Boys Lacrosse

The Hornets traveled to Woburn HS on Patriots Day to face the Division 3 school in a non-league match up.  Declan Kirk and Mac Edgerton each scored the first goals of the game with the Hornets dictating the tempo on offense for the majority of the first half.  The defense held strong, and made numerous stops keeping the Woburn Tanners from finding any rhythm on their side of the ball.  Senior Hayden Brady made five big stops in the first half to keep Woburn scoreless.  With a new goalie for the Hornets in the second half, Jack Dipasquale stood tall in the net tallying his own five saves.  A strong defensive effort was led by Senior Captain Andrew Amigo and Junior Brennan Twombly.  Junior long stick midfielder Sam Athanas played very strong between the lines, causing turnovers and containing many loose balls in favor of the Hornets.  Sophomore Quinn Brady and Senior Ben DiFluri added goals of their own in the second half.  Woburn managed to get on the board once in the second half with the final score 4-1 in favor of the Hornets.  The team record sits at 3-1.
