Boys’ varsity and JV lacrosse teams hit the field against Sanford, at home, on Monday April 29.

The Eagles wasted no time after taking the field. In the first quarter they scored 13 goals alone. Windham was aggressive and pressured Sanford the entire first half. They had great communication and solid offense and defense. Windham was moving the ball around nicely, too; giving multiple players the opportunity to put one between the posts. The Eagles were scoring one after another after another after another.

Half: 20-0, Windham

The second half was like the first in that there was no lack of intensity and communication between the Eagles. They continued their strong offense and defense, keeping Sanford from getting any goals past the keeper. They really meshed as a team, and the scoreboard reflected that. Top scorers: Tyler Woolston #7, Matty Babb #13, Connor Cummings #17 and Seth Wall #12.

Final: 24-0, Windham

“We played Massabesic on Saturday [April 27]; we were able to control some parts of that game. We knew we had to tighten up some of our systems, both defensively and offensively. Our whole goal was our systems needed to click and we accomplished that,” remarked coach Peter Small.

Windham wasted no time with several players putting the ball in the net early in the game as Windham jumped to quick lead. The Eagles had strong communication as well, moving the ball around and putting the pressure on Sanford. Windham had good offense and defense. The Eagles didn’t let up, with multiple players scoring in the first half.

Half: 12-1, Windham

The second half found Windham not slowing down and continuing to put pressure on Sanford. Despite the Eagles substantial lead, they continued to keep the strength up and prevented Sanford from getting many goals past the Windham keeper. Several Windham players added to the scoreboard. Top scorers: Will Woolston #4, Greg Simpson #24 and Liam Heckman #6.

Final: 17-2, Windham

“We were moving around really well. We started to move off the ball – that I think was key. Our attackmen were seeing the cuts from the mid-field really, really well. Defense was great; won the midfield, which is huge in every game. I think that attributes to how we played today,” stated Coach Seth Fournier.
