KENNESAW — The Buford boys lacrosse upsets Area 3-AAAAAAA/AAAAAA champion Harrison 11-7 on Monday evening at Harrison High School.
Harrison was the favorite going into this match up but that did not phase the Wolves as they got off to an early lead. Buford was 8-3 after two quarters.
In faceoffs, Buford (13-6) had Dawson Andrew and Josh Williams commanding things.
The Wolves’ offense was led by Zack Salo who had four goals and two assists, as well as Evan Leonardo with two goals and two assists.
Other notable contributors for Buford were Jackson Rhodes (one goal, one assist), Ashton Daniels (two goals), Nash Perry (one goal), Matthew Scruggs (one goal) and Mikey Canavan (one assist).
Buford will play in the Elite Eight either Thursday or Friday against the winner of the Allatoona-West Forsyth game that will take place on Tuesday. If West Forsyth wins, Buford will host but if Allatoona wins, the Wolves will be on the road.
