When Cold Spring Harbor lacrosse plays Manhasset, it is always a game to watch. On Wednesday, April 4th Cold Spring Harbor (4-2) went to Manhasset (3-1) and Manhasset came away with a respectable 8-5 victory under their belt.
As the sun was coming down Wednesday night and the field’s lights became bright, one of the most unusual things happened. Evan Molloy came out of the goal. He was running for a purpose when he crossed midfield. Molloy ran up to about the 40-yard line of the opposing defense and fired a shot on target. The goal was at the 10:11 mark of the game and was a great way to start the scoring off for Manhasset.
Molloy also made nine great saves that night. As Molloy was making the saves, Bobby Duvnjak and the defense were making key stops. Coach Cherry was asking a tough task for Duvnjak to contain Cold Spring Harbor’s Sean Doyle who came into the game with 15 goals already. This was not a problem for Duvnjak as he completely shut Doyle down, not allowing him to do anything.
As Duvnjak and Molloy were playing defense, Quinn Moroney was playing solid offense. As the offense started rolling, Moroney was distributing and scoring. Moroney lead the attack with 3 goals and 2 assists. The offense was scoring at ease and Ryan Matthews, Patrick Fahey, Tommy Wenk, and Bobby Young all tacked in one goal each.
Manhasset ended up winning 8-5 with stellar defense, a great offensive attack, and good goal keeping.
