U11 Laconia lacrosse gets past Concord Crush 10-5

The Laconia U11 boys' team traveled to Concord to play the Crush team this past Sunday and came home with a 10-5 victory. This was a "settle the score" game as these two teams had played to a 9-9 tie the first game of the season. Fighting off the heat, the Laconia offense was able to find the back of the net early and often. Attack Cole Roy netted 6 goals, 5 of which came off of assists from middie Zach Whitney, who also won every faceoff he took. Evan "Papi" Carignan notched two goals while Zach Kitchen and Bree Ricker had a goal each. The Laconia defense was just as impressive, especially in several man-down situations. Keith Corriveau, Edgar Conroy, and Jake Mello frustrated the Crush offense while never coming off the field despite the weather.
