Winchester High School made the long trip down to the Cape with one goal in mind: showing why they are considered a favorite to win the Division 2 boys’ lacrosse title in Massachusetts.
Taking on a Falmouth team that had been playing very well of late, with five straight wins, the Sachems delivered their message by dominating the early and late portions of the game in a 15-4 victory.
WHS jumped to a 9-1 lead in the first half and took a 9-2 lead into the intermission. Falmouth came on strong to start the third, cutting the deficit to 9-4, but then the wheels fell off.
Goals from Connor Shea and Liam Enneguess early in the third quarter pulled Falmouth to within five. With momentum on their side, FHS had a couple of great chances to make it a four-goal game. A bid from Doug Walker was stopped and turned into a transition play by the Sachems. They went down and scored with 3:05 left in the third and rolled from there.
Enneguess and Collin Almeida had the first half goals for the Clippers.
Falmouth finished the regular season at 11-7 overall. The team will find out its postseason ranking and first round playoff opponent on May 31 when the MIAA unveils the brackets on their web site.
