Sheaffer’s Six Goals Help Warriors Clip Skyhawks

Babson Park, FL – The Webber International Men’s Lacrosse team hosted the Point University Skyhawks Friday Afternoon. The Warriors hit the ground running from the opening faceoff and took care of the Skyhawks, 22-3. 

With Joshua Cargile resuming his place in the faceoff circle, the Warriors struck quickly, as Christian Tapia took the first shot of the game, burying it in the net for a goal just 40 seconds into the game. A failed clear from the Warriors allowed the Skyhawks an early opportunity to tie it. Houston Finlayson tried to erase the Skyhawk goal, but his shot flew off the post. A turnover by Point set up Jeremiah Loo with a goal off the pass from Connor HerringDillon Ziemba scored soon after, capitalizing on another Point turnover. Starting Goalie Ryan Prylinski picked up his first save of the afternoon, with Carson Ercoli’s ensuing ground ball setting up Nick Sheaffer to score off a pass from Steven Landsman. Sheaffer would find the net twice more in the first quarter, both off of assists from Chase Jackson, as the Warriors headed to the second quarter up 6-1. 

Webber started out the second quarter with their feet on the gas, as Finlayson, Loo, Herring, Sheaffer, and Blake Nelson all took shots that were either saved or went wide. Beau Masters finally found paydirt off an assist from Loo, before Daniel McClure scored soon after. A faceoff violation win for Webber set up Jackson for a goal to make it 9-1 Webber. Another save from Prylinksi caught the Skyhawks off guard, as Ziemba and Tay’Quan Bryan broke through, with Bryan scoring off the assist from Ziemba. Prylinksi’s day would be over after that as Riley Graves would step into the net for the rest of the quarter. Point was able to get a goal right before the half to make the score 10-2. 

Liam Murphy came in as goalie to start the second half. Tapia scored quickly again on a Man-Up opportunity, and Dane Fasano scored soon after off another assist from Jackson. Murphy picked up two saves before Sheaffer scored off an assist from Jackson. A minute later, Loo scored again with a nice pass from Nelson. Murphy picked up another save before Sheaffer scored with an assist from his brother Branden Sheaffer. A penalty on the Warriors gave Point a Man-Up opportunity and they scored, making it 15-3 Webber. Greyson Davidson played excellent defense, causing multiple turnovers and a ground ball pickup set N. Sheaffer for another goal. Adison Hommel was brought into the net next and made his first save off a cross-field shot from Point’s Goalie. Kye McCarron would find the goal right before the period expired, and Webber would head to the final frame up 17-3. 

Ziemba and McCarron both started off the fourth with shots, before Ziemba found the net after a save from Point landed in his stick. Zachary Cordero scored under a minute later to make it 19-3. Hommel made another save in the fourth, and a Point turnover helped B. Sheaffer and the Warriors score again with a great pass from Herring. Hommel picked up one more save before Greyson McQuaig came in to close it. McQuaig picked up a save early before B. Sheaffer scored again off an assist from Sam Shields.
