Lacrosse Loses Close One to Navy Prep

The lacrosse team took the field in the pouring rain to take on Navy Prep for Parents' Weekend. While Navy held the lead for most of the game, Bridgton never gave up. Blake Pendledon (Wayland, MA) started off the Wolverines with two goals in the first quarter. Nick Gorrasi (Sandwich, MA), Lawerence Dee (Charlotte, VT), Dylan Parlee (Essex, MA) (with two), Ryan O'Sullivan (Centerville, VA), and Teddy Wright (Copiague, NY) all tallied goals to cut Navy's lead to 10-8. With 1:52 left in the game, BA called a time out to regroup for the last drive of the game. With 1:11 on the clock, Parlee netted his third goal of the game to make it a one goal difference. Navy had one last break which the Wolverines stopped and took the ball down the field for their last chance. Unfortunately, Navy's goalie was able to stop a blast from BA to win the game 10-9. Although the Wolverines suffered a loss, they worked together as a team and never once gave up.

In total, BA scooped 22 ground balls with Walt Hinnent (Winston Salem, NC), Parlee, and Pendelton leading the way with 3 each. Chris Smith (Montclair, NJ) played the first half in goal and stopped 4 shots and Tyler Abernathy (Winston Salem, NC) finished off the game with six saves in net.

Up next the lacrosse team will travel to Merrimack College to take on Boston University's Club team on Friday October 7th at 7:00 P.M.
