Wolfpack Varsity Lax vs. Portsmouth Abbey

Hyde vs. Portsmouth Abbey

 

Hyde                                     6

Portsmouth Abbey         15

 

Hyde played host to New England lacrosse powerhouse the Portsmouth Abbey School today in what ended up being a tough day at the “office” for the Wolf Pack. From the opening face-off Portsmouth dominated the contest and quickly jumped out to a 5-0 in the opening minutes. Goalie Cullum Thompson ’12 was stellar in net the first half stopping 17 shots but too much fire power on the Portsmouth squad put Hyde behind

9-1 at the break. The second half, Hyde came out firing led by senior attackman Kevin McMorrow 12 and junior Joe Yanovitch 13 who each put a couple  goals in the back of the net for the Wolf Pack. However,  Portsmouth kept the inexperienced Hyde defense on their toes all afternoon and senior goalie Blake Smaldone 12 who replaced Thompson 12 in the second half was superb stopping 14 shots but Abbey was just too much and cruised to victory 15-6. Next up for the Wolf Pack Falmouth Academy on Saturday.
