The game scheduled against St. Michael-Albertville on Monday of this week was moved to Friday and then to next Monday, May 13 in Delano because referees were not available. The girls have only played once while the boys are 1-3.

Meanwhile, the Tiger boys dominated Irondale 14-1. The Delano home game was moved to Irondale’s turf field because of poor local field conditions.

Nick Walstad and Jack Nelson powered the offense by both netting five goals, while Aaron Wagner scored twice and RJ Pfeilsticker and Sean Mallak had one goal each. Goalie Chip Wills made 10 saves and Michael Peterson had three saves.

Delano played host to its first home game Friday against Holy Angels in less than desirable conditions with rain, snow and temps in the 30’s.

After leading the first three quarters of the game, the Tigers yielded some costly turnovers, and lost 11-8. Wagner led with four goals, with one each by Walstad, Mike Christians, Nelson and Pfeilsticker.

Boys lacrosse is home against Rochester-Century, noon Saturday, May 11 and plays at Holy Family in Victoria 6:30 p.m. Monday, May 13.

Girls lacrosse plays at home against Centennial, 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 9, is at Rochester Mayo, 10 a.m. Saturday, May 11 and is home to Holy Family, 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 14.
