By NoontimeSports.com 

It was an exciting weekend for a few New England high school lacrosse teams that captured their respective division or class championships.

Here is a recap with some links of what you missed from this past weekend’s finales in ConnecticutNew Hampshire, and Vermont, as well as what occurred earlier this month when Rhode Island crowned six state champions.

New Hampshire Boy’s Lacrosse 

  • 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).

Mass. Lax Notebook: Games To Watch This Week (May 6th-11th)

NS Mass Lax Notebook May 2019

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_HS

We’re headed into the home stretch of the Massachusetts high school lacrosse regular season, which sounds crazy, but the state tournament will be here before we know it.

But before we turn our attention to the state tournament later this month, let’s highlight some games to watch, beginning with a must-see match-up in Westwood tomorrow when the Wolverines host Notre Dame Academy (Hingham) in a very important girl’s lacrosse game.

Girl’s Lacrosse: Notre Dame Academy (Hingham) at Westwood (Monday, May 6th at 5:15 p.m.): The Cougars and Wolverines will meet in a very important non-conference clash on Monday with the opening draw set for 5:15 p.m. Both teams enter the game as two of our top five teams in Eastern Massachusetts, so if you’re nearby Westwood High School tomorrow, consider stopping by for what will be a great girl’s lacrosse game.

Boy’s Lacrosse: St. John’s Prep (Danvers) at Xaverian Brothers (Monday, May 6th at 7 p.m.): The Hawks enter the new week with a ton of momentum, thanks to some impressive wins recently, including a non-conference victory over New Hampshire’s Bishop Guertin last week. St. John’s Prep edged Xaverian, 9-8, earlier this spring, so expect this game to come down to the final possession.

Boy’s Lacrosse: Walpole at Needham (Tuesday, May 7th at 4 p.m.): The Rockets will be eager to erase the memories of a two-goal setback to Hingham with a win over the Rebels on Tuesday before heading down the road to face Brookline on Thursday.

Girl’s Lacrosse: Norwell at Cohasset (Tuesday, May 7th at 4 p.m.): Two of the top South Shore teams will meet in what should be a tremendous girl’s lacrosse game. Since falling to Notre Dame Academy, the Clippers have scored back-to-back wins over Rockland (14-3) and Mashpee (15-2). Notre Dame Academy is the only Massachusetts team that has beaten Norwell this season as their other setback came earlier this spring to Cambridge (Georgia). Cohasset enters the game on a seven-game winning streak.

Boy’s Lacrosse: Medfield at Westwood (Thursday, May 9th at 6:30 p.m.): The Warriors have not lost a single Tri-Valley League (TVL) contest this season and will attempt to record a season-sweep over Westwood, whom they beat earlier this season by a score of 18-6.

Girl’s Lacrosse: Needham at Notre Dame Academy (Friday, May 10th at 5:45 p.m.): One day after entertaining Andover, the Cougars will welcome a Rockets squad to Hingham, which enters the new week with a great deal of momentum. Needham has scored some impressive wins lately against Hingham (17-5) and Wellesley (11-5) but faces a tough challenge earlier this week when they visit Walpole on Tuesday for an important Bay State Conference (BSC) clash.
