Boys’ Lacrosse Has Historic Season [Photo Album]

It was an historic year for the boys’ lacrosse team. The group started the year strong and finished the same way, concluding the season with some home games and one tough road opponent and earning the school’s best-ever single-season lacrosse record.

The first home game of the year was a rematch against Plattsburgh. In the first meeting, the Huskies had their number, but the guys knew Plattsburgh would come out strong. The Huskies scored early and never looked back. Goals were scored by numerous players, including Drew Rose, Nate Boak, Jack Pensa, Elijah Deveaux, Will Arquette and more. With a final score of 18-3, the Huskies swept Plattsburgh in the home and home series.

The next game, a road match against Massena, would be the toughest of the year. Massena is one of the best teams in the North Country. The guys knew they would need to bring their best effort in order to come out on top. Just as they did vs Plattsburgh, the Huskies scored first and continued to stay on top. With the score only 3-0 at halftime, it was a defensive battle. Massena’s goaltender made huge saves that kept the score close, but the Huskies continued to fire shots. Massena was able to score a few in the second half, but it wasn’t enough. The Huskies won 7-3. “It was a big one for sure,” said Nate Boak (Attack, 2020). Massena is always a tough test. It was a good road win”.

The final two games of the year were played at home versus Kuper Academy. It was a fun two games for the boys. Playing Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, the team won both games. Cisco Delliquadri ‘20 and Ben DeGirolamo ‘21 played goalie for the two games, each splitting time. Sam Debitetto (Attack, 2018) notched his first Northwood Lacrosse goal. DiBitetto was electric after the game. “I’ve waited two years for this,” he said. “Nothing feels better.”

The team’s final record of 8-1 is the best record in Northwood Lacrosse history*. It was a great year for all the guys, and the boys want to wish all of the seniors, Patrick Callahan, Sam Debitetto, Logan Stewart, Martin Simanek and Jack Pensa the best of luck in college and beyond. You will be missed.

 

* Thorough records of past lacrosse seasons are not available. Northwood staff with extensive historical knowledge of the school believe no other Northwood lacrosse had a more successful season.
