Today is Monday, June 18th, and it’s a BLACK Day.
The Brunswick Boys Lacrosse Team capped off its 2018 season on Saturday with an appearance in their 5th straight State Championship game. An impressive accomplishment for any program, but this year’s game looked to be a true battle! In the regular season, the Dragons met the Greely Rangers at the Dragon’s Liar in Brunswick and jumped out to an early lead but fell to the Rangers in Overtime. The Championship game on Saturday was a mirror image of their first meeting in the year. The Dragons jumped out to an early lead and at half time were winning by a score of 10-6. The Rangers responded and outscored the Dragons 7-3 in the second half. But in typical Dragon fashion, our boys kept battling to close the regulation time in a 13-13 tie. The overtime period was over 2 minutes of back and forth battling between these two teams with goalie Connor Pendergast making 4 of his 22 saves in the game during the overtime. Then, after a missed pass by Brunswick, the Dragons had enough; the defense and midfielders all locked off their players and the attack unit of Andrew Eno, Max Gramins and Aiden Glover caused enough confusion on their ride that gave them the opportunity to jump the Greely. As a result, Andrew Eno was able to knock the ball away from their keeper, and then pass to Max Gramins for the overtime winning goal! The Dragons lost in all the game statistics: groundball, shots, turn-overs, face-offs, EXCEPT in 2 CATAGORIES: SAVES AND GOALS SCORED! Congratulations to the Boys Lacrosse team for also winning the 2018 MPA Class B Sportsmanship Award! Coach Glover thanks all the Dragon faithful who joined them in Portland and in the Town Commons upon the team’s return to Brunswick! Way to go Dragons!
