Rookie Grant Ament – playing his first professional game – had three goals and an assist to spark Archers to an 11-10 win over Atlas Monday night in Premier Lacrosse League action.
Ament, the Haverford School grad who gave up a fifth year at Penn State and was the league’s No. 1 draft pick, scored his first career goal on a backdoor cut that left his defender confused early in the second period to help cut into a 3-1 deficit. He made a strong move from X for his second goal and added a third later in the period as part of a 6-1 run that gave Archers an 8-6 halftime lead.
Princeton grad Tom Schreiber scored twice for Archers. Ryan Ambler (Abington, Princeton) and Joey Sankey (Penn Charter) each had assists for Archers, which also got solid goaltending from Drew Adams (Springfield-Delco, Penn State) and solid defense from Curtis Corley (Shawnee). Corley blocked Paul Rabil’s potential tying goal in the final seconds.
Archers is coached by Episcopal Academy coach Chris Bates. Tony Resch (La Salle associate head coach) is the top assistant.
