The beat continued for the Sandwich High School boys’ lacrosse team on Wednesday, June 9, as the Blue Knights overpowered yet another Cape and Islands League foe. With a dominant showing all over the field, the league’s top team improved to 9-0 in league play and 10-1 overall with a 12-2 win on the road at Nantucket High School.
The place to start for the Knights would have to be with a guy that did not score a goal. The reason that his teammates were able to net a dozen was because Connor Stack was unbeatable in the faceoff circle. Stack won every draw that he took in the game against the overmatched Whalers, allowing the offense to flow all day long.
Caleb Richardson paced the offense for SHS with a six-point day. He had three goals and three assists for the afternoon, while his brother, Avery Richardson, had three goals and one assist. Anthony Kent had a goal and two assists .and Aiden Malloy had a goal.
It was a big day for several Knights who don’t typically get to light up goalies. Colby Leighton (1 goal, 1 assist), Drew MacKinnon (1 goal, 1 assist) and Kevin Jordan (1 goal, two assists) all scored the first varsity goals of their careers at SHS.
In the net, Shane Corcoran did not have an overly busy day, but was on point. The goalie stopped 83 percent of the shots that came his way, making 10 saves in the game.
Sandwich had two regular season games left to go following its win over Nantucket. SHS played for a perfect regular season against the league when it hosted Nauset on June 10 (after deadline for the Enterprise) and will welcome Bridgewater-Raynham to town on Tuesday, June 15. Following that, the squad will play in the state tournament.
