Nick Koelmel totaled six points, including three goals, and Immaculate Heart Central went on to upend Carthage, 12-3, on Tuesday in an A Division game in Frontier League boys lacrosse.
The Cavaliers (5-4, 5-2), who forged their way with a dominant possession game as Jared Pignone won 12 of 15 faceoffs, shut down the previous first-place Comets, who were limited to single goals in the first, third and fourth quarters.
Goaltender Dan Grant finished with four saves and allowed three goals for IHC, which handed Carthage (6-3, 6-1) its first league loss since 2012.
Jared dominated on faceoffs and Jordan Trudeau did a great job on the wing with winning ground balls, IHC coach Denny Patrick said. Sometimes a good defense is a good offense.
Weve really started to play well as a team over the past six days, Patrick added. Were starting to play tough lacrosse and really put together a full 48 minutes tonight.
Pat Gefell scored three goals for the Cavaliers, and Cole Carpenter and Matt Guyette each contributed a goal and two assists.
Josh Yelvington scored two goals to pace the Comets, and Bryan Peloquin tallied two goals and an assist.
