Top seeds post convincing wins in Boston Box League semi-finals    Kyle Baker scored seven goals – one less than he had scored in five games played all season – and Marty Bowes added five more as the Blazers broke open a close game early in the second half en route to a 17-11 win over the MegaWhales and a date in the Boston Box Lacrosse League finals on Feb. 13.    For the third straight year, Their counterpart in the championship game will be Bullseye, which dominated the Minutemen 20-10 on Feb. 6, getting four goals each from Will Walker, John Uppgren and Charlie Fay.    The title game scenario is a familiar one, and the set-up is identical to last year, when Bullseye won the regular-season crown – which they captured this year with a 10-2 record – only to drop a 12-11 final in overtime to the defending-champion Blazers. Since the Boston Box Lacrosse League switched to a combined fall-winter 12-game regular-season schedule in the 2015-16 season, Bullseye and the Blazers have met in each finals game, with the Blazers winning 12-10 in 2016, and 12-11 a year ago. The Blazers also won the last winter title over Bullseye, 8-5 in 2015. The last team other than Bullseye to appear against the Blazers in a final was the MegaWhales in the fall session of 2014.    In the opening semi-final game, Bullseye scored in the opening minute, took control in the first 10 minutes and never really allowed the Minutemen to...
