After an exciting trip down to Florida the boys lacrosse team came back to start the season with a few scrimmages and high hopes for the  season. They faced three top 20 teams in the scrimmages going 2-1. The wins came against West Essex, 11-10, in overtime and Scotch Plains, 8-4. The one loss in the scrimmages came against a top 10 team in the state, Rumson Fair Haven. The season started off hot with a huge 19-2 win over Phillipsburg. Charlie Hunnewell led the way with 4 goals and David Brothers added  4 assists. The second game was another blowout against Mendham winning 13-3. Charlie Hunnewell and David Brothers each added 3 goals. The boys first loss came against a close game, West Morris Central, with a score of 8-6. David Brothers added another hat trick and Charlie Vaccaro added another. The following Tuesday Imaculta was the next Victim for the boys quest to the state championship winning 14-2. Jake Caldwell added 2 goals and 2 assists on the day. Finn Vaccaro led the team with 4 goals and 2 assists. The next game was another blowout win, 15-1 against Voorhees. Jake Caldwell led the team with 5 goals and 1 assist. David Brothers once again added a hat trick and 3 assists. Zach Cohen added two goals on the day as well. Next up was the revenge game against caldwell. After a heartbreaking one goal loss in last year’s state semifinals this game was circled on the calendar. Sophomore Alex Vaccaro on going into the game: “I knew it would be a hard fought and emotional game after the loss from last year.” It was just that, after a close game going into the 4th quarter up by 2, the boys went on a 3-0 run to end the game and extend the lead to 9-4. Alex Vaccaro had a team high 3 goals and an assist. Trever Sardis went 17 for 17 from faceoff while adding on a goal in the win. Charlie Hunniewell tallied a goal and four assists. This was a huge win for the program. Both Caden Kirst and Trever Sardis have also been nothing short of amazing this season. So far this season Trever has an outstanding 85% faceoff win percentage. Trever has been the kickstart to this year’s amazing offense run. Caden has been the backbone of the amazing defense played so far, led by Bryce Babich, Aidan Peterson, and Max Austin. On 76 shots Caden Has 55 saves and 21 goals allowed. The heart of the boys schedule starts soon where the true test to see what this team is made of will come out. Some of the teams included Randolph and Pope John. Sophomore Bryce Babich on the season  so far: “This season has been going great for the team. 4-1 and [we’ve] beat a couple very good teams. We are a young team and only going to get better as the season continues.” The boys will look to use these games as momentum towards the end of the season where they will look for a high seed in not only the county tournament, but the State Tournament.
