Westwood's mens lacrosse club took home the victory against the Portsmouth, Rhode Island team in its first home game of the 2012 season.
Editor's Note: The following was submitted by Aged Wood goalkeeper John Hauck.
The Olde Dogs of Portsmouth, Rhode Island looked to slow down the tempo of the game right from the start, as a robust AWLC sideline was ready to play last night.
After forcing an early turnover, AWLC went right to work led by attack John Isaf with (3 goals, 2 assists) the team quickly established control.
There were some initial concerns with a number of players unavailable to play (Mike McInnis and John Mahoney) and some others on injured reserve Eric Deehan, Bill Stewart, Gordon Green and Dennis Grieco. The defense lead by Scott Lanciloti, Jim McGowan and Larry "The Squirrel" Klaff stepped up and got help from Rob Malster, John Hauck as well as rookie Chip Topjian who saw his first action. Ted Duffy, another AWLC rookie, was in the net for his first showing and played a solid game.
The offense continued to pound away at the visitors with over 40 shots. AWLC had a balanced attack with goals coming from eight different players including two each from Bill Greene and Dave Krumsiek.
Jeremy Nodelman an AWLC rookie and Charlie Brind tallied their first goals of the season. The attack did a great job with ball control and the scoring was rounded out by Karl Langmuir, Paul DeMaio and Eric Arnold with a goal each to make it a 12-3 AWLC win.
The team travels to Chelsea next Monday, June 2, for a 7 p.m. game against the Stale Blue Donuts. AWLC was formed in 2011 and this is a rematch of the club's first game, which they won 11-3.
AWLC is now 2-0 in the Old New England Lacrosse League (O.N.E.L.L.).
