While the weather last Sunday prevented most of the Bedford Boys Youth Lacrosse players from playing in their opening day games, the U11 White team opened with a 6-1 win, on the road, against Stoneham.

The Bucs put on the pressure early and maintained it throughout the game. According to coach Bob Scoville, “The team did a nice job passing and pursued ground balls relentlessly.” Time of possession was an obvious key to winning the game, as the Bucs were able to control the ball and prevent Stoneham from getting many opportunities. “At this level especially, time of possession is crucial to the success of the team. James Nichol was particularly fast getting to ground balls today,” Scoville continued.

Charles Demeo led the offense with 2 goals and 2 assists.  On the other side of the field, James Lorusso provided stout defense against an athletic group of Spartans,  and had several key clears, all while contributing 3 assists.  The offensive balance that this team has was on full display as Devin Leida, Andy Scoville, Jackson Tucker and Carter Georgette were each able to score goals.   Joe Kaiser and Joe Zellner shined in net allowing only 1 goal.  The Bucs face Cambridge Sunday 4/9.
