Montclair HS Boys Lacrosse Coasts Past Caldwell, 11-5

CALDWELL, NJ - Senior Torin Ottaway scored three goals and picked up two assists, helping Montclair to a 11-5 win over Caldwell Monday evening at Caldwell High School.
Montclair, who found themselves in the losing end of several close encounters early in the season (including losses to rivals West Essex and Ridgewood), are now 4-5 after finding some stability to their system.
With the defense finally starting to piece their parts together, Montclair closed off any chances of Caldwell posing any threat to senior goalie Andreas Mazarakis’ net, holding the Chief’s offense to only two goals the entire first half. Mazakaris finished the match with four total saves.
The deadly partnership of Ottawa and fellow senior attack Avery Nesmith, picked apart Caldwell’s defense with early goals coming from both players in the first quarter. In the following quarters, Montclair looked to stabilize their lead, with a series of passes in the opposing half.

The Mounties put a nail on Caldwell’s coffin in the last quarter when Ottawa set up junior Will Wrede for a beautifully placed shot in the left corner. From that point on, Montclair played a safe game, waiting for the referee’s final whistle.
Nesmith and Wrede finished the game scoring three goals apiece, while junior Shane Duffy and senior Peter Schiffenhaus each added one goal.
“I’m really proud of the boys and what they have been doing all season long” said Montclair Coach Brian O’Rourke. “They really deserve to feel good after this win”.
Montclair hopes to extend their winning streak to four games when they face Kinnelon at Kinnelon High School Wednesday at 4:30PM.
