Wolverines End Fall With 2-1 Weekend

The Lacrosse Team traveled to Lake George, NY and the Golden Goal Complex to play in the Siena College Fall Showcase. In their final showcase of the Fall Bridgton collected two wins in three games.

In the first game of the day the Wolverines took on the Mohawk Indian Club Team. Bridgton came out flat and played a sloppy game. Coach Bamann said, "There was too much individual play, and we did not work well as a team." As a result Bridgton was handily defeated.

The second game of the day was a different story as BA came out focused against a competitive NED Elite, out of Western Massachusetts. Bridgton moved the ball much better and was able to control play most of the game. Goals were scored by Casey Helms (Sandwich, MA), Mark Wood (Camarillo, CA), Kam Bumpus (Needham, MA) and JP Coombe (Annapolis, MD). Ryan Cordero (Orlando, FL) collected his first goal of the Fall, and also picked up an assist. Defensively Joey Estes (Westbrook, ME) anchored the backfield and in net Will Janney (Richmond, VA) played very well. "We played very well, coming off of a loss we were focused and determined," commented Coach Bamann.

In the final game of the Fall, Bridgton played, "one of the best games this season," according to Bamann. Taking on Christian Brothers Academy, BA possessed the ball for the majority of the game, answering each CBA goal with two of their own, en route to an 11-5 victory. Once again Janney played very well in goal, also picking up an assist. Brent Brothers (Tewksbury, MA) did well on face offs winning a high percentage. "This was a great game to end the Fall on," remarked Bamann, "it showed the progress we have made throughout the season."

Coach Bamann said, "We had some long road trips, and a lot of practices, but we handled it well and I want to congratulate the guys on a successful Fall season."

Bridgton Lacrosse concludes its initial Fall season with a record of 10-7, and look to the Spring to pick up where they left off.
