Rogowski’s 10-point night dooms Minutemen; Towler’s heroics sink Bullseye      The Blazers went on an eight-goal run to open the game and the MegaWhales used a three-goal spurt in a game of runs to break a second-half tie, as both teams remained unbeaten in Boston Box Lacrosse League action on Oct. 24 at South Shore Sports Center in Hingham.    Greg Rogowski had a hand in six of the Blazers first seven goals – and finished with 10 points on the night – as the Blazers raced out to an 8-0 lead just over halfway into the game’s first half. The Minutemen clawed back to make it 10-4 at the break, and closed to 11-9 – with another apparent score waved off due to operator error on the three-point clock – before the Blazers stemmed the bleeding and Rogo picked up his final goal and assist  as the team scored twice down the stretch to close out a 13-9 win.    Rogowski’s five goals and five assists led the way, but Davey Emala, Brandon Dube, Kevin Murphy, Marty Bowes and Kurt Hunziker all contributed at least two points in the victory, and Joe Evans stopped 34 shots for the win. All 13 of the Blazers’ goals were assisted. Bryce Serriello – the league’s leading scorer – potted four to lead the Minutemen, with Ed Doherty adding two scores and Neil Calkin and Ryan Murphy each posting multi-point nights.    In the nightcap, Tim Towler’s four goals included a first-half hat...

Bullseye spreads the wealth in come-from-behind victory    After falling behind 4-0 with an apparent case of opening-night jitters, Bullseye scored the game’s next seven goals, got seemingly everyone involved in the act and ran off to a 14-8 win over the Minutemen. In the other Week 2 game at South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, Mass. on Oct. 17, the MegaWhales jumped out to a 7-2 lead over PrimeTime and cruised to a 15-8 final.    Bullseye – which finished first in the 2016-17 regular season but lost in the title game – was playing its season opener against the Minutemen after having a first-week bye and the team started as if it had been on a long layoff, falling behind 4-0 over the game’s first 10 minutes. But once Josh Hawkins broke the seal with a strip-and-breakaway score, Bullseye connected for seven consecutive markers to take control. Defender Kevin Murphy scored twice on long defensive breakouts, while Adam Fishman netted feeds from Will Walker and Beau Wood in that run.    Bryce Serriello continued his torrid start to the season, and netted two goals early in the second half to narrow the margin to 8-7, and a tying goal was waived off for having come after the expiration of the shot clock, but Bullseye’s pressure – which generated 18 caused turnovers -- was too much for the Minutemen to handle down the stretch.    Eleven different Bullseye players tallied points, nine had goals and eight had multi-point nights as...

Emala’s 8-point debut night keys defending champs    A six-goal run early in the second half allowed the defending-champion Blazers to hold a comfortable lead in Boston Box Lacrosse League action and allowed the team to cruise to a 14-5 opening-night win over PrimeTime. Davey Emala, playing in his first BBLL game, racked up four goals and four assists on the night to lead the way, with Garrett Naimie adding a hat trick and Marty Bowes, James Fahey and Brandon Dube each scoring twice; Bowes added three assists to finish with 5 points.    PrimeTime kept the game close early but had a hard time getting its offense clicking and beating Blazers goalie Joe Evans, who stopped 36 shots to backstop the win. Johnathan DeAngelis scored twice for PrimeTime.    In the season’s opening game – and with the German National Men’s lacrosse team in the stands cheering – the MegaWhales downed the Minutemen 14-8. The Wales scored the game’s first five games and while the Minutemen cut the lead to 3 in the second half, they never got any closer.    Mike Maggio scored three goals and had three helpers to lead the MegaWhales on the night, but Mark White, Jake Rotman, Dan Hettler, Henry Graves and Tim Towler all had multiple points for the winners, who also got 9 loose balls and 42 saves from goalie Chris Hettler. Chris Hettler coaches with the German National Team, and with the team currently touring the U.S. and in attendance, he had...

New England’s premier men’s box league opens sixth season in Hingham      The Boston Box Lacrosse League – the leading adult men’s box lacrosse league in the northeastern United States -- will begin fall-winter play on October 10 at the South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, Mass., with five teams competing in a season that ends Feb. 13 with its annual championship game.      With five teams and more professional-level and former top college players than ever before, the league expects to have its most-cutthroat season ever.      “We can’t wait to get started on another season; the quality of play keeps going up, the rivalries in this league are well-established and the 2017-18 season should be harder fought and more competitive than ever,” said Randy Fraser, the league’s founder. “Our games always seem to be close, and the difference between first- and last-place teams never seems to be more than a few goals, because you’re looking at 100 of the best players in the Boston area going at it.”    This is the third year when the league is playing a combined fall-winter season, with each team playing 12 regular-season games, prior to two weeks of playoffs.    All five teams – the defending-champion Blazers, Bullseye, MegaWhales, Minutemen and PrimeTime – are organized and run by their captains, so players who want to run in the league must get a spot from a team captain. Players interested in joining the BBLL but who don’t know the captains...

Competitors’ comeback thwarted by Uppgren’s OT goal      John Uppgren’s fourth goal of the game, 3:08 into sudden-death overtime, game the Gunners the Boston Box Lacrosse League summer championship with a 16-15 win Aug. 8 at South Shore Sports Center in Hingham, Mass. The Gunners had a six-goal lead nine minutes into the second half and seemed to be cruising to a win when the Competitors started a comeback that they didn’t complete until Andrew Song’s goal with 45 seconds remaining in regulation tied the game at 15.    Both teams had multiple chances to score in overtime, Andrew Forrester turned away two solid scoring chances for the Wolves, and Competitors goalie made four stops in overtime until Uppgren finally found the back of the net at the end of a determined drive through a double-team.    Uppgren (Tufts) led a balanced Gunenrs attack with four goals on the night, with Drew Adams (Vassar), Nick Conway (Bowdoin), and Beau Wood (Tufts) adding three points each. Vin Curran (Lynchburg), Michael Leonard (Assumption) and Todd Zahurak (SUNY-Oswego) adding two points each. Forrester made 25 saves in the win.    Greg Rogowski (Merrimack) netted five goals and added two helpers for the Competitors, with Ben O’Neill adding four goals and Nick Shaw dropping a hat trick and a helper. Shaw wound up as the BBLL’s leading point—getter in the summer, with 18 goals and 15 assists on the session. Mark Bloom added two points for the Competitors, who got 35 saves out of...

3d Team Steak strengthens hold on first place      Former Tufts teammates Beau Wood and John Uppgren connected on three late goals to give the Gunners their second consecutive 10-9 nail-biting win over the Competitors in Boston Box Lacrosse League summer action on June 27.    In other action, the Voyageurs downed 3d Committed 12-9, and 3d Team Steak remained unbeaten, turning a close game into a rout over the Wolves 19-4.    A week after Uppgren scored the game-winner with one second leftin regulation, he didn’t wait quite so long to supply the heroics, but with a one-goal edge and under 10 minutes remaining, he and Wood rekindled their college fireworks. First Wood bagged his first of the night on a feed from Uppgren, then the pair reversed it, giving the Gunners a 9-6 lead – the first three-goal edge of the game – with 6:35 remaining. After Matt Cancian (UNH) answered for the Competitors, Uppgren fed Wood again, and the Gunners were able to hold off a frantic challenge, as goals by Lukas Buckley (Ohio State) and Cancian gave the Competitors several late chances to tie.    Gunners goalie Andrew Foster made the last two of his 24 saves in the final 15 seconds to preserve the win.    Uppgren finished with four goals and three assists, and Wood added his three points down the stretch. Nick Wbber (Georgian Court) added a pair for the Gunners. Marty Bowes (Hartford), Nick Shaw (Providence) and Cancian led the Competitors with...
