The Laconia U11 boys' lacrosse team continued its winning ways this past weekend and was able to post two more victories.
Saturday the team played host to first-year program, the Northwood Black Bears. This young team gave the Sachems all they could handle before Laconia secured the 7-5 victory. Cole Roy continued his offensive assault, as he notched 4 goals and an assist. Evan "Papi" Carignan had 2 goals and 2 assists and Zach Kitchen added a goal for the home team. The Sachem's defense played solid as Cody Newman and Middie Cam Harriman caused several turnovers to limit the Black Bear offense.
Sunday saw the Plymouth Huskies come to town. This rivalry is always fun to watch and even more fun to play in. Roy and Carignan picked up where they left off as they both found the back of the back of the net 4 times each. Middie Zach Whitney recorded his first hat trick of the season to go with 4 more assists while Bree Ricker and Lucas Beane rounded out Laconia's scoring with a goal apiece. Goalie Noah Potter was big in the net, turning aside 9 shots while his defense played solid in front of him. Defensemen Jacob Mello, Edgar Conroy, and Keith Corriveau limited Plymouth's time of possession and kept the ball in their offensive teammates sticks. When the dust settled, the Sachems had a resounding 13-2 victory and held bragging rights, for this season at least.
The Sachems will be playing this Memorial Day weekend against cross-town rivals Lakes Region Lacrosse on Saturday and then a big game against undefeated Merrimack Valley on Sunday.
