EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Both the younger girls and the older girls of East Brunswick's Blackhawks Lacrosse Teams played against Brick Township yesterday.  
 
The older girls team defeated South Brunswick, 9-7, with Alexandra Walsh earning five goals during the game at Heavenly Farms. The younger girls' team lost to Brick 5 to 6. The girls are being coached by George Walsh and Jim Farrell -- younger girls and Sydney Contrino (older girls). The team is managed by Denise Contrino. "I am very proud of the program and the progress my child has made and this is directly due to the effort Denise has put into the program -- not to mention the great coaching! It is a great group of parents as well. We have become a family. The girls have come a long way and the practice they put into the game (2-3 times per week) is really starting to show on the field, " said Ronni Walsh, team parent. 
 
According to the team website, Blackhawks Lacrosse is "open to Boys in Grades K through 8 and Girls in Grades 3 through 8 who live in East Brunswick, and surrounding towns that do not have their own lacrosse club.  We are a recreational lacrosse program that prides itself on teaching the game of lacrosse for those that want to go on to play in high school and then college. All of our players are instructed on the game and have equal time in game situations on the field. Our game season runs from March to June with practice and games at the Heavenly Farms turf fields off of Dunhams Corner Road in East Brunswick NJ."
