Boys matched up against Stratton Mountain School, traditionally one of our toughest opponents on the calendar. The game was hard fought on both sides with a higher level of lacrosse play than we had shown in our previous outings. Dublin had lots of great offensive opportunities, but poor shooting led to the disparity in score. Our defense played another solid game, but needs to work on recognizing the tendencies of specific players on opposing teams
Senior Ben Simon scored all three of our goals. Sophomore Ian Baker had a solid day at the faceoff X, winning many of the draws, but needs better support from our wings in order to secure more ground balls. Sophomore netminder Idriss Traore finished with nine saves.
We look forward to hosting Stratton for a rematch on Thursday, May 4th. Our next game is at Proctor on Wednesday, April 26th.
