Serriello’s 6 goals drop Blazers to first loss of season    League-leading scorer Bryce Serriello netted six goals and Kyle Denhoff added four goals and three assists as the Minutemen took down the defending-champion Blazers 16-12 in Boston Box Lacrosse League action on Nov. 28 at South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, Mass. 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. Beyond Serriello and Denhoff, the Minutemen got three goals and an assist from Dan Hanley, and two goals plus a helper from Ryan Murphy; Max Adler dominated the night’s faceoffs and finished with 12 loose balls.    Brandon Dube, Marty Bowes and Greg Rogowski all had hat tricks for the Blazers, who remain in first-place despite the loss.    In the nightcap, Bullseye strung together five straight second-half goals to take control of a back-and-forth battle with the MegaWhales, before trading goals...

Wood’s 5 late goals keys Bullseye comeback over Minutemen    Beau Wood scored five times as Bullseye scored eight of the game’s last nine goals to take a come-from-behind 18-13 win over the scrappy Minutemen squad in Boston Box Lacrosse League action on Nov. 21. In the opening game of the evening at South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, the MegaWhales got hat tricks from Tim Towler, Mark White and defender Scott Corcoran to key an 18-13 victory over PrimeTime.    The opening game saw the MegaWhales control the tempo and scoring, only to see PrimeTime routine claw its way back; after the MegaWhales  made the gap five goals with 3:30 left in the first half, Brendan Grant scored twice – the last beating the half buzzer – as a three goal run closed the gap to 9-7 at the break. But the MegaWhales scored four of five goals potted during the first 3:30 of the second half – with Mike Maggio involved in three of those scores -- stretching the lead to 13-8. From there, the two teams traded goals the rest of the way.    Aside from the three hat tricks, the MegaWhales got multi-point nights from Maggio, Kyle Sminkey, Jake Rotman, Bryant Amitrano, Mark Goodrich and Dan Hettler; PrimeTime got three goals and assist from both Grant and Brett Serriello, and multi-point games from Connor Johnson, Henry Archie, Spencer Low and Jack Murphy.    In the nightcap, the Minutemen jumped out to a 3-0 lead in a game...

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...

Bullseye spreads the wealth in come-from-behind victory    After falling behind 4-0 with an apparent case of opening-night jitters, Bullseye scored the game’s next seven goals, got seemingly everyone involved in the act and ran off to a 14-8 win over the Minutemen. In the other Week 2 game at South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, Mass. on Oct. 17, the MegaWhales jumped out to a 7-2 lead over PrimeTime and cruised to a 15-8 final.    Bullseye – which finished first in the 2016-17 regular season but lost in the title game – was playing its season opener against the Minutemen after having a first-week bye and the team started as if it had been on a long layoff, falling behind 4-0 over the game’s first 10 minutes. But once Josh Hawkins broke the seal with a strip-and-breakaway score, Bullseye connected for seven consecutive markers to take control. Defender Kevin Murphy scored twice on long defensive breakouts, while Adam Fishman netted feeds from Will Walker and Beau Wood in that run.    Bryce Serriello continued his torrid start to the season, and netted two goals early in the second half to narrow the margin to 8-7, and a tying goal was waived off for having come after the expiration of the shot clock, but Bullseye’s pressure – which generated 18 caused turnovers -- was too much for the Minutemen to handle down the stretch.    Eleven different Bullseye players tallied points, nine had goals and eight had multi-point nights as...

Emala’s 8-point debut night keys defending champs    A six-goal run early in the second half allowed the defending-champion Blazers to hold a comfortable lead in Boston Box Lacrosse League action and allowed the team to cruise to a 14-5 opening-night win over PrimeTime. Davey Emala, playing in his first BBLL game, racked up four goals and four assists on the night to lead the way, with Garrett Naimie adding a hat trick and Marty Bowes, James Fahey and Brandon Dube each scoring twice; Bowes added three assists to finish with 5 points.    PrimeTime kept the game close early but had a hard time getting its offense clicking and beating Blazers goalie Joe Evans, who stopped 36 shots to backstop the win. Johnathan DeAngelis scored twice for PrimeTime.    In the season’s opening game – and with the German National Men’s lacrosse team in the stands cheering – the MegaWhales downed the Minutemen 14-8. The Wales scored the game’s first five games and while the Minutemen cut the lead to 3 in the second half, they never got any closer.    Mike Maggio scored three goals and had three helpers to lead the MegaWhales on the night, but Mark White, Jake Rotman, Dan Hettler, Henry Graves and Tim Towler all had multiple points for the winners, who also got 9 loose balls and 42 saves from goalie Chris Hettler. Chris Hettler coaches with the German National Team, and with the team currently touring the U.S. and in attendance, he had...
