Penguins at Colonial Clash

The Penguins wrapped up the Fall season at the Colonial Clash Tournament on November 14th and 15th at several locations throughout New Hampshire. The Penguins had 11 teams playing over the course of two days in what proved to be one of the most successful weekends of the Fall season.

The Penguins 2029 team had a tremendous day going 3-0 overall with a +17 goal differential against HGR, 4Leaf and Gorilla. The clean sweep on the day put the program at 7-2 overall this Fall.

I was really happy with how the team played this Fall season. This tournament in particular we came to every game with intensity and worked hard. The game against Gorilla was a back and forth game and what came down to our team possessing the ball for the last 3 minutes to win the game. Our defense was lights out with standout performances by Braylon, Graham and Westy. Goaltending from all of our goalies was outstanding and we got a lot of production from our attack of DJ, Austin and Kyle and our midfield was paced by Nolan. Most exciting and surprising was how Kellan played at the Face-off X, winning key draws and scoring some goals! It was and exciting season and one we can build on going forward.

Coach Jason Wellemeyer

The Penguins 2027/28 team had a great win against the Houlagans early in the day and then dropped two tough games later on. The Penguins 2026 team went 3-0 with an excellent 7-5 win against a very strong Kings White team late in the day.

The Penguins 2025 team continued their dominance again going 3-0 on the day. The team had decisive victories against the Kings, Houlagans and HGR to finish off the Fall season 6-0.

We continued with our aggressive defense and caused turnovers all over the field letting us push the ball upfield all day. I really think our offense came together and played as a team and it showed. This team has a different feel about them. There is an excitement in their play that hasn’t been there in the past. I’m proud of how much each player has grown in the past few months and I can’t wait to watch it continue. 

Coach Chris St. George

The Penguins 2024 Blue team went 0-1-2 but the Fall was highlighted by outstanding play in the final game against Laxachussetts White.

The final game on Saturday was best lacrosse this team has played in a year. Max Becker was outstanding in net, making jaw dropping saves throughout the game. Defensively the team battled and caused some key turnovers. I couldn’t have been more proud of how the team played and excited to keep working with this team.

Coach Jason Wellemeyer

The Penguins 2023 team continued a great Fall going 2-1 on the day with great wins against the Hawks and HGR Green. The Penguins 2022 Orange team came out with two ties against the Maine Mussels and HGR. The Penguins 2022 Platinum team also had two hard fought ties against 4Leaf and HGR Blue.

The 2022 Penguins capped off a strong fall showing with one sided victories over Maine Select (the top 2022 ME players) and Hawks as well as a 6-6 tie against the top 2022 HGR team. Lockdown defense and excellent goaltending from both Tobasky and Carr, along with 10+ goals in 3 of the final 4 games of the season made for a great end to Fall 2020.

Penguins at Fall Brawl

The Penguins program continued the Fall season the Fall Brawl on Saturday, November 7th. Eight teams were spread out across four locations in New Hampshire and the Penguins continued their winning ways going a combined 14-8-1.


The Penguins 2029/30 continued an already impressive Fall going 2-1 with huge wins against 4Leaf and HGR. The final game of the day proved to be the toughest as the team lost in the final seconds to a strong Coyotes team. 

“I was very proud with how our team played all day. We had great goaltending with Bobby and Liam in net and our defense played exceptionally backed by Braylon, Graham and Westy. We had consistent play from our attack all tournament and DJ Jenkins came up with some clutch goals all day. My biggest takeaway was how we were able to implement what we leaned in practice and bring it over to the game. Overall I was very happy with how the team competed.”

Coach Jason Wellemeyer

The Penguins 2022 Platinum team enjoyed two decisive victories beating the NH Tomahawks Gold and 4Leaf Orange and going 2-1 overall at the Fall Brawl. The wins began in cage with tremendous goaltending from James Carr and they were able to build multi goal leads early in both games. David Pacella, Nolen Beauregard, Sean Murphy, Brady Daylor, and Mike McLaughlin led the way offensively while Colin Birch’s play at the faceoff x and the lockdown defense of Jaden Cronin, Andrew Walsh, Colin Shea, Hunter Maher and the Brini brothers and 2023 Bruno Batty allowed us to close out games going away.


The Penguins 2027/28 had a strong win against the Houlagans with a solid defensive effort all day long. The Penguins 2026 went 2-0-1 with decisive victories against HGR Blue and RI Bulldogs. They tied a back and forth game with a strong 4Leaf Army team 4-4 and overall had a very positive day of lacrosse.


The Penguins 2024 Blue had key victories against Tomahawks Purple and RI Bulldogs. The team was led by strong goaltending from Max Becker and outstanding defensive effort from Liam Schaker and Dylan Rogers. Will Abplanalp was great at the Face-off X giving the team much needed possessions finishing 2-1 on the day. 


The Penguins 2024 Orange team also went 2-1 with strong team wins against NH Tomahawks Gold and Harlem Lacrosse. 

“We had a tough first game against the Coyotes but the team bounced back for the final two. We again had excellent goaltending from Jack O’Neill and Justin Hutnick. Matt and Mike Pomer boosted our midfield along with Hayden Kearney. Our defense was lock down in the final two games with strong play by Jack Cuddy and Jake Riley.”

Coach Jason Wellemeyer


The Penguins 2023 continued a strong Fall going 2-1 overall and beating the NH Tomahawks Gold and Catamount. The 2022 Penguins Orange team went 1-2 with great win against Rip It and lost a close game to the Coyotes. 

Penguin Spotlight – Jonah Sisitsky

Each week we want to pay special attention to one of the players within our Penguins community, and provide them an opportunity to tell the world about themselves.

Jonah on the prowl

Hailing from Walsh Middle School in Framingham, MA, Jonah plays defense for the 2025 team.

Coaches, friends, and family push me everyday to be the best player I can be. My friends constantly motivate me to work, and push harder.

In the future Jonah hopes to play lacrosse in college. He understands his strengths are “being able to throw checks and really have an understanding of how the game of lacrosse is played”, but that he needs to get stronger and faster to make it happen.

Outside of lacrosse, Jonah plays golf, basketball, baseball, and tennis. When not playing sports, he enjoys a nice chicken parm and playing COD Modern Warfare.
