Using the momentum from the first set, the Wildcats took the second 15-12. \The girls starting hanging their heads a bit after the first two games but Gouverneur .Wasn't\as \strong a team as we thought they ' would be,\ said Arcadi. Returnirtg to their earlier frame of mind, the Raiders rallied to take the next three sets 15-10, 15-8 and 15-10.

Anas- tasia Cook and Stephanie % Cook stepped into the spotlight in the fourth set serving.for'five straight points apiece. Sophomore vKym Littlejohn took over in the final set serving seven' in a row. Arcadi cited Littlejohn and team-, mate Kathy Prashaw for their de- fensive efforts. \Every time Gouverneur sent the ball over the'net they vfere there to ~put it up into the air,\ said AfcadiT\ \They really played 'sjrperb defense.\ ' r Prashaw had a good night from the serving line as Well with a total •^of 19 winners while Littlejohn fin-, ished the night having served for 14 points. \This game should be a big mor- ale booster for us,\ said Arcadi. \They did everything just the way they were supposed to.\ The Raiders take_ to the floor again truT^venihg m Tupper Lake to face the league-leading-Lumber- jacks. The next game after that is this coming Monday at home against Potsdam. Raider Laxmen Suffer Lapse On Offense Last Tuesday, the Massena Cen- tral varsity lacrosse, team had one of its best defensive efforts of the season. \\Unfortunately for the Raiders, \the offense wasn't equal to the take and the end result was a 5-3 loss to General Brown. \If you hold a team to five goals in lacrosse you should win then game,\ said coach Jeff Slack. \Our; offense just* didn't have any teeth.- -We had a lot of chances but didn't.'- _inish_of£ihe-_playJ \Defensively we didn't do a bad job at \all he added. Tony Trombino and Vaughn Al- drich each netted a^oal and as- sisted gn another to lead the Raid- ers attack with Jeff Bigelow rietting the other goal. Andy Danboise put; in a strong game in net for Mas-- senet' making 20 saves. \I thought Andy had his best out- ing of the year,\- said Slack. \In all General Brown had 31 shots at the - goal and 25^of them-were right on_ target. He^made a lot of good- saves.\ srt* • The Raiders next game is today at home against St. Lawrence Cen- tral beginning at 4 p.m; Lacrosse Game Continued From Page 12 ing\ Hayes cited the work of senior Derek Bellinger, especially as the face-off man. \He did a great job with the face offs,\ said Hayes. \He also did a good job with the close defense.\ White said one of the Shamrocks' strategies heading into the contest was \solving the riddle of Bellinger.\ \It wasn't until the setond .half that we started to see somemiccess facing off against him,\ he said. White also credited the team's defense. \Pete LaFrance, Cory Cunning- ham and Louis Lazore all did a good job of denying St. Lawrence with those good scoring opportuni- ties,\ he added.
