It was a breezy Wednesday evening, in Longmeadow  with many Longmeadow youth players and fans cheering on the Lancers against the always tough St. John’s of Srewsberry team. The Lancers go into halt-time with a 6-2 lead and all was good.  During the 2nd half the Lancers offense sputtered and with 4 minutes left in the game the Lancers now trailed 6-7. The game would soon become knotted on a superb move by Will Lukas, the junior captain dodged hard from X and with the quickest of insides spins found an opened and scores the tying goal with 3:10 left in the game. The game would go into OT and with just 2.5 seconds left in the game it was Captain Will Lukas sprinting from X and scoring the game winner

April vacation has not gotten off to a great start for the Lancers who just dropped their second game in two days.  After playing a sloppy first half and finding themselves tied at 4-4 you’d think they would be able to pull away from Simsbury in the second half, but not so.

LONGMEADOW 4 / BOSTON COLLEGE HIGH 11                4/19/2015

There’s not a whole bunch that can be said about today’s game.  The Lancer’s offense was stymied today by the Boston College defense. Defensively BC High was a step ahead of the Lancer offense challenging most every shot with excellent slides. The Lancer defense on the other hand seemed flat, allowing BC’s attackmen to look like All-Americans. All in all I know the 2015 Lancers are a better team than the scored showed today. Monday is another day and another team to prepare for. A bright spot today for the Lancers was their face-off game. Max Stukalin and Colin McClure won 11 out of 18 face-offs, nice job boys. Longmeadow now prepares for Simsbury Monday the 20th of April.

Goals: Issac Chase (1), Max Stukalin (1), Will Lukas (1), Dom Santinello (1).

It wasn't pretty, but a win is a win. Leading 4-0 after the 1st period of play the Lancers went into a 2 quarter funk.  The 2nd and 3rd quarters were filled with turnovers, penalties, and in general sloppy play. The one bright spot during the game was the Lancer defense. They played smart and physical. There was not one Minnechaug player that was untouched going down the middle. Offensively the Lancer had a bad shooting day scoring 8 times on 33 attempts. Let’s consider today’s game as an off day for the Lancer offense and give the defense their due credit for today’s victory.  Next up West Springfield.
