Livingston Boys Varsity Lacrosse Dominates West Orange, 16-1

By SAMMIE CARUSO

April 20, 2014 at 10:38 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston boys Varsity lacrosse team dominated once again on Saturday with a 16-1 victory against West Orange High School. This was the second game in which Livingston did not let their opponent score more than one goal.

"They work really hard," Livingston head coach Brad Dzama said. "And with hard work, you get results. I’m so proud of these boys and the effort they put in at every practice and game. Congratulations to them.”

In the first quarter, Livingston set the tone. They kept the majority of play on their offensive side and West Orange was no match for their brisk passes and shots. Seniors Billy Mandl, Jake Hoffer, and Dylan Kruse played storng offense. Hoffer was on fire from the start, whipping in Livingston’s first goal 35 seconds into the game and then went on to score three more in the game.

Kruse handled the draw, winning the ball time after time. In fact, his one goal resulted from a beautiful ground-ball pickup after the draw. Mandl had four great goals overall, with two in the first quarter. One was assisted by junior Tommy Heller, who also had an outstanding game with four total points—two in the first quarter.

Defensively, senior Jake Karp played strong, resulting in many drops for the Mountaineers. Livingston had a total of eight goals in the first quarter while holding West Orange scoreless.

The second quarter was similar to the first, with Livingston dominating both offensively and defensively. Juniors Ryan Chisarick, Brendan Flaherty, and Max Scher got their names on the board. Chisarick and Scher each had a goal, while Flaherty added two.

West Orange scored their lone goal at the end of the first half, sending the Lancers into halftime with a16-1 lead.

With their victory clearly clinched, Livingston started the third quarter with some fresh legs. Sophomores Brendan Myers and Matt Ringler were added to the game, and as the quarter progressed, junior Chris Matia and sophomores Billy Donahue and John Pindea were put in, as well. 

The Lancers are looking forward to their next game against Morris Knolls on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. on the Livingston High School turf.
