Ford Malter scored six goals Wednesday to lead third-seeded Waynflete to a 17-6 victory against sixth-ranked Fryeburg Academy in a Western Class B boys’ lacrosse quarterfinal.

Waynflete (10-3) will play Saturday at second-ranked Falmouth (9-3) in the semifinals.

MESSALONSKEE 17, DEERING 7: The second-seeded Eagles (9-4) pulled away in the second half to elininate seventh-ranked Deering (4-9) in an Eastern Class A quarterfinal at Waterville.

Messalonskee will take on third-seeded Lewiston (11-2) in the semifinals at 5 p.m. Saturday at Thomas College in Waterville.

Dylan Jones scored four goals in the first quarter as Messalonskee opened a 7-1 lead. Deering then pulled within 7-4 on three goals by Nate Richards.

It was 8-4 at halftime after Will Weeks scored for Messalonskee with 2:10 remaining in the second quarter.

“We were starting to put them away in the first quarter and then we kind of settled in a little bit there,” Messalonskee Coach Tom Sheridan said. “We slowed things up too much out there, but I think we definitely came back in the third quarter and took control of the game.”

The teams traded goals to start the third, but Connor Smith’s goal with 8:01 to play in the quarter kicked off a stretch of seven unanswered goals for the Eagles.

“We’re trying to grow throughout the game and we came out with the result we wanted,” Jones said. “It’s a little bit of a fire starter almost into our next game. Hopefully we do one better than we did last year and we don’t let anyone get in our way. The goal is to get as far as we can, but you have to play to get there.”

Jones paced the Eagles with five goals and an assist, and Smith, despite drawing extra attention from the Rams’ defense, still scored three goals and assisted on two others. Weeks and Austin Pelletier each finished with two goals and two assists.

“Connor was marked up a little bit more than usual, so Jones was the open guy and that’s part of being an unselfish offense,” Sheridan said. “We’re willing to move it around.”

“Everybody had a great game,” Stewart said. “I did not expect this type of game. I was expecting them to make some chances and that it would be a tight game.”
