Moskalyk scores four, and Nardi caps it off
by Randy Pascal
Jack Moskalyk scored four goals earlier this week, as the GSLA (Greater Sudbury Lacrosse Association) Peewee Rush defeated the GSLA
Mammoth 7-4 at Carmichael Arena.
But it was a goal by Sam Nardi, with just under seven minutes to play, that most excited the 12 year-old veteran of the summer lacrosse loop.
"Almost every game, me and my dad will talk about who hasn't scored a goal yet this year," explained Moskalyk. "We try our best to pass to them, so that
they can get a goal. Sam just got his first goal in the game tonight."
Hauling in a large bounce off the end boards after Devin McAdam missed on a breakaway, Nardi made no mistake in netting the final goal of the
game. Joining Moskalyk and Nardi on the scoresheet for the winners were Andrew Whitehouse (end to end rush after picking off a pass), and
Cameron Shanks, who took a pass from Connor Woods and used his size in front of the net to get a really good look.
Replying in a losing cause was speedster Brandon Salem, who darted free to score three times on a breakaway, adding a fourth tally in the third
period from the high slot.
"We were passing a lot in the second period, and we were setting picks, which gave us the advantage to take some shots and score," noted Moskalyk, as
the Rush broke open a 1-1 game with no less than five second period markers, before the teams traded goals in the third.
