Lacrosse Takes Down Stonehill

The lacrosse team added another win to their record this week as they beat Stonehill College 7-3. There was a slow start to the game and it was close through the first half. “I thought the team looked a little sloppy on the field,” said Coach Bamann.

However, with Matt Stango (Jupiter, FL) scoring four of the Wolverines seven goals, Stonehill could not hold on. Andrew Suh (Colchester, CT) added a goal and an assist and had 6 ground balls for the day. Both Edward Suh (Colchester, CT) and Alec Westerhoff (LeGrange Park, IL) tallied goals as well. Chris Longo (Somers, NY) kept BA in the game with seven saves in net.

BA dominated the game on the field as well as in the books. Chris Barney (Cheshire, CT) kept BA in the game winning 8 of 13 face-offs and six ground balls. BA outshot the Skyhawks by 21 shots (35-14) and scooped 22 more ground balls than Stonehill (49-27). BA also had 17 successful clears of the 20 they attempted.

While there was a slow start, Coach Bamann was happy with the day’s performance. “The offense had a lot of good opportunities but we weren’t able to capitalize on them. Stonehill’s goalie also had a number of great saves. Defensively we played great and kept them out. This game is a great transition to the rest of the season,” said Bamann.

The team is working hard in practice this week for their game at Navy Prep (Newport, RI) on Saturday October 2nd at 1:00 P.M.
