WESTFIELD – Despite being shorthanded and playing in less-than-ideal weather conditions, the St. Mary High School boys’ lacrosse team showed its resilience Friday.
Padraig Smith had seven goals and three assists to lead the charge for St. Mary in an 18-12 loss to Granby at Boardman Field. In just his second start in net, Saints’ goalie Jeremy Hoar made 23 saves.
St. Mary played without four starters due to various circumstances Friday.
While Granby used a pair of seven-goal quarters to build a 14-4 halftime lead, St. Mary outscored the opposition 8-4 over the second half.
Sam LaBombard and Aaron Blanchard each finished with two goals and two assists for St. Mary. Saints’ Ed Towers (3 assists) and Reilly Siart (1 goal, 2 assists) also contributed offensively.
