UTICA - Welcome to Cedar Point.

At least the high school boys lacrosse version of the amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio.

Forget the all-new Valravn, the Blue Streak or the Cork Screw, coach Mike Naert’s Eisenhower Eagles seemingly reached the apex with a 14-1 Division 1 first-round regional victory over visiting Rochester Hills Stoney Creek Tuesday night.

“I wouldn’t say it was our best game, but it was one of our better games. It was one of our high points of the season,” said Naert. “We’ve had something of a roller coaster season. I know that if we play the way we are capable of and we come with the right mindset, we can play with the best of them. These kids know what they are capable of.

“Stoney Creek is a good team. They started the season 12-0. They’ve only lost a few games recently,” said Naert. “Their numbers 3 (Shane Weston) and 4 (Sawyer Lafrance) are very dangerous players.”

With the victory over Stoney Creek at Swinehart Field, the Eagles raised their record to 8-10.

They await the winner of Thursday’s tournament game matching Detroit Catholic Central and Stevenson.

Eisenhower will meet the survivor of that game on Wednesday, June 1, at Troy Athens.

“We just told the players that the roller coaster ride is done,” said Naert. “In the playoffs, you cannot let down.”

The Eagles held a 5-0 lead at the conclusion of the first quarter. They were up 5-1 at halftime, and then 9-1 after three quarters.

“It was important to get that early lead,” said Naert. “Lacrosse is such a game of emotion. It doesn’t matter if you’re up seven or eight goals, if the other team gains momentum it has a chance to come back.”

Nick Sedlock led the Eagles with four goals and two assists. Ethan Tobiczk scored three times. Nick Sutton had two goals and an assist. Jax Eggert scored twice, as did Anthony Krempa. Austin Mitchell had a goal and an assist. Sean Scott also had a goal.

Jake DeBeau registered two assists. Getting an assist each were Richard Sanna and Cody Gough.

Stoney Creek’s Sawyer Lafrance scored for the Cougars.

The final score really wasn’t an accurate depiction of the outstanding season enjoyed by the visiting Cougars.

They finished with a 13-5 record, making it the first time in program history that Stoney Creek won more than 10 games. The Cougars won the city championship and finished first in the Oakland Activities Association’s White Division.

“We had a fine season, but we just did not come to play today,” said Tyler Fitzpatrick, the Stoney Creek coach.
