11 goal night in 16-13 winner-take-all game over PrimeTime
Bryce Serriello scored a Boston Box Lacrosse League single-game record 11 goals as the Minutemen earned the fourth and final playoff spot with a 16-13 win over PrimeTime at South Shore Sports Center in Hingham on Jan. 31.
The Minutemen jumped out to a 4-0 lead over the first four minutes, and Serriello answered PrimeTime’s first goal with two of his own to complete a hat trick, extending the lead to 6-1 seven minutes into the half. Serriello answered each of Prime Time’s next three goals, completing his sock trick – his sixth score of the game – with a shorthanded score off a head-man pass from Patrick Egan. When Matt McIver netted a Nick Gorrasi feed, the Minutemen took a 10-5 lead to the break.
PrimeTime clawed its way back into the game with three scores to open the second half, however, two assisted by Brandan Grant -- who keyed PrimeTime’s comeback all night, finishing with eight helpers – only to see Serriello score the next three goals to re-establish the lead at five with 10 minutes remaining in regulation.
Down the stretch, Ken Keirstead scored twice off of Grant feeds, helping PrimeTime close the gap to 15-13 with 1:14 remaining, but the ensuing faceoff wound up on the stick of Serriello, who netted it for his 11th goal of the game, making the final 16-13.
With the win, the Minutemen actually tied PrimeTime in the standings,...
