Penguins Youth Teams finish off Fall season at the Brawl
The Penguins program had six teams competing at the Fall Brawl Tournament hosted at Bryant University in Smithfield, RI. There was a lot of great lacrosse being played and it was a great way to cap off the fall season and head into the winter months.
The youngest team in the Penguins program, the 2028/29 Penguins came out firing going 2-1 on the day. First game of the day saw the team battle and beat a tough Hawks team 4-2. Next up was Gorilla where at half the team was down 3-0 but surged in the second half to come from behind and win 4-3. They finished their day losing to a strong 4Leaf team 3-1 and losing a tie-breaker to go to the championship game. Coach Wellemeyer on the day, “I was really proud of how the team battled all day long. The Gorilla win was one of the most exciting games I have coached in a while and the team did a great job of keeping their heads up and fighting to get a victory. Though we lost a close game to 4Leaf, I thought the day was a tremendous success and really excited to see what this group can do in the future.”
The 2024 Penguins had two teams competing and worked hard throughout the day. The 2024 Blue team had a strong win against the Topgun Little Necks by the score of 4-3. The Orange team played a great game against Seven Hills narrowly losing the game with a few minutes remaining. The 2025 Penguins had an excellent day as well going 2-1 and missing the playoffs through a tie-breaker. Coach Chris on the teams performance, “The team played hard all day and Coach Whittemore and I were impressed with our ability to take what we had learned in practice and use it in games. This was a great way to end the fall and we are excited to move into the Box season.
The Fall Brawl the last tournament of the season. The Penguins Box season is right around the corner and scrimmages have already started at Canton on Thursday nights.
