Friday afternoon’s game at Beckman was an intriguing matchup between two lacrosse teams that entered the season with high hopes but were having trouble find traction so far. Although Beckman and Huntington Beach both entered the season with a Top 10 ranking, both teams entered the game winless. Led by Alex Knox’s 5 goals, the Patriots got into the win column by a comfortable 11-4 margin.
Jake Waltz also had a productive night with 1 goal and 3 assists. Nick White (2 goals), Alexander Watson (1 goal), Wesley Filipak (1 goal), Alex Malmlund (2 assists), and Frank Heng (1 assist) also figured in the Beckman scoring.
Beckman travels to El Toro next Thursday. The Oilers face the unenviable task of trying get their first win against San Clemente on Wednesday.
