DOMINATION

Pentucket lacrosse buries Saugus early, wins 18-4

(Continued)

“It’s nice for us to have assists and goals, instead of watching one guy, which is what we’ve done in the past,” Leary said. “So to see all those assists on the scoresheet was nice for us. It showed we were moving the ball.”

Reid Garrant also had 2 goals in the second quarter, including one that followed a nifty spin move around a pair of defenders to get to the front of the net. Nick Zaia had 2 goals, Jeff Porter had one, and though he didn’t see many shots, senior goalie Brett Connolly had a shutout in goal during his time in the first half, aided by a defense that rarely let Saugus gain possession on attack.

“We got to see different guys in different roles, which is nice early in the season because we’re still trying to iron some things out, but I thought our effort was there and hopefully we continue to improve.”

Pentucket won’t have long to reflect on yesterday’s victory, however, as the Sachems play again today against Haverhill. That game will be played at Trinity Stadium in Haverhill starting at 2 p.m.
