The EG Boys Lacrosse team came out with guns (and sticks) blazing Wednesday against the Providence Country Day Knights. Captain Kyle Carosotto, who scored the first goal just over a minute into the first quarter, said after the game, “We came out with a fire in our hearts and an uncommonly strong start.” EG’s offense continued at an aggressive pace with another four unanswered goals in the first quarter.
PCD kicked off second quarter with some fire, scoring one goal early on; however the Avengers were quick to come back with another four goals resulting in a 9-1 EG lead at the half. EG’s defensive efforts were successful throughout the game, with numerous saves by Goalie Jack Trutza. The Avengers scored another three goals in the second half, with PCD getting only one more goal past the EG defense in the fourth quarter ending with a 12:2 win by EG.
“We didn’t expect the outcome to be so much in our favor,” said Captain Ethan Zink. He said the team really appreciated the fact that there were so many EG fans and that helped the team thrive on the field.
Kyle Carosotto ended up with four goals, while Ethan Zink made three goals and three assists. Andrew Gehlmeyer scored two of EG’s goals, with individual goals by Colin Bernier, Ryan Trinque, and Colin Waitkun. Sam Feinberg supported the offense with two assists. The Knight’s goals were scored by Nicholas Pearson and Cameron Sigal.
Looking ahead to the Championship, the Avengers will play South Kingstown on Monday at Rhode Island College at. “We’re well prepared for Saturday … we’ve been here before and we have the experience factor” said Captain Matt Cruise.
The Avengers will face off against South Kingstown for the Division II championship title on Saturday June 2nd at 6:00 pm at Rhode Island College.
