After having one of its two scheduled games in Jacksonville wiped out by thunderstorms this weekend, Hilton Head High’s boys lacrosse team suffered a 17-11 loss to Creekside (Fla.) on Saturday.
Creekside got out to an early lead, but Will Frith won 28-of-29 faceoffs and collected four goals and an assist to help the Seahawks claw back. Whit Molloy scored a team-high six goals, Enzo Saritelli added a goal, and Max Boyer notched two assists.
Goalie Josh Hiers finished with 14 saves, and Garrison Geoffroy led the defensive effort with six groundballs and three takeaways, but too many miscues were costly to the Seahawks.
“We could not do the fundamental things right,” HHIHS coach Will Callegari said. “They dominated us in groundballs, and we just had too many unforced errors. Creekside is a great team, and they showed us today that we have to do the little things right to come away with a win. It is a good learning experience for us, and I am confident we will be better for it.”
The Seahawks (2-1) travel to May River on Wednesday.
