Bridgton Falls to UMass In A Close One, 10-7

The Wolverines Lacrosse team lost a hard fought game to host UMass on Friday despite playing very good Lacrosse for the majority of the game. Trailing 5-3 coming out of halftime the Wolverines were able to keep things even for the majority of the 2nd half with the two teams exchanging goals throughout. Down 8-5 with just over 4 minutes remaining, Bridgton had a pair of man up opportunities which they were able to convert cutting the lead to one at 8-7 with only two minutes remaining. The Minutemen however were able to hang on adding a pair of insurance goals as the game drew to a close handing the Wolverines a tough 10-7 loss.

Ben Cullen (Huston, TN) and Ben Santos (Boxford, MA) led the Wolverines with two goals apiece, while Nate Rivet (Lewiston, ME), Kane Henderson (West Linn, OR) and Kyle Carman (Wakefield, MA) each added one goal on the afternoon.

Bridgton will return to action Tuesday, April 14th, when they travel down to Wesleyan College for a 3 PM game.
