Hyde 12

Greens Farms 9

The Boys Varsity lacrosse team traveled south on I-95 to Westport, Ct. to take on Greens Farms Academy in the season opener. Senior Joe Yanovitch ’13 took charge of the opening face-off and within 3 minutes into the contest Jared Larsen ’13 found the back of the net for the first score of the year. Moments later, Larsen ’13 once again drove from the left wing to put Hyde ahead 2-0 in early action. Greens Farms battled back and tallied a score of their own minutes later to close out the first quarter with Hyde ahead 2-1. In the second quarter, Hyde was forced to play man down most of the quarter but stellar play by senior goal keeper
Peter Markham ’13 and defensemen Ryan Cassidy ’13 and John Nelson ’14 stalled the Greens Farms attack. Closing out the first half, Larsen ’13 found the cage again followed by goals from Joe Yanovitch ’13 and
Parker Roma ’14 to put Hyde ahead at the break 5-2.
In the second half, the Wolf Pack took a commanding lead on goals from Jamal Borden-Fraser ’13, Roma ’13 and Larsen ’13 to put Hyde ahead 9-3 going into the 4th quarter. In the fourth quarter, early goals from
Roma ’14 and Borden- Fraser ’13 found Hyde ahead 11-5 with 9 minutes to go into the game. However, Greens Farms staged a huge comeback and within minutes found themselves trailing 11-9 with 2 minutes to go in the contest. Thankfully, Yanovitch ’13 won the face-off and Larsen ’13 sealed the victory with his 6th goal of the day to help the Wolf Pack capture their first victory of the year 12-9. Up next for the Hyde Portsmouth Abbey School…….
