2018 Penguins Capture PrimeTime Shootout Championship

The 2018 Penguins got off to a great start to this summer by taking home the 2018 championship at the PrimeTime Shootout at Babson College.

In Game 1 on Saturday, the Penguins took down the RI Bulldogs 12-8, but then fell to Team Central 8-1 in their second game of the day.
Although Saturday ended on a poor note, the team came back strong on Sunday.
“We started off strong early in the day, but the day ended on a tough note against a very strong Team Central team that got after us early, and really dominated both ends of the field,” said coach Tyler Low
Sunday’s big day started by winning their final two games of pool play — 9-3 over True Lacrosse and then 11-5 over Blackhawks — to advance to the playoffs.
In the playoffs, they beat the Clams 7-4 before advancing to the championship for a showdown against Team Central.
Team Central was the only team to go undefeated in pool play, so the Penguins knew they had their work cut out for them, especially after the first game, but they never gave up and ultimately came away with a 9-8 win in a 3 v. 3 Braveheart. A Tyler Grant face off win led to a Ryan Birch breakaway goal to seal the victory.
“I am very proud of the way our guys competed on Sunday, especially in the championship game. With the way Team Central dominated us and them earning a bye to the finals, our guys could have easily gone into the championship game a little bit down — instead, our guys responded in a bug way and competed hard for the duration of the game.” said Low
Sean Kim was strong in the Penguins cage throughout the playoffs, and Kyle Hirshom scored a huge game tying goal in the final seconds of regulation of the championship game.
The Penguins went 2-1-1 before falling to the eventual tournament winners, the NH Tomahawks, in the semi-finals last weekend at Bryant. They are looking forward to a big few days at the Legacy tournament this week.

Offensively the Penguins were lead by Brian Abely, Michael Hauptman, and Jack Quinn. All three put up solid numbers to help the team n the offensive side of the ball. The defensive group, led by Mike McNeil, Patrick Thompson, and Cam Bartlett, had very strong second half performances in both the semifinals and finals locking down and securing the wins.
“It took us until the second half to really get going both offensively and defensively in the championship round,” coach Tony Fitti said. “Once we settled down, played our style of lacrosse good things started to happen. I am very proud of how hard this group worked throughout the weekend”
There was similar success in the A division.
In pool play, the Penguins tied Team 508 and beat 4 Leaf 7-2 on Saturday before beating the NH Tomahawks 9-6 and tying North Shore Storm on Sunday, thus qualifying for the championship.
In the championship, the Penguins blew out 4 Leaf 11-1 to claim the second 2019 title of the tournament for the Penguins.
“This was a total team effort, I am very proud of how this group came together,” Fitti said. “Everyone played a part in securing the 2019A championship, these guys deserve a lot of credit”
The Penguins 2019 A squad was powered by the offensive breakout of Mike Burke. Defensively, it was a total team effort led by goalies Luke Diliberto and Sam Schwartz
The weekend was a great start to the summer and the 2019s only hope to build on it in the coming weeks.
