HARRISON, N.Y.— The pressure was on in overtime as Mahopac’s boys lacrosse team looked to pull off a victory over host Harrison.

George Weiss delivered for the Indians as he scored with 2:30 left to propel the Indians to a 13-12 victory on April 25.

The senior midfielder finished with four goals and two assists to lead the Indian attack. Jack McDonald added three goals.

“It was great to see us play a complete game,” Mahopac co-coach Sean Mohammed said. “Harrison is a good team and they pushed us. We have known that we are a good team but we are a young team. When facing a difficult opponent our motto has been, ‘Keep it close.’ It says a lot about the toughness of our team. Keeping it close gave us an edge over Harrison and really speaks to the grind-it-out attitude we play with.”

Michael Argila continued his breakout campaign in goal with 20 saves.

Mahopac pulled off another tight win when it defeated host Wappingers 7-5 on April 27.

Andrew Evans won 13 out of 16 faceoffs and tallied two goals and an assist. Mark Carey and Tommy Elliott added one goal and one assist each, while Argila made 15 saves.

“The win over Harrison really helped us going into Wappingers,” Mohammed said. “Winning faceoffs and valuing the ball on offense were major factors against Wappingers. Andrew Evans really sets himself apart from other teams when it comes to any critical possession.”

The Indians (4-5) gained some confidence with the two victories. They hosted Carmel on May 3 and travel to Scarsdale for a 3 p.m. game on May 6.

“We have known what type of team we are,” Mohammed said. “Getting two wins really took some pressure off these guys.”
