Farmington 11, Berlin 5
On Saturday, April 7, the BHS boy's lacrosse team made its varsity debut away at Farmington. Although Farmington won the game, 11-5, Coach Scott Rossi took quite a few positives away from the loss:
"I was pleased with how our goalie, Matt Cote, played," Rossi said. "He made 12 stops, and most of those were at close range. I also liked how hard our seniors Brandon Ralph and Ryan Wearne worked; it seemed like they were everywhere on the field.
"Tyler Bouchard caused five turnovers on defense and cleared the ball well for us. We have a lot of new faces on this team, and as they continue to practice and play together they'll become much more competitive."
