Despite comeback effort, Sachems hold off Royals Chase goal seals the win

(Continued)

"The second quarter was the difference in the game for us," said Beckett. "We really started to click on offense, and from there we managed to break through their defense and put in some good goals."

Roberts was relieved to get the first victory of the season.

"This is a nice win. It was our first home opener and beating Georgetown, which is a big rivalry of ours, made it that much better," said Roberts.

"It was all about offense today, though our defense really tightened up when they came back to tie it at 13. But that's when our defense kicked in even further and forced them to take more outside shots which in turn made it easier for me to save.

"Our slides were there on time, and we were attacking the net," added Roberts. "That's Pentucket lacrosse."
