Dexter Lacrosse Drops Heartbreaker in Double OT to Pinckney

The Dexter boys’ lacrosse team dropped out of first place in the SEC White after a heartbreaking 10-9 double overtime loss to Pinckney Tuesday night.

Dexter took control early with a 4-1 lead and built a 6-3 lead at halftime, but the Pirates rallied in the second half.

The Dreadnaughts led 9-8 with just over a minute remaining, but the Pirates tied it up to send the game into overtime.

Neither team scored in a great defensive overtime period, but Pinckney ended it with a goal in the second overtime for the 10-9 final.

The loss drops the Dreadnaughts into second place in the SEC White. They will need help with a Tecumseh loss for a spot at their third straight league title.

Nico Willard had three goals for the Dreads, while Dawson Waddington and Benny Willard had a goal and two assists each. Jeremy Schroeder made six saves in net for Dexter.

The Dreadnaughts bounced back with a 13-9 win over rival Chelsea Wednesday night.
