Mass. High School Lax Round-Up: Hopedale Secures First-Ever Postseason Berth

MASS LAX HS UPDATE NEW

By Matt Noonan (@MattNoonan11) 

Thursday was an exciting day for the Hopedale boy’s varsity lacrosse team, which qualified for the upcoming MIAA Tournament for the first-time in program history.

The Blue Raiders, who picked-up their 10th win of the season, defeated Valley Tech by a score of 20-4. The contest was highlighted by Nick Fayad, who netted seven goals, while dishing out three assists.

“This makes me very happy, but I’m happy for the team,” said Hopedale head coach Eric Moxim via the Metro West Daily News.

Hopedale’s lacrosse team began as a club team six years ago, but transformed into a varsity unit in 2014. And since their initial varsity contest against Worcester, the squad has shown great improvement under Moxim.

“We’re just happy for all the current players who have been working towards this goal,” said Tim Pizzarelli, who coaches alongside Moxim. “(Qualifying) for the tournament is huge for us.”

Hopedale’s 10 wins are the most the team has recorded in a single-season. Last year, the Blue Raiders won nine contests.

The Blue Raiders will be in-action three times next week, beginning with a Monday, May 8th match-up against North Central Charter followed by a Tuesday (May 9th) clash with Tantasqua.

Other News and Notes from the Worcester lacrosse scene: 

Game of the Week: Groton-Dunstable and Nipmuc Regional in Franklin, Massachusetts.

Nipmuc enters the contest with an impressive 8-0 ledger this season. Since their opening day victory over Grafton, a 9-8 double-overtime win, the Warriors have been unstoppable, tacking on seven additional wins, including an impressive 16-7 win over Pope Francis on Thursday.

Rick Arena‘s squad enters the contest with an impressive 11-1 ledger. Since falling to Shrewsbury last month in overtime, the Crusaders have bounced back, winning straight, including a 6-4 win over Littleton. Their last outing featured a 9-1 victory over St. Bernard.
