[Baltimore Sun] Winters Mill boys lacrosse holds off Gerstell for 15-12 win; Camden Deming, Reed Postlethwait each score 5

Read Time:3 Minute, 3 Second

Cold and rainy weather might have been the last thing fans were hoping to sit through for while taking in a lacrosse game Tuesday night, but that didn’t dampen the heat of the battle on the field. Gerstell and guest Winters Mill battled each other and the elements, each looking to make a statement with a win Tuesday night.

With offenses humming on both sides in this battle of the Falcons, Winters Mill outlasted county foe Gerstell, 15-12.

“Total team win,” Winters Mill coach Darian Meador said after his team improved to 3-1. “Our guys were able to make adjustments, dial it in and play together through some key moments.”

The scoreboard lit up early with Winters Mill’s Andrew Owens finding Camden Deming just 28 seconds in for the game’s first goal. Deming finished with five goals on a day where he took control of the offense for the Falcons.

“We just have a bunch of dogs,” Deming, who also handed out three assists, said. “We can win a game with anyone doing the scoring because we have that many threats.”

Gerstell fought back, constantly going to its full arsenal of goal scorers to tie the game at 4 early in the second quarter.

That ended up being the last time the game was that close.

Deming and fellow senior Reed Postlethwait took charge, facilitating the offense and taking advantage of opportunities to score.

“For me, it’s all about putting your ego to the side,” Postlethwait, who also scored five goals, said. “Whether it’s me scoring, assisting, setting screens or defending, I want to win.”

Much like in other games so far this season when teams keyed in on the reigning Carroll County Player of the Year, Postlethwait adjusted and used his multiple years of varsity experience to find different ways to impact the game.

“They’re my seniors, my captains that have been on varsity for years,” Meador said. “I can trust them to provide leadership and get us on the right track when we need it the most.”

With Gerstell making a final run late in the fourth to try and spark a comeback attempt, everyone in attendance could hear both seniors relaying the defensive game plan to shut down Gerstell’s attack, and also setting up offensive plays to run.

Chase Oropollo found Postlethwait for the 15th goal and final nail in the coffin, and Winters Mill, wet and tired, rejoiced after taking the latest installment of the “Battle of the Falcons.”

“Every time we play them we know it’s going to be a good game,” Deming said. “It’s always a good fight.”
