May 5 – Boys JV Lacrosse: May The Force Be With You

The 2017 DVAL Champion men’s lacrosse team completed a perfect undefeated DVAL season schedule defeating Northgate 14-2 on Friday Night.

A strong defensive effort was put in by all positions, and the ball seemed to have spent more time on the carpet than in the sticks of Northgate ball handlers as the Dons forced ground ball after ground ball. The game started with Carson “Mr. Coast to Coast (C2C)” Burill forced two ground balls behind the Dons net. Leo Cohen was dictating the direction Northgate attack men could travel with his long pole. C2C Burill would then do what he does best, pick up a ground ball, go C2C and hit Renn Standberg who scored for the 1-0 lead. Tucker Loughran-Smith (pronounced Lock Ran Smith, not Smythe) brought the ball from behind the net and assisted Standberg who scored for the 2-0 lead. Nick Karr fired from 15 yards out, 3-0. Burill and Cohen forced ground ball and Standberg got the ball to Loughran-Smith 4-0. C2C Burill picked up a ground ball went C2C to Standberg to Loughran-Smith 5-0. Loughran-Smith brought the ball out from behind the net to Standberg to close the quarter out 6-0.

Oliver “Stingy” Rotundo started the 2nd quarter with a great save only to follow up with another save. Charlie Bettencourt forced a ground ball and on the offensive side of the field, Loughran-Smith brought the ball from behind the net, shot and scored, 7-0. Robert Montoya forced a ground ball which was picked up by C2C Burill to Loughran-Smith to Standberg, 8-0. Montoya forced another ground ball followed by a Ben Clark forced ground ball and a save by Stingy Rotundo. The Dons were playing two men down but forced ground balls by Cohen and Standberg help to kill the penalty unharmed. 1 minute before the half Northgate was finally able to get screaming fast ball past Stingy Rotundo, Yet the Dons wouldn’t go away quietly, with 10 seconds left, Loughran-Smith from behind the net and a 9-1 half time lead.

I’m not sure what they drank at half time but the Dons came out on fire in the 3rd. Cohen and Michael Tarentief would force ground balls and after passing the ball around the net Standberg found the upper right corner of the net from the left side of the field, 10-1. An opportunity for Northgate was thwarted by a big hit from C2C Burill and a Stingy Rotundo save. Northgate then got their final goal of the night, 10-2. A C2C Burill forced ground ball was picked up by Matt “Speedy” Hess at the net line. Speedy Hess would go C2C to get the ball to Standberg on the wing who hit Loughran-Smith in front of the goal and found an open Montoya who shot and scored, 11-2. 3 saves by Stingy Rotundo was only interrupted by a Wilhelm Schueler forced ground ball.

Loughran-Smith started the 4th with a shot from 15 yards out for the 12-2 lead. Stingy Rotundo with a save and Cohen with a forced ground ball followed by Clark getting the ball to Tarentief who to Brooks Thibault who scored, 13-2. Speedy Hess forced a ground ball and Schueler got the ball to Noah Elze who threw it across the field to Thibault who scored the final Dons goal, 14-2. June Jung forced a ground ball and the Dons killed a penalty with forced ground balls by Cole Schoenheide and Jung completed the perfect undefeated DVAL schedule and the 2017 DVAL Championship.
