Hawks Lacrosse Nets 23 at Wells

 The Hilbert College Hawks men’s lacrosse team traveled to Wells College for the first United East Conference game of the season. The only thing faster than the Hawks attack was the wind which was so strong it moved the goals multiple times throughout the game. Hilbert took the win in dominating fashion, 23-10. With the win the Hawks improve to 2-3 (1-0) and the loss sets the Express back to 0-4 (0-1).  

How It Happened: Offense, offense, offense! Joey DiMariaRoland Jimerson, and Connor Salamida sparked the attack with 3-unanswered goals shortly after the opening whistle. DiMaria and Jason Sage netted a goal each sandwiched in between the only two goals Wells tallied in the 1st quarter. DiMaria notched his hat trick in the first quarter putting the Hawks up 6-2. The offensive onslaught was not done yet as Sage scored his second and third goal of the game making it 8-2 in the first. Salamida and DiMaria each scored again before the end of first making it 10-2 after the opening quarter.

Salamida potted his hat trick goal a man up just 13-seconds into the second quarter. Kevin Doyle and Ryan Davis followed with a goal apiece before Wells scored four straight to close out the first half 13-6 in favor of the Hawks.

The Hawks scored 5-unanswered to start the 3rd quarter with goals from DiMaria (x2), Doyle, Jimerson, and Davis making it 18-6 and seemingly putting the game out of reach. The US Navy Veteran, Roland Jimerson, scored his hat trick goal halfway through the 3rd. Davis became the 4th Hawks player with a hat trick in the game to close out the 3rd quarter with Hilbert up 20-7.

The final quarter saw both teams score 3 each. Sage started the scoring in the 4th which was his 3rd and the 5th Hawk with a hat trick. Salamida and Davis each added one more to their daily tally as well. The final score was 23-10 Hilbert. Jack Scherrer made 4 saves in the cage for the Hawks.

What’s Next: The Hawks return home to host United East Conference opponent, La Roche, on Wednesday, March 29th, at 7PM at St Francis High School.
