Eagles hold off Eddies in opener

Sport: Lacrosse (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: April 17th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

LEWISTON — Early-season results only mean so much, yet it was still a good start for the Messalonskee boys lacrosse team Thursday at Bates College.

 

The Eagles rode four goals from Dylan Jones and a strong all-around performance from centerman Jack Bernatchez to a 13-7 win over Edward Little in their regular-season opener.

 

“It being April 16 I think some stuff wasn’t in there just yet and we didn’t have our starting goalie (Elija Tuell) today, so that kind of changed what we did defensively,” Messalonskee coach Tom Sheridan said. “Guys kind of settled in there and they played pretty well I thought.

Cony boys lacrosse tops Oxford Hills

WATERVILLE — Whatever early-season rust the Cony High School boys lacrosse team had was knocked off at halftime. Ahead of Oxford Hills by two goals at the break, the Rams offense came together in the second half, and Cony pulled away for a 9-2 season-opening win Thursday at Thomas College.

 

“I thought as the game went on, we started to move the ball a little better. I thought we were doing a little too much individually to start, and once we got moving, we started to play a little better. We got some more opportunities,” Cony coach Chad Foye said. “I’m happy with how the kids played today.”

If you are at all familiar with lacrosse you have likely heard that it is the fastest growing sport in the country.

 

According to a report from the National Federation of State High School Associations, the number of high school participants in lacrosse grew from 45,050 to 126,695 from 1997 to 2007 and those numbers have only climbed since then.

 

In a separate report by the NFHS released on Oct. 30, 2014, the number of participants had grown to 188,689 in 2014, and if recent trends in central Maine are any indication, the lacrosse freight train is nowhere near slowing down.

“On another day and a little warmer that probably would have gone out,” said Poland Coach Mike Connor.

Sport: Lacrosse (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: April 17th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Lake Region is one of several schools that has built a program one step at a time.

 

Molly Christensen, a junior on Lake Region High’s first-year varsity girls’ lacrosse team, cradled the ball in her stick as she weaved around the Freeport defense. Moments later she fired a shot for a goal.

 

Soon, Christensen was back on the attack. Although she occasionally headed to the sideline for a break, she was in the middle of the action for the most part. That suits her just fine.
