The Penguins brought three teams to what would be the final weekend of summer lacrosse for the program. The 2022 Platinum, 2024 Blue and 2024 Orange all competed at the NH 64 Tournament Session 2 across two locations in New Hampshire.
The 2022 Platinum team looked to build off an already impressive summer during their final weekend of lacrosse. The team went 3-1 with decisive victories against 3d New England South, Seven Hills and Performax from Buffalo. They faced a tough HGR Blue team in the final contest, dropping a back and forth game in the last minute of play. James Carr held down the defensive side of the field making crucial saves throughout the day. Colin Birch was dynamic from the face-off x and the offense was paced by Aidan Webb and David Pacella. Jaden Cronin played lock down defense as LSM and also scored from 18 yards out in transition during the final game.
The 2024 Blue team came up against some strong competition and ended the tournament with a win against Summit Lacrosse and tied the Coyotes. The team dropped a one goal game against the South Shore Kings 6-5 earlier on Saturday. Max Becker played great in net and was backed defensively by Dylan Rogers and Riley McCann. Colton Chambers pushed the offense throughout the weekend.
The 2024 Orange team came one goal away from claiming the title of the A bracket but fell just short going 2-1-1 on the weekend. Saturday saw them go 2-0 with a strong wins against Piatelli Lacrosse and Catamount Tan. On Sunday they dropped a back and forth, one goal game against Seven Hills and then tied the Hawks 6-6 in the final game of the tournament. Defensively the team was backed by Paddy Webb and both goalies, Jack O’Neill and Justin Hutnick. Matt Pomer did it all from the midfield, taking face-offs and winning groundballs. Twin brother, Mike Pomer scored some crucial goals at attack alongside Ryan Jones.
“Overall, I was very happy with how the team played throughout the weekend. I think defensively we played our best team defense of the summer and our goalie play was outstanding. It was great to see the team come together as every game we played was a one goal game.”Coach Jason Wellemeyer
