Generals beat Broome 14-10

Herkimer, NY – The Generals overcame a 5-3 halftime deficit with a seven-goal third quarter, then held off a fourth-quarter Hornet attack to post a 14-10 win over Broome CC on Thursday afternoon. The victory evens HCCC's season record at 2-2.

Playing conditions were good. The early-afternoon cold and wind eased up a bit for the 4:00 p.m. faceoff. The HCCC grounds crew had done an excellent job of preparing the field, which was clear all the way to the soccer sidelines. There was a 30-inch high snow bank between the field fence on the press box side and the soccer stripe, but the snow bank was well out of the way of the lacrosse players.

The score was still 2-0 when Herkimer midfielder William Clark went down with a knee injury and was unable to return to the game. Clark's departure was a sober reminder to HCCC fans of the devastating affect that injuries had on the 2012 team.

Senior Davey Mitchell and freshman Kamm David got Herkimer on the scoreboard late in the quarter with a spectacular goal. Perhaps it was a lacrosse version of basketball's alley-oop. Mitchell attacked from the right side, then tossed a very high pass to David on the left. David leaped high, caught the pass, and scored from up high.

Herkimer, however, could not build on the David-Mitchell performance. Broome stung HCCC for two more goals in the period, one with only 0.3 seconds remaining. The visitors led 4-1. Herkimer goalie Jon Cooper was playing well, but the Hornets were getting through the Generals' defense.

Two minutes later Herkimer got their second goal when Jace Sowden was behind the goal and passed out to Joe Lopopolo. Lopopolo was 15 yards out and fired a rocket into the Broome goal. But Broome soon answered with another tally. Herkimer's Sowden scored late in the half. Nick Suits shot from 20 yards out and Sowden deflected it into the goal. The half ended with Broome ahead 5-3.

Herkimer was a different team in the second half. Two minutes into the half, Sowden put in the first of what would be seven third-quarter goals for the Generals. A minute later Berak Martichuski tied the game 5-5 off a pass from Lopopolo.

Martichuski gave Herkimer the lead from close in with 9:58 left in the quarter. Then David passed to senior attacker Sowden and Sowden scored. Broome scored their only goal of the period, and it was a 7-6 game. Lopopolo carried the ball, made a sweet spin move, and scored from the right side with just over a minute left. Tony Karam scored for the Generals with a great effort. Karam took a pass from David, was knocked down, and sent the ball into Broome's net before hitting the ground. Then Suits tallied with 21 seconds remaining, and Herkimer led 10-6 going into the final quarter.

Herkimer appeared to own the momentum, but not so. Broome played a strong final quarter and scored just 14 seconds into the period. The Hornets scored again a minute later. 10-8. The Generals got needed goals from Suits and Mitchell. Lopopolo scored from 15 yards out. Herkimer led by five, at 13-8, but Broome was not done. The visitors closed the score to 13-10 with two quick goals, and only a great save by Cooper kept the Hornets from scoring again.

Jace Sowden scored an insurance goal with half a minute left. Martichuski gave him a great pass, and Sowden tallied from eight yards out. Herkimer won 14-10.

Head Coach Jamie Ireland allowed himself to smile after the game. "We focused our efforts in the second half," stated Ireland, who added "Coop kept us in the game. He was a wall in the first half."

The 2-2 Generals will play again at noon on Saturday when they make the quick trip to Utica to play Mohawk Valley.
