The OFA Golf Team suffered its first loss of the season, on Wednesday, while the Lady Devils Girls Lacrosse team secured a victory heading toward today’s regular season finale Senior Game against Saranac Lake today at 4:30 p.m.

The Devil golfers fell to Potsdam but can clinch their NAC Division I crown with a win at Malone on Friday.

The Lady Laxers host Saranac Lake today in a preview of a Monday first round game in the Section 10 Tournament which will be played on the Red Storm’s turf.

GOLF

Potsdam closed out its regular season by creating the potential for a three-way split of the 2013 NAC Division I.

Playing the par 36 back nine at the Potsdam Town and Country Club, the Sandstoners knocked off previously undefeated OFA 212-227 to finish at 6-2 heading into the Section 10 Championships slated for May 24-25 at the Massena Country Club.

OFA slips to 6-1 with the loss and will be headed to the Malone Country Club on Friday to take on Malone (5-2) in the regular season finale for both squads.

Konnor Bigwarfe and Dan Cruikshank anchored the Sandstoners with rounds of 40. Conor Hannan and Dylan each shot 43 for OFA while Brandon Mullin had a 44, Jed McRoberts a 46 and Alec Manke a 51. Matt Piercey shot a non-scoring 54.

Aidon Clothier carded a 42 for Potsdam followed by Ryan McDonald and Dan Stone with 45’s while Alex Sloan posted a non-scoring 58.

GIRLS LACROSSE

The OFA Girls Lacrosse team played the first half without two of its top defenders in Wednesday’s trip to Salmon River.

Zendel Corwell missed the contest where the Lady Devils (5-6) scored a 19-12 victory and Courtney Sherwin arrived at halftime after taking an exam.

According to Coach Lauren Morley their absence was felt at both ends of the field.

“I think the girls learned how really important Zendel (Cordwell) and Courtney (Sherwin) are to our team,” said Morley.

“We really missed them and when Courtney got into the game in the second half we just took off scoring four straight goals to pull away from a 10-8 lead. We just regrouped, starting making great cuts and Kaitlin Sheppard had a super game with six assists. Salmon River played very aggressively and very well”

Sheppard finished with four goals and six assists while Mackenzie Bresett collected three goals and three assists and Mackenzie Comeau tallied three goals.

Nikki Holmes, Danielle Guimond (1 assist), Sky Hoover and Nicole Hammond each scored twice to back Marissa Foster’s seven saves in goal.

Krya Thompson scored five goals for the Shamrocks (0-11) and Tewashorake Barnes and Victoria Thompson each netted three while Kiera Pyke turned aside nine shots working the Salmon River crease.
