Boys lacrosse team is looking to tussle with the John F. Kennedy Cavaliers and grab their second win of the season tonight, May 1 at Kennedy at 7:15 pm. The team is looking to break a five game skid and pick up a much-needed win.

The Wolverines brought their game on Monday, April 24 against the Clarksburg Coyotes and looked to defeat their rivals and put them in their place. The game went down to the wire, the teams alternated goals the whole game but the Coyotes got last goal with 1:25 left and won 6-7.

Senior Nathan Wright didn’t “care that it was one point, I cared because it was so close and we had three minutes and two opportunities to make the goal and it was so frustrating.” Besides being frustrated the ‘Rines played well. “Our defense shut down their attack and our middies played pretty well,” Wright added.

On Friday, April 21 the team looked to breeze past the Northwood Gladiators as they did last year, but they soon found out the gladiators were ready for a rematch. Northwood kept the Mill to one goal in the game eventually leading to a 1-15 loss.

“We were losing on the face off almost every time, our transition defense was not as good as it should have been,” junior Vijay Vanathayan said. “We needed everyone to hustle and get back but a lot of times they couldn’t.”

The boys lacrosse team went in with a winning mentality last Tuesday, April 25 against the Northwest Jaguars, but instead added another loss to their record at home. The team came out very ill-attempted, making many mistakes.

Though they were beat 12-3 in the first half, boys lacrosse turned that around in the second half tying it 3-3, ending the game in a 6-15 loss. “The first quarter we came out swinging,” Vanathayan said. “We scored the first [goal] really quick but then our intensity kind of died down and we lost momentum.”

Our boys dominated Seneca Valley Screamin’ Eagles to get their first win of the season on Tuesday, April 4 in Death Valley. Watkins Mill came out strong, holding Seneca to only one first quarter goal. Newcomer senior Leonardo Molina scored 4 goals to end the night.

“We ran a bunch of plays on offense…..we kept possession during the first half,” Wright added. “We played pretty solid defense in the second half too.”
