The Penn Yan boys’ lacrosse team improved their record to 10-4 over the weekend with a 17-7 win over West Seneca East May 11. The Mustangs jumped out to a 7-2 lead in the first quarter and never looked back.
The win marked coach Brian Hobart’s 250th as the head lacrosse coach in Penn Yan. Hobart, who has an overall record of 250-86, has guided the program since 2004 and those teams have won Section V championships in every year but one. Penn Yan teams under his leadership have appeared in 12 New York State final fours.
“We got off to a great start and got contributions from lots of guys at both ends of the field,” said Hobart. “Our veteran leadership is doing a very nice job at this point.”
Attack man Aiden Mowry led the way on offense with 6 goals and an assist. Colton Smith had 3 goals. Devon Gerhardt, Connor Fingar, and Max Brodmann had 2 goals apiece.

The team faced league-rival Geneva earlier in the week and came away with a 12-6 win.
“The kids did a great job responding to two previous losses and won a big rivalry game,” said Hobart. “We dominated the ground balls and played very well at both ends of the field.”
Smith and Mowry led the scoring for the Mustangs with 3 goals apiece. Fingar added 2 goals and 3 assists. Clay Kinyoun also had 2 goals. Gerhardt and Chase Blumbergs each had a goal and an assist. Jeff Kinyoun had 7 saves in goal.
The team played at Fairport May 14 and travel to Webster-Thomas May 16 to wrap up regular season play.
