LYNNFIELD — The boys’ lacrosse team finished with a record of 1-2 during three home games last week.

The Pioneers (4-3) began the week with a 4-3 victory over Cambridge Rindge and Latin on Tuesday, April 18.

Captain Peter Look got the scoring started for the Pioneers with senior Ryan Freitas getting the assist. Later in the quarter, it was Look from Freitas again to make the score 2-0 at the end of the first.

The Falcons rallied to score two goals in the second quarter, making the score 2-2 at halftime.

The third quarter was evenly matched, as each team scored once. Freitas got the goal for the Pioneers off a nice dish from junior Ryan Frasier.

Seven minutes into the fourth quarter, Freitas finished off his busy day with his second goal off a pass from senior goalie Kingsley Corona, and the Pioneers held on to win it 4-3.

Corona had 13 saves for Lynnfield.

Falls to St. Mary’s

The Pioneers were right back at it Wednesday, April 19, as they lost to an explosive St. Mary’s team 18-8.

Junior Jack Razzaboni had a fantastic game, finishing with four goals. Look added a goal and an assist. Frasier scored a goal. Sophomore GianLuca Alfe finished with two goals and an assist. Freitas had two assists.

Corona finished with 11 saves but it wasn’t even to stop the dynamic Spartans.

Defeated by Danvers

The shorthanded Pioneers finished off last week with a 14-6 loss to Danvers on Friday, April 21. The Pioneers were missing five varsity players due to vacations and injuries, and had to rely on a few JV players to fill in.

Lynnfield head coach Joe Papagni said, “the newcomers were able to compete at times,” but the Falcons proved to be just too much for the Pioneers.

Papagni was pleased with the play of sophomore replacement goalie Thomas Deady, who stepped in and played well for the Pioneers. He was also happy with the effort from junior Nick Moreschi who was asked to fill in at defensive midfield.

The Pioneers battled hard led by Look, whom Papagni described as a “warrior.” However, the Pioneers couldn’t keep up with Danvers in the second half.

Junior Jack Razzaboni had four goals for the Pioneers. Look added a goal, and junior Zack Huynh scored his first varsity goal.

“We will continue to work with the kids we have and we will have to improve in all aspects of the game,” said Papagni.

The Pioneers returned to Cape Ann League play on Tuesday, April 25, as they faced Pentucket, taking place after press time. Lynnfield hosts Masconomet on Friday, April 28, beginning at 4 p.m.
