Newburyport boys lacrosse beats Austin Prep 13-11, will face Pentucket in North semifinal

(Continued)

Both team’s goalkeepers also had fantastic days, as Newburyport’s Dillon Guthro and Austin Prep’s Steven Davis repeatedly made huge saves to keep their teams in the ballgame. Guthro in particular had one play where he made a save to preserve the team’s 12-11 lead, ran with the ball all the way to the Austin Prep net and then dished it to Shay, whose shot rang off the post, denying Guthro a rare assist.

“He usually gets yelled at when he does that, but he does a good job,” Shay said. “He finds the open guys and doesn’t make any stupid throws like most goalies do when they come out. I’m proud of him.”

For Austin Prep, Morgan and Sullivan each finished with three goals, junior Bobo Carpenter finished with two, and Kevin Kiley and Brett Mazza each had one. After the game, Austin Prep coach Peter Smyth said his team played well enough to win and that he was proud of the effort they put forth.

“I couldn’t have asked for them to play better, they played out of their minds,” Smyth said. “Last time we came up here they beat us up pretty well, and today I think we made them a little nervous. It just stinks to go out the way that we did.”

Newburyport will now move on to the Division III North Semifinal where they will face Cape Ann League rival Pentucket on Wednesday. The game will begin at 5 p.m., and Newburyport athletic director Bob Clarke said that tickets will cost $7 for adults and $5 for students.
