  • The fifth annual Herb Fitch Lacrosse Senior All-Star Games allowed the top lacrosse players in Section 5 to play in one last high school game before they go off to college. The boys and the girls games were held Saturday at Sahlen’s Stadium.
    The White team won the girls game 13-7 and the White team won the boys game 18-12.
    “It was fun,” said Marcus Whitman goalie Claudia Coleates, who played for the White team. “A lot of my teammates from my old club team were here and they were fun to play with. It was a good competitive level and it was a lot faster, more of the college level because a lot of these girls are going to play elsewhere.”
    The White and Blue teams were tied at four late in the first half, but Rush-Henrietta’s Danielle Maio and Penfield’s Dana Plakosh both scored to give White a 6-4 lead at the break.
    Webster Thomas’ Makensie Schuber and Spencerport’s Brianna Morphet answered with two straight goals for the Blue team. Plakosh, Maio, Victor’s Jessi Thon, Mercy’s Stephanie Dolliver and Webster Thomas’ Elise Bennett responded with five unanswered goals to put the game away for White.
    Mynderse’s Hayley Verkey also scored for White.
    Marcus Whitman’s Danielle O’Donnell, Hilton’s Leia Hayward, Penfield’s Megan Malloy and Mercy’s Mackenzie Swartout each scored one goal for Blue.
    Coleates was the defensive MVP for White and Plakosh was the offensive MVP. Churchville-Chili’s Gina Akel, who scored one goal, was the offensive MVP for Blue and Pittsford goalie Jaclyn Fraum was the defensive MVP.
    “It was really rewarding to top off all the hard work I’ve been doing the last four years,” Plakosh said.
    In the boys game, the White team led 3-1 after the first quarter. Pittsford’s Corey Parke scored twice in the second quarter to help stretch the lead to 10-4 by halftime.
    Blue goalie Blaze Riorden of Fairport ended the third quarter with some excitement as he carried the ball the length of the field and scored a goal to cut White’s lead to 11-6.
    Blue continued to chip into the lead in the fourth quarter and got within three on Greece Lightning attackman Rob Kitchen’s goal. Blue was unable to get any closer. McQuaid goalie Pat Sheridan recorded a goal of his own for the White team before the end of the game.
    Pittsford’s Jack Lauroesch, who scored two goals, was named the offensive MVP for White and Sheridan was the defensive MVP. Penn Yan’s Dylan Yonts, who scored three goals, was the offensive MVP for Blue and Riorden was the defensive MVP.
    “It’s an amazing feeling seeing all the talent out here that Section 5 produces, being part of it and knowing you’re in the top tier of players is just amazing,” Riorden said.
