The evening started out cool but by 7:30 p.m. the fog started rolling in putting a damper on the fans watching the Eagles varsity boy’s lacrosse team host Westbrook Blue Blazes. Windham (7-4) gave Westbrook (8-3) a good run throughout most of the game.
Westbrook took an early lead with four goals in the first four minutes of the game; however, after that, the Eagles knew they had to step up and show the Blazes that they came to play. Both teams started to trade points until the end of the game. It just wasn’t enough for the Eagles. The first four minutes of the game secured the Blazes win and even coach Pete Small talked about the importance that the first four minutes.
“We came out flat; they found seams early,” he said, “but our kids immediately tightened that back up, and that’s why we played head-to-head the rest of the way.”
Westbrook won 13-8. Westbrook’s Grayson Post scored four goals and Noah Oliver added three with help from Kostopoulous, Tibbets, Shackley and Knapton for the Blue Blazes, while the Eagles Zack Callahan netted three goals and Griffin Jacobson contributed two goals and two assists, Brian Kelley for an unassisted bounce shot and Ross Bachelder sent one in.
