Depetres leads Cadets

By on May 14, 2018

Hilton outscored Spencerport 5-2 in the second half on their way to an 11-5 victory in boys lacrosse.

The Rangers jumped out to a 1-0 lead four-plus minutes into the contest as senior Jonathan Agnes fed classmate Mark Schnauber to the right side of the net.

Hilton senior Jordan DePetres tied it 1:05 later coming out from behind the net after the Cadets killed off a one-minute penalty and took the lead for good as Zachary Mitrano bull rushed the net at 7:33 of the first.

DePetres netted his second goal on a bounce shot after a pass from sophomore Austin Holley to make it 3-1 Hilton, but the Rangers countered 16 seconds later as senior Owen VanWie won the draw and took it all the way himself for the goal.

It took just ten more seconds for Hilton to regain their two-goal advantage as junior Shawn Doran returned the favor in winning the draw and scoring to end the first quarter.

Cadets sophomore Ben Mitrano scored two consecutive goals—the second on a sidestep move around the defense—less than five minutes apart in the second quarter to extend the lead to 6-2, but the Rangers scored the final goal of the first half as Schnauber found the back of the net after an assist from Zach Edwards.

Ben Mitrano found Hilton junior Justin Mosher all alone in front of the net on a missed defensive assignment just nine seconds into the second half.

The Rangers closed to within three as VanWie found Edwards for the goal, but the Cadets scored the next four consecutive goals to put the game of reach.

DePetres completed his hat trick while getting knocked down at 6:54 of the third quarter; junior Tyler Hacker raced down the right wing and found the lower left corner to open the fourth quarter scoring and DePetres followed with his fourth of the contest again coming out from behind the net at 5:19. And senior Jason Spencer scored on a rebound to extend the Hilton lead to 11-4.

Spencerport junior Riley Schmeer completed the scoring at 9:34.

Freshman goalie Adam Birkbeck made 12 saves for the 6-5 Rangers while Hilton junior Jason Kelsey stopped seven shots.
