NH bests VT in Twin State Lacross Matchup

Via the Burlington Free Press:

ANOVER, N.H. — New Hampshire’s potent attack dominated the first half, powering an 18-7 win over Vermont in the Lions Twin State all-star high school boys lacrosse lacrosse game Saturday afternoon.

Cody Marquis netted his four goals in the first half as the Granite State built a 12-2 advantage before intermission. The second half was more balanced, with Vermont clawing as close as 14-5.

“The second half we figured it out,” Vermont coach Bill Elberty of Hartford said. “It took us about a half to adjust and figure out what we needed to do in order to keep them a little more on the perimeter, figure out the face-offs. And the guys just kept working and they played an excellent second half, they really did a good job.”

Marquis, who plans to play Division I lacrosse at Hofstra University next year, knocked in two of his goals in just over a minute early in the second quarter to push the lead to 9-1.

Mount Anthony’s Chris Moyer put Vermont on the board with 1:43 left in the first quarter after New Hampshire surged ahead 6-0 to open the game.

Rutland’s David Kraus scored by firing in a shot while falling down to his left with 3:20 to play in the third quarter to bring the Green Mountain State to within 14-5.

Champlain Valley’s Nick Hart scored two goals, converting his second after winding up for a long shot that beat New Hampshire goalie Zach Morgan (two saves) high late in the fourth quarter.

The Vermont squad was more comfortable after playing together for a half, said Hart, who attributed New Hampshire’s success to a better early flow.

“They were definitely more fluid, it seemed like they had played together more,” said Hart, who plans to try to walk on with the St. Lawrence University lacrosse team. “But they put it together in the same amount of time we did. The stick skills and the basics worked for them and we were sloppy and they took advantage of it.”

Bill Hennessey (Essex), Michael Ranaldo (Rice) and Matt Simpson (Randolph) added goals for Vermont. Kaleb Nichols (BFA-St. Albans) made four saves in the first half and Essex’s Sam Mattson turned away nine shots in the second half.

Bryan Bourque provided three goals and five assists for New Hampshire while Ben Calegari, Alex Davies and Will Vogt each added two goals. Jordan Hitchcock, Trevor Morrissette, Jack Nadeau and Griffin Sandler each scored once. Donny Denman made three saves in the first half.

“It was nice to get out of state and get some very good competition,” Hart said.

NH Girls over VT

didn’t have an answer for New Hampshire’s fast-break offense as the Granite State raced to a 22-5 win in Lions Twin State all-star high school girls lacrosse game Saturday afternoon.

New Hampshire broke free for a number of 2-on-1 rushes in the Vermont zone in jumping out to a 15-3 lead at the half.

Rutland’s Marisa Kiefaber (two goals) scored in the opening minute to stake Vermont to a 1-0 lead and Sarah Andrews of Woodstock found the net to make it 3-2 with 22:33 to go in the half, but that was the closest Vermont could come.

“It was really cool to get together with all the girls we play against the whole season,” said Kiefaber, who will spend a semester in Peru before attending Northeastern University next year.

Champlain Valley’s Erika Gobeille split the defense and fired a low shot past New Hampshire’s Lorin Field (nine saves) for Vermont’s fifth goal midway through the second half.

“It’s such an honor to be able to play in this game,” Gobeille said, “and although the score wasn’t exactly what we wanted, I met a bunch of girls who I played against during the season and they’re all so nice. It’s a really good bonding experience and a good way to end my senior year.”

Mount Anthony’s Melissa Schramm added a goal for Vermont and Paige Emond (Burr and Burton) made 11 saves.

Samantha Gallerani scored five goals to lead the Granite State. Josie Bezeredy added four tallies and Kati Sousa and Julia Wright each netted three.

“I think it’s always a great thing for us all to come together and bring the best of the best,” said Lucinda Hewitt, the Vermont coach from Woodstock. “I think we gave it what we had.”

Brattleboro midfielder Sarah Clark had to leave the game in the first half after suffering a knee injury.
