Closing out another week in lacrosse for the Golden Eagles from Seneca, they would travel to Winslow Township to play their third game of the week. Earlier in the week, Seneca had a tough time against the experience Chiefs’ team from Cherokee. Yesterday, Camden Catholic had an early lead only to watch Kurt Kaiser score twice to record the come from behind victory. Against Winslow Township, Seneca watched a three goal first half advantage slip away. Again it would be Kaiser who snapped the tie late in the fourth quarter to put away Winslow by a 10-9 margin.
Right from the opening minutes of this game, Winslow Township was determined to set the momentum playing in front of their home but sparse crowd. Yesterday, the Eagles had an easy time against Clearview posting double digits on the scoreboard. Colin McNeil’s first of his two goals scored in this game rewarded Winslow with the early lead. Mike Maffei tied this game and then Kaiser scored from in close from the attack area to put Seneca ahead after one quarter. But the second quarter was all Winslow Township as they scored four unanswered goals to take a one goal lead at halftime. Larry Anderson scored twice while Matt Kruszewki scored the first of four and Keenan Anderson recorded the goal that put Winslow ahead.
The defense picked up during the second half as only two goals was scored during the third quarter. They were important scores for Seneca as they would retake the lead on goals by Maffei and Derek Butterfoss. Maffei would score his fourth goal of the game for Seneca during the final quarter, but it would be Kaiser’s goal late in the game and defense preserving the win for Seneca. Keenan Anderson finished the game for Winslow Township with three goals.
