Wave beats Manhasset 12-8
Logan McGovern scored four goals and Kevin Lindley had a hat trick in Darien’s 12-8 win over Manhasset in the annual Battle of the Sound at Long Island on Saturday.
Darien is four-year-straight champs over Manhasset in the annual match that has happened since 1996.
"We had a three-goal lead, and they chipped it down to one, and we got it back up to three, and they got it down to two: it was a good battle," said Darien coach Jeff Brameier. "It always is. Looking back at the history of it, I don't think we've had any games that were decided by more than four goals."
Darien led all the way and was up 6-2 at the half.
McGovern had five points, Lindley four, Finlay Collins and Brian Minicus two goals each, Matt Meyjes one goal and Riley Stewart two assists.
Brameier noted that the defense was led by All-American goalie Ryan Cornell (11 saves) and the stellar play of Arden Cohen, Quinn Fay, Jake Bieler, Nic Percarpio, Jack Joyce, Blake Sommi and Stewart.
“Tanner Strub had a great day at the face-off x going 15-25,” Brameier said. "We won the battle of the face-offs for the most part. And that was crucial."
The Wave is 5-0.
Manhasset drops to 6-2.
"It's a testament to why we play that team," said Brameier. "It's always a challenge. It's good lacrosse."
