Gillen leads Men's Lax over Wekiva
3/19/2013 12:15:00 AM

Keeping with the recurring theme of streaks, how about Men's Lacrosse taking down Wekiva, 16-8, for their fourth consecutive victory and sixth in seven games! DP (8-2) broke open a close game in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Mustangs, 5-1, down the stretch but it was tight in the early going. Wekiva would knot things up 1-1 in the opening quarter but the Panthers bit back when Jake Gillen took the faceoff, got it to Nick Forward who then found Ian Decker for the go-ahead goal. The Mustangs responded with another equalizer but Gillen was the catalyst again, winning the faceoff, moving it up to Brett Forward who dished it to Nick Forward for the score...all in eight seconds. Up 3-2, Doug Essig doubled the lead off a Nick Forward assist to take a 4-2 lead into the second quarter. After Wekiva halved a four goal advantage in the third, Doug Essig and Brett Forward assisted on each other's goals to give DP an 11-7 lead into the final quarter of play. Statistically, Brett Forward led all comers with six goals and four assists, Ian Decker registered four goals and assisted on two more, Nick Forward finished with two goals and four assists, Doug Essig closed out the night with two goals and an assist and Austin Crocker picked up a solo goal. Have to hand it to Jake Gillen, who had a monster night winning 13 faceoffs, scooping up 11 groundballs and adding a solo score as well. The Panthers will have little time to relish the win as they take on West Orange tonight.
