Varsity boys lacrosse defeats rival EGR 14-7

On Wednesday night, the varsity boys lacrosse team took on rival EGR and won convincingly with a final 14-7 score. The Rangers had a tough start to the game and had to battle their way back as the Pioneers came out hot and the Rangers’ defense struggled to execute. Junior goalie Jack Nolan, despite not a lot of support off the bat, played exceptionally and was a huge part of the Rangers’ success.

In the first quarter, EGR scored 2 quick goals. Then junior Tate Hallock scored the first FHC goal, making the score at the end of the first quarter 1-2. During the second quarter, the Rangers came out much improved. On the defensive end, Jack Nolan and the defense let in just 2 more goals. The offense also came alive to score 5 goals in the second quarter, making the halftime score 6-4.

In the third quarter, the Rangers kept the intensity up and continued to finish their chances on offense. Senior Bryce Clay was key for the offense, while senior Andy Trapp shut down the Pioneers on defense. Sophomore middie defender Chris Junkunc also supported the defense and only let a few EGR players make it into the box. This high intensity gameplay from FHC through the last three quarters created the final score of 14-7.

Leading scorers of the game were Tate Hallock with 6, Bryce Clay with 4, senior Tobey Hendricks with 3, and junior Luke Majick with 1.

The Rangers look ahead to Orchard Lake St. Mary’s at home on Saturday to defend their 6-0 season.
