  • In Division I, Pinkerton Academy scored its second-straight two-goal championship win over Bishop Guertin this past Saturday at Bill Ball Stadium. The Cardinals of Bishop Guertin defeated the Astros earlier this season when the two teams met in mid-April. After losing to Hingham in mid-May, the Astros returned to the win column to finish their 2019 campaign on a 10-game winning streak.
  • In Division II, Derryfield finished its 2019 campaign with some hardware by defeating Winnacunnet, 9-1. The two teams met earlier this season with the Cougars claiming a hard-fought 9-8 win. Derryfield lost just once this season but finished its season on a seven-game winning streak.
  • In Division III, Hopkinton capped its season with a 15-5 championship over top-seed Pelham. The Hawks fell to Pelham earlier this season by a score of 9-5. Hopkinton would rebound, though, finishing their regular season slate on a five-game winning streak.

  • In Division I, the third-seed Bishop Guertin outlasted Pinkerton, 12-11, to claim their second-straight championship (BG needed overtime to beat Bedford last June). Prior to edging the Astros, the Cardinals beat both Bedford (10-9) and Merrimack (19-6).
  • In Division II, Portsmouth, the top seed in this year’s tournament, defeated Winnacunnet, 10-5, to claim its third-straight championship. The win was also Portsmouth’s second victory against Winnacunnet in the title round in three seasons.
  • In Division III, Hopkinton celebrated its first-ever championship in program history with a 12-11 win over Derryfield. The win erased memories of last season, which saw Hopkinton fall to Laconia, 10-6.

Rhode Island Boy’s Lacrosse (Championships occurred earlier this month)

  • In Division I, top-seed La Salle finished its season with a 7-6 championship win over Moses Brown, which entered the postseason as the second seed. Prior to beating Moses Brown, La Salle knocked-off Bishop Hendricken, 17-7, in the semifinals.
  • In Division II, second-seed South Kingstown needed to score a trio of wins, including a title round victory over top-seed Portsmouth to secure a 12-10 championship win. Curtis Rasmussen highlighted his team’s win with 17 saves, while Max Willette added seven points on five goals and two assists. The championship victory was the first for SK.
  • In Division III, fourth-seed Westerly outlasted second-seed Narragansett, 8-7, to cap its season with a 16-3 record. Prior to beating Narragansett, the Bulldogs scored wins over PCD/SRA Co-op (15-3) and Burrillville (11-10).

Happy Marathon Monday, lacrosse fans.

Before we get to some news and notes (and links) from the past few days, allow us to unveil our first Noontime Sports Eastern Massachusetts Top 10 Polls for both boys and girls lacrosse.

Hingham secured the top spot in this week’s poll – the Harbormen enter the new week with a 4-0 record – while Xaverian Brothers checked-in second following a bounce-back win over Cohasett this past weekend. Lincoln-Sudbury secured the third position.

In the fourth position is a talented Acton-Boxborough unit that will face some interesting foes this week, including Algonquin tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m.

Needham secured the eight position following a solid week for the Rockets, which included a hard-fought win over New Hampshire’s Bishop Guertin. Christian Bliss sealed the win with a late save.

Notre Dame Academy (Hingham) checked-in first overall in this week’s poll – they recently scored an impressive 11-6 win this afternoon over Radnor (Pennsylvania) – while Norwell and Wellesley checked-in second and third, respectively.

The Raiders recently scored an exciting 11-10 win over Walpole, thanks to a late tally with 14.3 seconds remaining by Arielle Dulamac. Additionally, Wellesley’s Anna Hereu sealed the win with a game-saving stop at the buzzer.

The Rockets checked-in fifth – they scored a 14-12 win earlier today over Duxbury.
