Broadneck Boys' Lax Rebounds, Nips Arundel
Story And Photo by Colin A.J. Murphy
A lopsided, 12-2 loss to South River on March 21 in which they played penalty-filled and undisciplined ball for most of the game seems to have been just the wake-up call the Broadneck boys lacrosse team needed. Showing their character, the Bruins responded by plastering Meade two days later by a score of 19-1. In a tough test against Arundel at home on March 27, the Bruins had the mental and physical fortitude to pull out a victory in a wildly entertaining, double-overtime, 8-7 win. Twin brothers Riggs Dawson and Wick Dawson connected in the second extra frame to deliver the game winnerRiggs with the goal, Wick with the assistand put the Bruins back on track at 2-1 in county play as of March 29. Both Dawsons had two goals in the game, while Chase Berquist, Brady George, and Zack Franco (pictured above against South River) also scored. Christian Bohanan, Bobby Bohanan, James Dunn, Jeremy Ross, and Wick Dawson had assists for the Bruins, who won the face-off battle, 11-7, and the ground ball battle, 22-15. The Bruins also got nine saves from goalkeeper Michael Meeks.
Against South River we didnt play as a team, which was pretty obvious, said senior defensive captain Ian Marinacci. Against Arundel we proved to ourselves we can play as a team, play with passion, and just have fun When we work together as a team, we can be one of the best teams in the sate, so we just have to stay focused and continue to play together.
