Minutemen have late run to rally past MegaWhales for first win    Bullseye broke a 6-6- tie with a five-goal run taking control over its battle with the defending champion Blazers to capture a 13-11 win in Boston Box Lacrosse League action from Oct. 23 at South Shore Sports Center in Hingham.    Bullseye got off to a hot start in the game, scoring four quick goals in dominating the game’s first six minutes of play, but the Blazers rallied behind two goals from Marty Bowes and scores from Greg Rogowski, Brandon Dube and Davey Emala to knot the game at five. After the teams traded goals, Bullseye’s Charlie Fay netted an extra-man goal with 25 seconds remaining in the first half to make the score 7-6 at the break.    But Bullseye proceeded to dominate the first 10 minutes of the second half, and it was mostly the heroics of goalie Joe Evans – who finished the night with 42 saves – that the lead only ballooned to 11-6. During that stretch, it took heroic efforts to beat Evans, like two one-handed scores on inside feeds by Kyle Smith and a laser to the corner from Beau Wood.    Still, the Blazers rallied down the stretch, with Rogowski and Kyle Baker getting markers that kept the score in doubt nearly to the end of regulation.    Joe Nardella’s 26 loose balls and his dominance at the faceoff dot set the tone for Bullseye, which got a hat trick from Wood,...

Rogowski, Bowes lead Blazers to 13-7 win over PrimeTime    After a season lost to injury, Joe Nardella returned to box lacrosse and showed he hadn’t missed a beat, corralling 18 loose balls and adding two goals, an assist and two caused turnovers to lead Bullseye to a 14-6 win over the Minutemen in the team’s Boston Box Lacrosse League season debut.    In the first game on Oct. 16 at South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, Greg Rogowski and Marty Bowes scored four goals each, and Josh Graver added a hat trick to lead the Blazers to a convincing 13-7 victory over PrimeTime in a battle of the two teams that won their games during Week 1 of the league’s fall-winter season.    The Blazers opened each half with a 3-0 run to first take control and then expand it, before riding their vaunted defense and 28 saves from goalie Joe Evans to the victory. Rogowski added three assists and Bowes picked up two, James Fahey and Kevin Murphy both had two helpers each and Kyle Baker added a multi-point night for the defending champs. Henry Archie, Nik Schuler and Spencer Low led PrimeTime with two goals each, with Archie adding three assists on the night. Cam Egan and Alex Bunick also had multi-point nights for PrimeTime, which fell to 1-1 with the loss.    In the nightcap, Bullseye used a balanced attack and a hyper-aggressive defense in racing out to a 5-0 lead and locking down the Minutemen.

   The Boston Box Lacrosse League – the leading adult men’s box lacrosse league in the northeastern United States -- will begin fall-winter play on October 9 at the South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, Mass., with five teams competing in a season scheduled to end in mid-February.    The BBLL has built a reputation in lacrosse circles for its high-level box play, and with more professional-level and former top college players participating seemingly every year, the 2018-19 season could be the league’s most-competitive ever.    “The rivalries in this league are well-established, and while certain teams have topped the standings, we have proof from our last few seasons that all teams are vulnerable and that every game is a dogfight,” said Randy Fraser, the league’s founder. “This league has 100 of the best players in New England going at it each week, playing real box lacrosse at as high a level as you will find anywhere in America. The more we have played, the better the league has gotten, which is why I think we should see 2018-19 be our most-competitive season yet.”    This is the fourth year when the league is playing a combined fall-winter season, with each team playing 12 regular-season games, prior to two weeks of playoffs.    All five teams – the defending-champion Blazers, Bullseye, MegaWhales, Minutemen and PrimeTime – are organized and run by their captains, meaning that players who want to run in the fall-winter league must get a spot from a team...

Competitors’ comeback thwarted by Uppgren’s OT goal      Owen Allen’s fourth goal of the game – a sprawling layout dive with three seconds remaining in regulation – gave Beavers & Co. an unlikely come-from-behind 12-11 victory over the Gunners in the 2018 Boston Box Lacrosse Summer League Championship Game Aug. 14 at South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, Mass.    Allen’s goal was the Beaver’s fourth score in the final 4:30 of the fourth quarter, as the team made up predominantly of players from Babson College finally erased a deficit that started early and lasted until the final minute.    The Gunners – whose only loss during the summer regular season was to the Beavers – jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the game’s first 13 minutes, with John Piatelli (Cornell) netting a hat trick, Greg Rogowski (Merrimack) adding two goals and Mike Donnelly (St. Lawrence) contributing a goal and two assists.    Even after Beavers & Co. broke the seal on a goal from Niall Dillon (Babson), Piatelli answered with his fourth of the game and it was 7-1 Gunners with 7:30 left in the half.    From there, however, Beavers & Co. went on a five-goal run, getting two goals from Austin Kent (Bryant), a length-of-the-floor feed from goalie Austin O’Brien (Babson) to Kyle Danehy (Merrimack), another goal plus a helper from Dillon and the first score of the night from Allen (Babson) on a nifty solo move.    Still, when Chris Reilly (Endicott) netted a slick inside feed from Mike Leonard (Assumption),...
