The Varsity Boy’s CapsLax were again dominant against an overmatched, although improved, Garner team last Friday night winning by a huge score of 14 vs. 2. Fifteen seniors were recognized on Senior Night before a large crowd. This is the most accomplished group of seniors ever within the Broughton Varsity Lacrosse program in terms of cumulative number of wins, but they know they are not finished yet with away games remaining against Conference #3 rivals Millbrook and Wakefield, followed by the start of the NCHSAA state playoffs.
As expected, the defense was stellar again, disrupting Garner on nearly every possession despite a Garner goal early in the 1st period on a man down situation. Although Garner had some quality athletes on the field, they simply lacked the stick skills to compete effectively against the strong Broughton defense. A. Johnston and A. Cole again turned away nearly every shot allowing only 2 goals on the evening.
Offensively, this game was another balanced scoring attack lead by seniors M. Dupere (5 goals) and S. Creech (3 goals) followed by D. Angell, S. Cramer, C. Churchill, M. Eades, O. Fleming, and C. Whyte with 1 goal apiece. For the third game in a row, the assist-to-goal ratio was 50% or better. Seven (7) assists were handed out by M. Dupere (3) followed by C. Churchill, S. Creech, J. Dixon and D. Pitts with one each.
