Penguins at 3d Fall Classic (11/06-11/07)

The Penguins had six teams competing over the weekend at the 3d Fall Classic at the Forekicks in Taunton, MA. Starting off on Saturday was the Penguins 2029 Skippers and Penguins 2026 Pirates who competed in the AA bracket.

The Penguins 2026 Pirates team played three tough games and worked hard all day long. They lost two close games to 3d NE White and the Warriors. The Penguins 2029 Skippers team went 1-1-1 on the day with a great win against the Tomahawks Purple and tie against the Kings Blue. The only loss came against 3d New England Red in what was a back and forth contest and ending in a last second goal.

I was very happy with the how the team played on Saturday. Each game was a battle and it was good to test ourselves against top end competition. Our defense played great being anchored by Braylon Beville and Preston Cabana. Our clearing struggled but we made some adjustments going into Sunday.

On Sunday, the High School teams played and went a combined 7-6 record. The Penguins 2022/23 Flyer and 2022/23 Hornets had strong team wins against Tomahawks Purple 2022, 3d New England South 2023 and Piatelli 2023 teams to round out a 4-2 record overall. The Penguins 2024 Knights had a tough start to the day dropping some back and forth games but game to play in their final game with a 8-7 win against a strong Piatelli 2024 team. Finally, the Penguins 2025 Panthers went 2-2 with quality wins against two different Piatelli teams.

Team names were changed to reflect the passing of Stew Curran, who was a friend and mentor to the Penguins. You can learn more about Stew and his battle here and below is the original email we sent describing team names for the weekend.

Without question, PrimeTime Lacrosse and our Penguins teams do not exist without Stew and his contributions. There is no question we would not be involved in lacrosse in any capacity without Stew’s introduction to the game. 
We will be taking many steps now and in the future to honor Stew and the impact he has had on our families and the game of lacrosse. We trust that our players will play hard in Stew’s honor, and above all else cherish the time that we have together as players and coaches, and the opportunity we have to play this game. 
This weekend, we are naming our teams in honor of the places and teams that were important to Stew and his family. Please see below for a brief explanation of each program.
