Seneca Valley LAX Notches First Win
Coming off a 1-11 season last year, Seneca Valley’s lacrosse team and their new head coach Jeremy Benson know that things will be better this year. The question is how much better. “I know that I am not coaching a 1-11 team this year,” said Coach Benson. “We have a lot of talented hard working athletes. We are looking forward to surprising the county.”
With last night’s 10-5 victory over Gaithersburg, the Screaming Eagles equaled last season’s wins, with nine games remaining in the season. Seneca Valley had five players with score, four had multiple goals.
Seneca got the scoring early as senior Adrian Saravia scored just seconds into the game. Seneca would extend the lead on a shot by senior Ian Sorter. Gaithersburg would get one goal in the first and Seneca would lead 2-1 at the end of the first quarter.
Ian Sorter would get the second of his three goals in the game, early in the second quarter, but the Trojans would bounce back getting four goals to take a 5-3 lead with 4:43 remaining in the half. Seneca would get two more goals in the second period, one from senior Andrew Magnuson and one from junior Scott Cunningham and the game would be tied 5-5 at halftime.
Seneca came out and controlled the game for much of the third quarter, moving the ball around the Gaithersburg goal and pinning the Trojans in their zone. Ian Sorter started the scoring early in the third. Senior midfielder Alec Delgadillo would add two more goals in the third quarter and Seneca Valley took a three goal lead into the final peri
