It was a tough loss but the Kingswood Oxford varsity boys lacrosse took another step forward on Wednesday.
The Wyverns lost to Hamden Hall, 11-4, but we are competitive and showed improvement.
“The boys showed tremendous effort against a talented team,” Kingswood Oxford coach Brett Garber said. “They were very skilled offensively, and the defense held them in check for most of the game.”
Kingswood Oxford (1-5) gave itself a chance to pick up its second win of the season as it trailed by just three goals to start the fourth quarter. Hamden Hall then went on a run and put the game away.
“The attack unit showed poise against a defense that was much bigger, and had great effort defending the clear,” Garber said.
Teddy Crowther ‘22 scored two goals for the Wyverns with Carter Smith ‘22 and Justin Edwards ’21 adding a goal each.
“It was the entire midfield group that really helped control the game and the tempo,” Garber said.
Chris Sienko ‘21 played great midfield defense and was able to transition the ball to offense using his speed and game sense. He also added a nice assist to Crowther. Ben Woerlen ‘22 and Edwards did well disrupting Hamden Hall’s specialty face-off player.
Arthur Smith ‘22 and Conor Caneday ‘21 both played goalie and each made some key saves.
