Lacrosse Bests Medaille
After last week’s loss to Keuka College, the Yeomen needed to bounce back. They did exactly that with an 8-5 victory over the Mavericks of Medaille College. Junior attackman Bryan Harfenist put on a show with two goals, giving Oberlin its second win of the season.
The attackers led the way, putting pressure on the opposing defense. Senior attackman Will Jaffee and junior Ian Dias each had a pair of goals for Oberlin. Jaffee leads the team with 12 goals in ten games, including five goals in three games. Senior attackman David Schlussman and senior Andrew Crosby each made two assists, while first-year Jesse Kane got into the action by recording an assist of his own.
As a team we were able to distribute well,” said Jaffee. “Our attackers did what they had to do and everyone contributed to the win.”
Coach Walz believes that this squad has some winnable games coming up, and that there will be an even better Yeomen team.
“We really controlled the tempo of the game,” said Head Coach Walz. “I was impressed with the work that we did going into the game. This is a great jumping off point for us.”
This week the Yeomen take on Shenandoah College on Saturday at 1 p.m. One year ago, Oberlin lost to Shenandoah by one goal, and two years ago the Yeomen beat them by one, so Saturday should be a fight.
Oberlin’s overall record is 2-7, 0-3 in the conference. The Yeomen play
four of their next five games at home, which are against Wittenberg, Wooster
