Scholars Academy Students Go To Adelphi
The 5th and 6th grade boys and girls of the PS 105 and PS 114 Scholars Academy were cordiallyinvited by Mr. Perry Willis, Assistant Principal of the Scholars Academy and the generosity of the staff and team of Adelphi University invited to attend the last game of the season for the men’s lacrosse team. All who attended had a great time, even though Mr. Willis’s alma mater wasn’t successful against the Panthers of C.W. Post.
The Adelphi men’s lacrosse team was down early, trailing 8-1 after one quarter of action, but recovered to play the Pioneers even the rest of the way before falling 19-11. With the loss the Panthers end the regular season with a mark of 4-6 overall and 2-3 in conference play, while C.W. Post improves to 9-4 and 4-1 in the NYCAC.
The fourth ranked Pioneers got three goals from both Jeremy Jablonski (Mastic, N.Y.) and Ralph Carino (Huntington, N.Y.) to stun Adelphi in the first quarter and jump out to an 8-1 lead. Adelphi responded with back-to-back goals from Matt Price (Mel-bourne, Australia) and Wes Green (Adelaide, Australia).
The Panthers opened up the scoring in the third just 15 seconds in the quarter when Green scored off of a feed from Greg Kalberer (Holbrook, N.Y.). But C.W. Post responded again with three goals to make it a 15-5 game.
The fourth quarter was played much like the previous two, but the Panthers kept attacking the Pioneer goal and it paid off as Adelphi scored three late goals to pull within 19-11, but time expired on the Panther comeback. Green led the Panthers with seven points on five goals and two assists, while Trent Machner (Melrose Park, Australia) made eight saves in the loss.
