Flyers Impress Connecticut: Varsity and JV Lacrosse Defeat Greenwich

By Patrick Grindel ’18

Gold Star Stadium was filled this past Saturday, April 29 in support of both the Flyer’s varsity and JV lacrosse teams.  Both faced a tough opponent in Greenwich High School from Connecticut.

Chaminade’s varsity team knew they had to play well to win, and they accomplished just that.  At halftime, the game was very close with the Flyers leading by a slim margin of 7-5.  During the second half, the Flyers shut out Greenwich, ending the game with a 10-5 victory.  Chaminade attackman, Jake Sexton ’18, had a noteworthy performance with 3 goals to his name.  “We played well as a team,” said Kevin Lynch ‘18.  “Greenwich always puts forward a strong opposition, and we rose to the occasion to beat them.”

The JV team delivered a strong performance as well.  Chaminade’s JV team dominated the game.  At halftime, they were up 9-0, and they concluded the game 16-0. JV coach, Mr. Robert Pomponio, attributed the victory to the defense.  “It was a tremendous effort from the defense, which ignited the attack and put the other team under pressure,” said Coach Pomponio.  Michael O’Connell ’20 scored three times for the Flyers, and Thomas Rogan ’19 scored once and assisted three goals.

The Flyer’s lacrosse teams put forth a great effort and performance.  This past Saturday proved a confidence booster for both teams, as they look to carry their success through the end of the season.
