Boys’ Lacrosse Splits Week, Moves to 3-1 on the Season

Alvirne’s boys’ lacrosse team has been excellent to begin the season with Jonovan Santana, Ceddy Beaulieu, Ryan Tobin, and others leading the team to a hot 2-0 start and DII’s second seed coming into last week.
The boys opened the week on Monday with a 10-3 beating of traditional contender Souhegan on the back of Beaulieu’s hat-trick, Santana and Tobin each adding two goals of their own, and Preston Ball, Logan Reynolds, and Ryan Harrell each adding one.

Ayden Kelly was also exceptional in goal again, stopping all but three shots he faced, lowering his Goals Against Average (GAA) to 5.67 on the season, which for lacrosse is over a goal per game under what is considered a good GAA. Kelly is borderline on the category of excellence in net, and with his team being able to score almost at will at times, he has certainly done his job to keep the Broncos in games and ultimately win them for Alvirne.

A 10-3 victory over a team that was expected to battle Alvirne to the final whistle had the team oozing with confidence going into a highly anticipated matchup with Oyster River-Newmarket, a team that only beat Alvirne by a single goal on their home field last season. Unfortunately, things did not work out well for the Broncos, as they fell to the Bobcats 14-2, giving them their first loss of the season.

The Bobcats were ultimately too much for the Broncos to handle, but Cole Norris was fantastic in net, stopping all but two shots he faced, with Jonovan Santana and Ryan Tobin picking up goals for the Broncos.

This loss, while it stings for some of the players, including Ceddy Beaulieu, who is currently second on the team in scoring, as they were a part of the Alvirne-Milford squad that was eliminated by the likes of Sawyer and Cole Levesque, both of whom were excellent against the Broncos after playing the Admirals hard in both matchups this winter.

The Alvirne boys will play a pair of road games this week, as they head to Hollis-Brookline to take on the 3-1 Cavaliers on Tuesday in what may be a late-round playoff preview and a trip to play 2-1 St. Thomas Aquinas on Friday in what could also be a playoff preview.
