BATAVIA – Offensive regulars Brandon Heimbuch and Andrew Schreiber combined to score seven goals Monday before the Geneva boys lacrosse team re-organized its attack.
The Vikings tried to be more diverse in the latter stages of a 15-0 victory against host Batavia at Rotolo Middle School.
“A lot of the kids that don’t get a lot of playing time or don’t get to score throughout the year scored today,” Geneva coach Rick Nobregas said. “The defense was just shut-down. [Batavia] didn’t get many shots on goal at all.”
Batavia is in its first season in the Illinois High School Lacrosse Association after a past history in the Northern Illinois Lacrosse League.
The Bulldogs can hope for the kind of progress the rival Vikings are starting to see.
“Just like last year, we’re getting better every game. Last year, it took us until about midseason until we got to peak,” Nobregas said. “They just start out slow, but now you can see the momentum going.”
Batavia-Lake Park postponed: At Batavia, Batavia and Lake Park had its UEC crossover postponed with Lake Park leading, 2-0, in the top of the fifth inning.
The game will likely be resumed later this month, according to Bulldogs coach Matt Holm.
