CHAPPAQUA, N.Y.— Yorktown’s boys lacrosse squad displayed a dominant effort in its 19-7 victory against host Horace Greeley on April 27.

“We just came off a loss to Chaminade. Even though we lost we still played well so everyone knew that we had to come out and play the same way against Greeley,” Yorktown senior captain Kyle Casey said.

The Huskers were led to the win against the Quakers by Jamison Embury (3G, 2A), Shane Dahlke (2G, 3A), Hunter Embury (4G) and Casey (1G, 3A).

“We were able to play well against them because we weren’t playing selfish lacrosse,” Casey said. “Everyone was looking for the next pass and that made it easy for us to make our shots from up close.”

Yorktown (6-3) dominated the faceoffs, spurred on by Brendan Williams (won 9 of 12 faceoffs), Hunter Embury (won 8 of 10 faceoffs) and Keegan Doller (won 5 of 5 faceoffs).

“That was the first time Keegan’s done faceoffs for us, and he was doing very well,” Casey said. “Every day our faceoff kids spend about 15-20 minutes doing faceoffs, so the work they put in goes straight into the game.”

Justin Cavallo (2G), Tyler Cunnington (2G), Dom Cioffi (1G, 1A), Matt Concialdi (1G), Reese Andrews (1G), Michael Broder (1G), Richard Giannasca (1G), Steven Veteri (2A), Justin Comerford (1A), Doller (1A) and Brett Makar (1A) also contributed to the Huskers’ scoring at Greeley.

Lakeland/Panas fell to visiting Rye 10-3 on April 25, with Reagan Fallo (1G), Sean Makar (1G), Tim Fallo (1G), Drew Thompson (1A) and Kevin Dyckman (5 saves) producing for the Rebels.

The Rebels rebounded two days later with a 9-7 victory at Pelham.

“We got completely outplayed and outcompeted against Rye so today was a business trip,” said Makar, a senior captain. “No one likes losing, especially by a large amount and it was key to getting a win. Taking away their strengths and working as a team got us the win.”

Makar (2G, 1A), Griffin Shiland (2G), Sean Laurinaitis (2G), Tim Fallo (1G), Thompson (1G), Matt Hodges (1G) and Matt Kness (1A) made up the Rebels’ balanced attack.

“The midfield stepped up big time to help us get this win,” Makar said. “We were able to spread the ball around and get everyone on the scoreboard.”

Doing a good job containing Pelham on the other end of the field was Dyckman, who made nine big saves.

“He had a good day of practice yesterday and is back to full health and was able to bring that momentum from practice into the game,” Makar said.

Lakeland/Panas (9-1) finished the week with a resounding 19-3 victory against visiting Brewster on April 29.

Makar (8G, 3A), Tim Fallo (1G, 5A), Reagan Fallo (3G, 1A), Thompson (2G), Laurinaitis (2G), T.J. Bryan (2G, 18 face-offs won), Shiland (1G), Dylan Meaney (1A) and Hodges (1A) all produced offensively.
