The boys lacrosse team defeated Peninsula High School on Tuesday, extending its overall record to 3-0. 

The first quarter ended 3-2, narrowly in favor of the Wolverines, but they broke away in the second, pouring in seven goals to the Panthers’ one. The squad continued to maintain its lead for the remainder of the match, scoring five goals in the third quarter and three goals in the fourth, resulting in an 18-7 victory. 

Goalie Rohan Mehta ’23 said he was very pleased with the win and attributed it to the team’s cohesion and mutual support for one another.

“Whether on the field or on the bench, everyone had each other’s back,” Mehta said. “I think that was the largest factor that contributed to our win, which was our largest of the season.”

Despite a relatively even first quarter, Mehta said the flow of the game shifted in the Wolverines’ favor in the very next one.

“We had a run of goals in the second quarter that really set the tone of the rest of the game,” Mehta said. “It was a good turnaround, given our slow start.”

The Wolverines face off against rival Loyola High School next on April 20, and Mehta says the squad will have to be at their best to emerge victorious.

“They’re a great team and have great players, so we will need to play as a team and a unit,” Mehta said. “We’re at our best when everyone is getting the ball in their sticks.”
