Beats for First Playoff Win

Sophomore attack Seamus O’Brien scored four goals Tuesday and junior middie scored three as No. 7 seed pulled away from No. 10 in the second half to win 12-7 — the school’s first playoff victory and first 10-win season, both under first-year coach Jeremy Sieverts.

The Lions (10-7) advance to a second-round game at No. 2 Loyola on Thursday.

Tuesday, O’Brien and Redell put Oaks up 2-0 in the early going. After the Toads had tied it 3-3 in the second quarter, O’Brien and middie Nate Lenthall scored to restore a two-goal cushion for the Lions. The score was 5-4 at halftime.

Thacher stayed within reach throughout the third quarter, trailing only 7-5 entering the fourth, but the Lions stretched their lead to 9-5 in the first few minutes of the period and closed it out.

Sophomore attack Cort Rogers had a goal and five assists for Oaks, and senior middie Evan Phillips had a goal and one assist. Freshman middie Carson Campbell scored one for the Lions.

Defensively, goalie James Vils stopped six shots, protected by defenders Kaveh Torabian (10 ground balls), Cole Eisel (6 GBs) and Connor MacLeod (3 GBs). The Lions have allowed double-digit goals only four times this season.
