Pacers roll to win over North Oldham


Gazette Staff



Sam Lagando scored the first of his game-high four goals three minutes into the game, giving the Delaware Hayes boys lacrosse team an early 1-0 lead it parlayed into a lopsided 18-3 win over visiting North Oldham Friday night.

Ryan Smudz scored off a feed from Brystin Coldiron to make it 2-0 less than two minutes later, Lagando scored an unassisted goal a minute later and Blake Eiland made it 4-0 off a feed from Coldiron with 5:42 left in the opening quarter.

North Oldham got on the board with just under three minutes left in the first, slicing its deficit to three, but Hayes, which bumped its record to 6-2 with the win, dominated the rest of the way.

Eiland and Coldiron finished with two goals and three assists apiece, Smudz had two goals and an assist and Hunter Piroska found the back of the net twice to lead the Pacers.
