The Morse-Boothbay boys lacrosse team defeated Lincoln Academy at home in Bath and lost to Maranacook/Winthrop on the road in recent games.

At home, the team defeated L.A. 9-5, with a first quarter six goals helping to determine the final outcome.

Sophomore goalie Micheal Martin had 13 saves and six clears. Senior Cayden Green had four goals, two assists. Senior Sam Prager had one goal. Senior Lucas Hardwick, junior Drew Meader and freshman Sawyer Wright each scored one goal and had one assist.

“We started off very strong in the first quarter, terrific ball movement,” said coach Jay Paulus. “I liked the point distribution with my starting six players. Game got very physical and scrappy in the third. The fourth quarter we settled back down. We still have much to work on.”

At Maranacook, the home team scored 12 third period goals and posted a 21-4 win.

Goalie Michael Martin had 12 saves and Morse-Boothbay goals were scored by Hardwick, Prager, Green and Meader.

“This wasn't a particularly strong showing by the Shipbuilders; overall flat play, little if at all off ball movement,” said Paulus.
