Massachusetts High School Lax Round-Up: Checking-In On The West

MASS LAX HS UPDATE NEW

By NoontimeSports.com (@NoontimeSports) 

Our Massachusetts High School Lacrosse Round-Up has returned – yes, we’re officially back for the remainder of the season, so make sure to circle back each week for various posts on the numerous teams, including our various social media round-ups, too.

For this week’s post, we’re shedding some light on Western Massachusetts teams, including Longmeadow, Mount Greylock and others! 

First, congratulations to Longmeadow’s Kristopher Campbell, who was tabbed last week’s Epoch/USL High School Boys’ Player of the Week following an impressive 11-point effort in his team’s 14-10 win over Amherst-Pelham.

Longmeadow, which is in-action today against Northampton (9-1), will visit Harvard Stadium on Saturday, May 6th to face-off against Lincoln-Sudbury.

Last season, the Warriors defeated the Lancers in Amherst by a score of 15-11. The game was followed by a New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) tilt between Amherst College and Colby College.

Following this season’s meeting, fans are encouraged to stick around and cheer on the Boston Cannons, who will play their home-opener against the Chesapeake Bayhawks. Face-off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.

Jeff Stripp and the Mount Greylock Mounties (10-0) captured their 10th contest on Monday, defeating Pittsfield by a score of 17-6. Reilly Parker and Pat Storie highlighted their team’s 10th win of the season by combining for 12 goals and four assists, while Owen Politis netted a hat-trick.

The Mounties return to the field on Saturday when they host Lee, which also defeated Pittsfield this week – Wednesday, to be exact – by a score of 20-9.

Hoosac Valley received a big-boots from Casey Meczywor on Wednesday as he netted seven goals, while dishing out a pair of assists in his team’s 13-4 win over Taconic. The win was the Hurricanes’ third of the season.

As noted in yesterday’s Berkshire Eagle, Hoosac Valley led 8-0 after the opening session and 9-0 by halftime.

Extra News and Notes from the West!

Games to Watch this Friday, May 5th & Saturday, May 6th: 

  • Westfield at Pope Francis (Friday, May 5th)
  • Chicopee Comp. at Wahconah (Friday, May 5th)
  • Lonmeadow vs. Lincoln-Sudbury (Saturday, May 6th | Harvard Stadium)

High School Lax Social Media Round-Up: Triton Provides Coach Beaulieu with 100th Win

By Mass. High School Lax (@Mass_LaxHS)

It’s been an exciting few days of high school lacrosse in Massachusetts, and below are some tweets from the week, highlighting exciting outcomes and achievements thus far.

Following yesterday’s win over Medford, the Triton girl’s varsity lacrosse team celebrated Coach Stacey Beaulieu‘s 100th win on the sidelines.

After the game, Coach Beaulieu tweeted the following about the milestone:

The Walpole boy’s varsity lacrosse team began their season with a hard-earned 7-5 win over Xaverian Brothers.

Next up for the Rebels, a date with the Wellesley Raiders, who captured their initial contest of the season, defeating Burlington, 15-7. Hugh Callahan paced the Raiders with three goals and three assists, while Grant Chryssica added five points on four goals and one helper. 

We got off to a great start with Hugh Callahan scoring his first career goal,” Wellesley coach Rocky Batty said via email following his team’s opening day win. “Our first six goals were scored by five (different) players, and I’m really happy that most every goal was assisted.

“Our defense learned a ton (yesterday). I thought Burlington had some very good dodgers and shooters to go along with Coach Dan O’Brien‘s schemes. “Teddy Darcey played great, (he finished the contest) with 17 saves.” 

Reading scored a hard-fought victory over Billerica, defeating the Indians, 8-7. Jack Geiger netted five goals for the Rockets, while Matt Milano and Gus Gobiel each tallied a pair for the Indians.

Boston Lax correspondent Kevin Stone captured some exciting moments from the contest’s third quarter:

Following the game, Reading tweeted the following:

Extra, Extra: It was an exciting day to be a Westwood Wolverine on Tuesday as the boy’s lacrosse team defeated Bellingham (21-1), while the girl’s also beat Bellingham (19-0) … Boston College High School earned an impressive win yesterday, defeating Needham at home by a score of 12-10 … Catholic Memorial scored an important win, beating Newton North, 12-9 … Mount Greylock boy’s lacrosse opened its season with a 16-10 win over Burr & Burton Academy (Vermont). Patrick Storie led the Red and White with nine points on eight goals and one assist.

Mass. HS Lax: Opening Week Games To Watch

Opening Week!

By Mass. High School Lax (@Mass_LaxHS)

A brand new season of Massachusetts High School Lacrosse is slowly set to begin – there are still a few play-dates and scrimmages scheduled for the next few days. Below are a few games we’re going to be keeping an eye on – of course, there will be others, too – but here are some games to watch, attend or follow on social media!

  • Westford Academy at Lincoln-Sudbury (Thursday, Mar. 30th | 4 p.m.) – This will be a good test for the Grey Ghosts as they take on the two-time defending MIAA Division 1 Eastern Champions.
  • Xaverian Bros. at Belmont Hill School (Saturday, Apr. 1st | 10 a.m. | Scrimmage): We will be keeping both eyes on Tim Gardner‘s squad this season, which begins its 2017 campaign officially next Tuesday, April 4th when they host Walpole before entertaining Catholic Memorial three days later on Friday, April 7th at 7:00 p.m.
  • Duxbury vs. LaSalle Academy (Friday, Mar. 31st | 5:30 p.m. | Scrimmage): This will be the Dragons’ third consecutive scrimmage before hopping into regular season play next Monday (Apr. 3rd) against Whitman-Hanson.
  • Wellesley at Norwell (Monday, Apr. 3rd | 4 p.m.): The Norwell girls lacrosse team will attempt to win their third consecutive MIAA Division 2 crown, but don’t overlook a Wellesley Raiders squad that will certainly be in the mix for the Bay State Conference (BSC) crown this season.
  • Needham vs. Lexington (Thursday, Mar. 30th | 3:45 p.m. | Scrimmage): The Rockets saw their run toward a MIAA Division 1 South Sectional crown fall short to Duxbury last season, but being a new season (and a new tam), one should not overlook Needham, which will begin its season against B.C. High next Tuesday (on the road). As for Lexington, they’ll look to rebound after falling to Lincoln-Sudbury last year in the MIAA Division 1 North Quarterfinals.
  • Needham vs. Franklin (Thursday, Mar. 30th | 6:00 p.m.): Before competing in a play-date with Westwood girl’s lacrosse on Saturday, the Rockets will look to commence their season against a talented Franklin squad, which captured the MIAA East Division 1 crown last season with a 7-6 win over Acton-Boxboro.
  • St. John’s Prep at Reading (Thursday, Mar. 30th | 4:00 p.m. | Scrimmage): The Rockets and Eagles will tangle in what will be a quality scrimmage before Reading commences its season on Saturday, April 1st against Acton-Boxboro.
  • Grafton vs. Shrewsbury (Tuesday, Apr. 4th | 3:30 p.m.): Expect Grafton to make another run toward the MIAA Boys Central/West Division 3 crown, especially after defeating Mount Greylock – a team one should not over look, too.
  • Mount Greylock at Burr & Burton Academy (Tuesday, Apr. 4th | 4:15 p.m.): Mount Greylock should certainly be in the mix for a Central/West Division 3 crown this season – hey, maybe they actually get past Grafton and secure a spot in the state semifinals.
  • Cohasset at Newton North (Saturday, Apr. 1st | 12:00 p.m.): We highlighted this game earlier in an exciting tweet from coach James Beaudoin. The past two years have seen this game head to an extra session, so it is possible we could see a third this weekend.
