The Freedom Lacrosse Team picked up a solid win on the road versus Colonial High School on Tuesday night by a final score of 18-2. It was a team effort for the Patriots who saw some of their young student-athletes carry the load on both ends of the field and lead their team to the win.
Senior Brennan Allred led the team with 4 goals in the victory, Seniors Nate Marcelin and Udula Fernando added in 3 goals each. Timmy Walden, Cam’Ron Johnson, MJ Tehani, Cameron Dyer, Landis Surber, Jonathan DeJesus, and Evan Colletta each added a goal.
Senior Ricky “Short Stick Rick” Gautam, a career Defensive player known to most as Ray Gautam, traded in his long pole for a short stick, and delivered his first – and likely only – career goal for the Patriots.
Junior Goalkeeper John “Blue” Kaalstad stepped in front of the cage, and put a strong effort allowing only 2 goals with 4 clean saves to help slow down the Grenadier offense.
Freedom will be on the road Thursday as they travel to Sebastian River for a match up against the Sharks before heading into the break; Game time is set for 6:30pm.
