Going into Saturday March 16, the Antioch Sequoits and Deerfield Warriors had already played two games in the Ela-Vernon tournament both winning once and losing once up to that point. 

The Sequoits Lacrosse team played tournament champion Glenbrook North High School on Thursday, resulting in the Sequoits defeat.  Moving into Saturday, the Sequoits were set to face Stevenson High School, resulting in a well-deserved 10 to five win for the Sequoits.

The game started with a Deerfield goal to give them an early one nothing lead which was quickly matched by the Sequoits. The Deerfield Warriors were able to capitalize on quite a few fastbreak and Man-Up opportunities being able to make the score to six two, with Deerfield leading at halftime. 

The Sequoits’ halftime conversation can be quickly summarized as needing to take the chances to score and believe that they can win.

With those small but meaningful words, the Sequoits were able to rally back into a position to win. Taking over the game on the offensive side were two Sequoit offensive midfielders: senior, Ryan Swanson and Junior, Quinn Pluccienik. On the defensive side of the ball, senior goalie Carter Gras was keeping Deerfield’s scoring restricted.

Swanson was able to win nearly every face-off he took in the second half which led to a third-quarter run of five Antioch goals to Deerfield’s two. As well as Pluccienik being able to put one goal in himself and assist multiple others during the scoring run.

Still down eight to seven, the Sequoits felt they were in a better position to take the game from the Deerfield Warriors.

Heading into the fourth quarter, the Sequoits were able to quickly tie the game. Both teams were able to squeeze one more goal to tie the game at nine. 

With limited time before overtime, Antioch’s long stick midfielder Dominick Cabuyadao recovered a poorly thrown pass by the Warriors, and was able to take the ball down field to score what would become the game-winner and his first varsity lacrosse goal.

Ryan Swanson was able to win the final face-off of the game which allowed the Sequoits to hold the ball until the clock reached 2.8 seconds left, after a Deerfield defender forced the ball out of the Sequoits’ possession. 

With one final heave of the ball the Deerfield Attackman was able to secure the 50 yard pass from his teammate but not in time to get a shot off. The Sequoits were able to win the game in dramatic fashion 10 to nine.
