Boys lacrosse come close to victory against tough competition

By Adam Cervone ‘17 | Sports Editor

This past Monday, the boy’s varsity lacrosse team had a match against Brother Rice’s  varsity B team and played them to a close 15-12 loss.

Brother Rice’s lacrosse teams for the past years have been known throughout the league as a dynasty. Many players come out of the organization and continue their careers in lacrosse in Division 1 or Division 2 schools.

“We definitely came into the game knowing the history of Brother Rice,” Peter “Jay” Ulbrich ‘17 said, “from the start of the game we tried to match their confidence they bring on the field.”

The Brother Rice Warriors came out flying in the first quarter netting seven unanswered goals to give them a soft cushion for the rest of the game.

“They definitely showed their skill in the first part of the game,” Michael Lesha ‘17 said, “although they were mostly sophomores, they have been playing at such a high level for such a long time that it took awhile to get into the play.”

The Warriors continued their scoring streak ending the half with an impressive yet beatable 10-1 lead.

This was the Blue Devils last home game so it meant that it was senior night here at South. The parents of all the seniors walked the field with flowers in hand and smiling faces. This proved to be a rest and source of fuel needed for the home team to try and make a comeback.  

“We had extra time for the seniors to take their pictures, this was enough for us to get our minds straight.” Lesha said.

The Blue Devils battled back from a 10-1 deficit in the first half, scoring 11 more goals. Yet it was just short of the opposing 15 goals scored by the warriors by the end of the game. The final score was 15-12, in favor of the Warriors.

The Blue Devils next game begins their playoff run, Monday, May 23 at home, their opponent is to be determined.
