Boys JV Lacrosse Falls to Fryeburg in Season Opener 2-8

Hyde Wolfpack:* 2
*Fryeburg Raiders:* 8

On a cold and sunny Wednesday afternoon, Fryeburg Academy traveled to Bath to take on the Wolfpack on our home turf.  The crowds filed in to brave the cold and soon after the starting whistle* Ben Albert ’21* connected with Captain* Lucas McCabe ’18* for a quick stick goal in traffic on the crease.  A tight battle ensued for the remainder of the half.*  Martin Liu ’20* and* Harry Liu ’20* both showed great promise in their first games, creating turnovers and battling for ground balls.*  Elijah Schleifer ’19* struck back against a Fryeburg assault late in the game with a fast break and a quick dodge that left him in open space for a finish.*  Andrew Stark ’19 *played an outstanding first game as net minder.  He logged 12 saves including a doorstep save in the 3rd quarter.  *All 23 players saw the field in our opening bout.*  In summary, this team played great and showed grit and team cohesion that will surely bring us success in the future.

We look forward to a Friday matchup vs. Lewiston High School at 4pm on our turf.
