LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston boys varsity lacrosse team (No. 4 seed) took on the Red Devils of Hunterdon Central High School (No. 5 seed) in the second round of the state tournament on Tuesday, with Hunterdon Central winning, 11-6.

The first quarter brought chaos for the Lancers as they struggled to get shots on goal. Senior midfielder Billy Mandl took multiple, hard shots, but Hunterdon Central goalie Nick Collevehio was unstoppable. The first period ended with Hunterdon Central ahead 5-0, making this the Lancer's first game with a scoreless first period. 

Stellar defense from juniors Ryan Cheeseman and Jonny Schreiber shut down Hunterdon Central in the second quarter, during which they only scored three goals. Livingston got on the board seven minutes into the quarter. Mandl dodged his defenseman at the goalpost and fired a shot into the corner of the net.  Livingston went into halftime with a lone goal; Hunterdon Central held the lead with eight goals.

The Lancers picked up the intensity at the start of the third quarter. Senior Dylan Kruse took control of the draw by coming up with groundballs and making great transitional passes. Junior attackman Max Scher scored the first goal of the quarter, with a great assist from fellow senior attackman Adam Schey. Billy Mandl scored his second goal of the game nine minutes in, giving the Lancers two goals for the third quarter. Despite the increased energy, the quarter ended with a score of 10-3, with Hunterdon Central coming out on top again.

The Lancers outscored the Hunterdon Central Red Devils in the fourth quarter 3-1. Mandl and Scher each had their second goal, and junior attackman Tommy Heller scored his first and only goal of the game. Senior defenseman Jake Karp caused multiple turnovers. And junior midfielder Ryan Chisarick made plays on both the offensive and defensive end. Despite the praiseworthy effort displayed by the Lancers, the Red Devils of Hunderton Central clinched the win with a final score of 11-6.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the season these boys had,” said head coach Brad Dzama. “In this game in particular, the boys gave it everything they had. Even though we didn’t come out with the win, we gave it our all. Advancement to the second round of the State Tournament is a big accomplishment in my eyes.”
