The Middle School Boys Lacrosse team faced off against St. Michael’s Country Day School on Tuesday and found themselves to be perfectly matched against the team from the other side of the Bay. After an early lead which they held through half, RHS fell behind in the fourth quarter, before mounting a comeback to tie the game in the closing minute. Alas, SMCDS found the back of the net first in overtime to take home the victory. Score 8 – 7.
Four goals each from Kobe Polley and Griffin Spinney led the Mariners to a win of the Chancellors from St. Thomas More. Nick McConnell had a great day on faceoffs and Nick Mangiameli had 6 saves in goal. Congratulations also to Dylan Lehouiller for his first high school goal!
