WESTFIELD – The Westfield High School boys’ lacrosse team celebrated a comeback in a big, big way.
Westfield rallied from a late 5-1 second quarter deficit, scoring six of the game’s final eight goals to defeat visiting Amherst Thursday.
“We had a great game,” said Westfield coach Mark Cavallon, whose team at 10-4 has secured a postseason berth.
Matt Lacroix paved the way for the team’s victory, scoring three goals and – with Craig Ward – dominating on face offs. Lacroix scored the game-winner on a fast-break pass from Kevin Papineau 10 seconds into the second overtime.
Westfield outscored the opposition 4-0 in the third quarter.
Ryan Wilson scored two goals for the Bombers, Sam Scarfo and Chris Pray tallied one each, and Matt Chlastawa and Kevin Papineau finished two assists and one, respectively.
Ethan Nassar, Noah Swords, Brian Jensen, Jordan Bein, and Garrett Mathews administered strong Westfield defense. Bombers’ goalie Jake Cupak collected 16 saves.
