Tight wins over Minutemen, MegaWhales set up a battle for first place    Kurt Hunziker’s four goals and a hat trick from Garrett Naimie helped the Blazers break open a close game en route to a 13-9 win over the Minutemen, and Justin Turri’s fourth goal of the game with 1:11 remaining in regulation gave Bullseye a 10-9 win over the MegaWhales as the Boston Box Lacrosse League’s top two teams won on Jan. 16 to set up a first-place showdown on Jan. 23.    The first game was a back-and-forth affair until a late first-half run including two man-up goals in the last minute of the first half gave the Blazers control that they would never relinquish. Brandon Dube had a penalty-shot goal and four assists and Greg Rogowski contributed two goals and two helpers for the Blazers, who also got goal-and-assist nights from Marty Bowes and Randy Fraser. Joe Evans made 40 saves to backstop the win, as the Minutemen actually put more shots on goal during the contest.    Ryan Murphy led the Minutemen with four goals, with Ed Doherty contributing two markers, and Rob Murray and Alexi Spears adding a goal and assist each.    The nightcap was tight throughout, with Bullseye breaking a 2-all tie with a three-goal run, only to see the MegaWhales answer with three scores to knot the game at 5 at halftime. In fact, the MegaWhales never led in the contest, but had answers for seemingly every Bullseye scored. When Bullseye’s Adam...

In the nightcap, Bullseye paid back a two-goal defeat from earlier in the season, topping the MegaWhales 13-11.    The Minutemen have been known all season for getting off to hot starts and then allowing other teams back into the action, but a 3-0 opening salvo and a 5-1 lead just eight minutes into the game put the Blazers on their heels all night. Serriello had half of his team’s goals by the time the Minutemen extended their lead to 8-2 after another eight minutes of play.    From there, the Minutemen had an answer for every Blazers comeback, including when the champs narrowed that gap to three goals with roughly two minutes remaining in regulation.

Rogowski’s 10-point night dooms Minutemen; Towler’s heroics sink Bullseye      The Blazers went on an eight-goal run to open the game and the MegaWhales used a three-goal spurt in a game of runs to break a second-half tie, as both teams remained unbeaten in Boston Box Lacrosse League action on Oct. 24 at South Shore Sports Center in Hingham.    Greg Rogowski had a hand in six of the Blazers first seven goals – and finished with 10 points on the night – as the Blazers raced out to an 8-0 lead just over halfway into the game’s first half. The Minutemen clawed back to make it 10-4 at the break, and closed to 11-9 – with another apparent score waved off due to operator error on the three-point clock – before the Blazers stemmed the bleeding and Rogo picked up his final goal and assist  as the team scored twice down the stretch to close out a 13-9 win.    Rogowski’s five goals and five assists led the way, but Davey Emala, Brandon Dube, Kevin Murphy, Marty Bowes and Kurt Hunziker all contributed at least two points in the victory, and Joe Evans stopped 34 shots for the win. All 13 of the Blazers’ goals were assisted. Bryce Serriello – the league’s leading scorer – potted four to lead the Minutemen, with Ed Doherty adding two scores and Neil Calkin and Ryan Murphy each posting multi-point nights.    In the nightcap, Tim Towler’s four goals included a first-half hat...
