Men’s Lax Notches Sixth Consecutive Win

            Stonehill set the tone from the outset of the game, playing patient, settled offense and limiting CCSU’s chances on defense. The Blue Devils were unable to find an answer to Stonehill’s dodgers and Hill ended the first half ahead 8-0. In the second half, Stonehill kept the pressure on and coasted to an 18-6 victory.
            Stonehill’s defensive unit of Mike Phillips, Charlie MacDonald, Jordan Medeiros and Mike Filbin played strong team defense and gave CCSU few opportunities to shoot. Connor Green shot very well, scoring 6 goals and adding an assist. Anthony Powers assisted on 4 goals and scored 1 of his own. Nick Palen played well in transition and scored a personal-best 4 goals. Sean Golden went 10 for 14 on faceoffs and scored a goal as well. Connor McDevitt scored a hat trick and added an assist.
            This was Stonehill’s last home game of the season and was also Senior Day. Seniors Jimmy Barrett, Jordan Medeiros, Connor Green and Bobby Flippin were acknowledged before the game for their hard work and dedication to the team. All four seniors performed well in the game and played leadership roles on the field.
            “Today we had another great win. It’s great to end the regular season on a 6 game win streak. All the guys played well and fought for the full 60 minutes. Our seniors stepped up and led the team as they have all season. Now we’re in a good position to make a run in the PCLL playoffs next weekend,” said Head Coach Joe McDonough.
