Wolverines Open the Spring Season With A Win

The Bridgton Academy lacrosse team opened up their spring season with a 14-5 victory over the Lumberjacks Men’s team. The team traveled to Portland, ME to play under the lights at Deering High School. As the game started off, the Wolverines jumped to a quick 4-0 lead and kept the momentum on their side for the remainder of the game. At one point the Lumberjacks lessened the lead to 7-2, but Bridgton pulled ahead for a 14-5 win.

Larry Dee (Charlotte, VT) led the offense with four goals and two assists in the game. Ryan O’Sullivan (Centreville, VA) added three goals, while Jake Johnson (Trabuco Canyon, CA), Chris Dolewa (Saco, ME), and Karlos Locke (Owings Mills, MD) each tallied two. Dylan Parlee (Essex, MA) and Christian Houk (Tivoli, NY) rounded out the scoring with a goal apiece. Nick Gorassi (Sandwich, MA) had a solid game contributing three assists in the win. Houk and Tony Marcella (Bridgton, ME) combined to win 16 of 19 faceoffs. Chris Smith (Montclair, NJ) played in net for the Wolverines and blocked six shots that came his way.

The lacrosse team will hit the road again this Wednesday as they head to New Hampshire for the Holderness Jamboree. They will then host rival NAPS on Saturday the 7th for one of their biggest games of the year.
