FREMONT, Neb. (April 6, 2023) – The Webber International University men’s lacrosse team kicked off their three-game road trip with a win against Midland University on Wednesday. The Warriors (12-1 overall) offense did not let the cold weather stop them en route to a 19-2 victory.
The opening quarter was quiet for the first ten minutes until Houston Finlayson hit Jeremiah Loo who netted the first goal of the game. Chase Jackson then put two points on the board with passes from Cade McCarron and Blake Nelson respectively. Loo finished off the first quarter with a man-up goal just 56 seconds before the buzzer.
Midland (2-7) was held scoreless until over a minute into the second quarter. However, that would be the only goal allowed by Webber’s defense in the quarter. The Warriors tallied five goals in total for the second quarter including two man-up goals by Jackson and McCarron.
Coming out of halftime with a 9-1 lead, Nelson netted the first goal of the third quarter. Midland was once again held scoreless this quarter, but the Warriors offense put four more points on the board. Out of those four, Nicholas Cordero recorded his first goal of the game and Steven Landsman scored the first goal of his collegiate career.
N. Cordero started off the last quarter of the game with a goal off an assist by Connor Herring. Finlayson put up another point before Midland scored their final goal of the game. Dane Fasano struck back about a minute later with a man-down goal, before Nick Sheaffer and Sam Shields ended the match with a goal each and a score of 19-2.
The Warrior offense outshot Midland 47-17 with Jackson leading the way as he tallied four goals and four assists for a total of eight points. Loo followed close behind with four goals and three assists. Finlayson, N. Cordero, and Nelson all added two goals and one assist each as well.
Cameron Paleski led Webber’s defense with five ground balls and four caused turnovers while Austin Schepers ended with four ground balls and three caused turnovers. Alex Cordero spent three quarters in the cage with seven saves and one goal allowed with Riley Graves finishing the last 15 minutes in net with three saves and one goal allowed.
