Box Wrap: Black Cat, Cobras Black Improve To 2-0

LA Cobras - L.A. Box League

Black Cat won its second game of the young L.A. Box Lacrosse season Saturday, beating Cobras Blue 8-6. Cobras Black also improved to 2-0, beating Shock 13-2.


Here’s a look at the rest of the weekend’s action, with details supplied by the teams’ coaches:

Saturday, Sept. 12
Black Cat 8, Cobras Blue 6
Black Cat is made up of players from Peninsula, with a little help from Rizal Smith and Mikey Booth from Palos Verdes. Black Cat barely got by what is half of a stacked Loyola/Cobras squad. Koby Tseng led the scoring for Black Cat, and Kyle BeachboardEmilio NunziaitKurt Landon, and Rizal Smith all tallied goals. Junior goalie Matt Choi played solid in net for his first time playing at the varsity level.
— Lane Jaffe, Black Cat

Cobras Elite Blue lost a close one to a very good Black Cat team. Sean Smith played excellent, and freshman Cam Bieler filled in nicely in goal. Rookies Henry Hasenberg and Wes Priestleyalso played well. If we can stay out of the penalty box by playing defense with controlled aggression, we can make a championship run.
— Brett Tietjen, Cobras

Leverage 9, Santa Monica 3
Leverage played a good game against Santa Monica. Joey Weinman and Matt Fanelli had very good games, and Tommy Leone had a fantastic night in goal.
— Chris Jewett, Leverage

Cobras Black 13, Shock 2
Cobras Elite Black dominated from the first whistle. Jonathan PartamianCory LundMason O’Hanlon, and Dom Trageser were lighting up the scoreboard. Aiden Hess was automatic at the faceoff X, and when the D did face pressure, Joe Theuer was a wall behind a great defense of Nick MohlerLuke McKenna and Morgan Lewis.
