Franklin Lacrosse Opens Season With Win

April 22, 2012

The Franklin Lacrosse Club opened its second season of competition Wednesday night against the visiting Wauwatosa Lacrosse Club and came out with a convincing 18 - 0 victory. Franklin outshot the first year Wauwatosa squad 29 - 7 over four periods of play.

Head coach Eric Fernandes while pleased with the win was more focused on the improvement that a number of second year players made since last year.

" We had a guy last year - Chad Frey who did not score a goal for us all of last year but tonight he comes out, works hard and scores 4 goals and also plays good hard defense. This is the type of improvement we want our program and players to make as we move into Classic Eight Conference play".

Senior goalie Brennan Kastner and freshman Noah Bachofen combined for the shutout.Other players scoring goals in the win were Brian Kennedy [2], Michael Cuske [2], Mikey Coakley [2], Alec Jakubowski , Matt Schutte [2], Jake Fernandes [2] and Joseph Jensen [2].

Franklins' next game is Monday April 23 at Kettle Moraine.
