So far this season, the competition has gotten a lot better when it comes to the arrival of boys' lacrosse. Each year, more schools are adding lacrosse to their athletic program and each year the teams are getting better. When the Minutemen from Washington Township traveled to Lenape to take on the surging Indians, Township had an opportunity to pick up a very important division win. Lenape would find themselves trailing early but bounced back when Zach Simons scored two first half goals to rally the Indians. Lenape would improve their record to 8-3 with their 7-4 win over the Minutemen.
It was a very close game through four quarters. With the game tie at 1-1 at the start of the second quarter, Township once again took the lead on Tony Verchio’s goal. This time with Lenape holding a 3-2 advantage, Ryan Kinch made a nice defensive play off of the goalie and made his shot true and it would be the third tie of the first half. But during the second half, Lenape would slowly pull away and pick up the victory against a determined Township squad.
