Since they are having such great regular seasons, the Silver Lake High lacrosse teams will keep playing once those schedules run out of games.
It appears as though both the boys and girls teams for the Lakers will be competing in the MIAA South Sectional playoffs this season. Last week, the girls qualified for the playoffs despite two weeks remaining of regular season play. Meanwhile, the boys made it clear they will clinch this week.
As of the start of this week, the girls were 10-3 on the season. They have been shining offensively as of late; in their three wins last week, the team scored a combined 62 goals, or more than 20 per contest, on average.
First, they trounced Barnstable 17-5 on Monday, May 6 and the following day, they had a season-high in goals. The Lakers beat Quincy 24-8 on May 7 and two days later, they had a 21-14 win over Bridgewater-Raynham. It was the win over Quincy that put them at 9-3 on the season and qualified them for postseason play.
On the boys side, the Lakers came within a game of qualifying for the postseason with a victory over a tough Bishop Stang opponent. Stang came into last week with the same record as them: 6-3 on the season. However, the Lakers had no issue taking them down 18-7 on Saturday May 11 to improve to 9-3 on the year.
Sean Daly led the way offensively in the boys victory over Stang, scoring five goals (with one assist). Dhruva Nugent’s three goals ranked second in the win.
The boys next game is next Tuesday,May 21 at home against North Quincy (4:00 p.m. start time).
The girls next game is on the same day against the same opponent at the same time, except they will be on the road.
