WESTLAKE — A series of unfortunate events befell Avon’s boys lacrosse team Tuesday night against Westlake, to borrow the title of a popular series of children’s books.
Namely the Eagles couldn’t hold onto the ball, they had a hard time generating offense or winning face-offs and when they finally got their act together in the second half it proved to be too little, too late.
The Demons scored the first six goals on the way to a 9-4 win.
Westlake junior attack Adam Tinline scored the first two goals, both coming off assists from Matt Toner. Just 19 seconds after Tinline’s second goal, Toner found the back of the net to make it 3-0 midway through the first period.
Avon (6-10) looked like it had a chance to build momentum late in the first period when the special teams stepped up and held Westlake scoreless on a two-minute man-advantage after Eagles midfielder Cam Wagner was sent to the penalty box for an equipment violation and for having an illegal pocket on his crosse.
Avon didn’t get off its first shot on goal until more than 10 minutes had gone by, and every time the Eagles were able to get off a good shot Demons goalkeeper Brandon Hohman made the save.
