Horace Greeley woke a sleeping dragon in the opening moments of its lacrosse game against RHS on Tuesday.

 

Rye scored nine unanswered goals, and not until the waning minutes of the last quarter did the Greeley offense produce two more goals in a futile attempt to reclaim their long lost momentum. The contest ended with a Garnet 9-3 victory.

 

The Garnet squad truly came into its own and began playing as a fluid unit on both sides of the ball.

 

The key to any lacrosse contest is maintaining ball control, minimizing turnovers, and airtight defense. Until the Greeley match, Rye displayed each of these qualities to varying degrees earlier in the season. This week, the boys’ team wove all of these facets together. The result was a victory over a key opponent in league play, and the added momentum.

 

This week, RHS had games scheduled against Fox Lane and Saturday at 3:30 p.m. to make up a Mayor’s Cup showdown against Rye Country Day at home.

 

After Wednesday’s game, the entire Rye bench was glowing.

 

Rye goalie Peter White, whose goaltending was a priceless asset in the win, credited the whole team for the victory, “Greeley came out with a quick score and took us by surprise,” White said.

 

“But from then on you could feel the defense tighten up and they only let through the shots I wanted to see,’’ White said. “As a team we stepped up and that’s how we blew them out.”

 

Attackman Cal Hynson humbly shared credit after his two-goal performance. “We really moved the ball well as a team,” Hynson said. “Our stick skills were up, and Pete (White) had the best game of all.”
