David had a strong day in the attacking zone. The Generals were controlling play when David took a pass from Berek Martichuski and tallied. The Spartans, however, were ready to play, and four minutes later they cashed in on a power play and tied the game.

Jace Sowden put Herkimer ahead 2-1 later in the quarter, but 22 seconds later Cayuga put a bounced shot into the Herkimer goal.

Tony Karam put Herkimer ahead 3-2 with a couple of minutes left in the quarter. (See photo above.) Martichuski assisted on the play. The Generals had a lead they would not relinquish.

Jon Cooper was in goal for the Generals. Coop showed early on that he was going to have a good day. He stopped shots well – some of them with great saves – and did an excellent job of starting counterattacks, either with a smart pass or by running the ball out himself.

Herkimer took a 4-2 lead when Kamm David scored again, this time with a 10-yard shot from the right, in the 15th minute of play. Further, David opened the second quarter with another tally. 5-2 Herkimer.

Each team scored one more time before the half. Joe Lopopolo got the Generals' sixth goal.

The Generals took full control of the game in the third period. Karam scored again. So did Nicholas Suits and Martichuski. Martichuski's goal was sweet – a quick flick behind his head that beat the Cayuga goalkeeper. Then Suits struck again. It was 10-4 Herkimer, but the Spartans scored on a great shot from 16 yards out. The third period ended 10-5.

Cayuga scored three more goals, but the Generals managed the clock well.

After the game, Coach Ireland had praise for the team. "We made a couple of mental mistakes in the second half, but in all the guys played well today," stated Ireland.

The squad's next game is scheduled for Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. when they are to host Mercyhurst North East. The Generals are also to host Finger Lakes on Thursday.
