Livingston Boys Lacrosse Falls to Montclair in State Tourney


LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston Lancers boys' lacrosse team suffered an early First Round exit in the State Tournament at the hands of Montclair, 9-8, at home on Saturday.

Coming into the game, the Lancers were on a two game skid and looking to start off the State Tournament with a win. Unfortunately, the effort displayed by the Livingston squad was just not enough, resulting in a one goal loss.

The game began with a goal by Montclair less than a minute in. Livingston, however, answered right back with two goals of their own in the first quarter. Senior Jacob Pollack went down with a head/neck injury in the early stages of the game, but was able to return. Despite fighting off the pain, it appeared that Pollack was never able to revert back to his explosive form.

At the half, the Lancers took a 6-4 lead over the Mounties, but the narrow lead was quickly erased during the third quarter. Montclair was able to reel off four unanswered goals, three of those came within a one minute span.

"It was definitely a momentum shifter," Livingston head coach Brad Dzama said. "We were able to keep our heads up and fight right back."

Despite Livingston's third quarter lapse, the Lancers came back to tie the game heading into the fourth. Montclair found the back of the net early in the quarter and were able to maintain the one-goal lead for the remainder of the game. Livingston found themselves with plenty of opportunites to tie the game, but they were unable to capitalize. 

The 9-8 loss ends Livingston's season, but Dzama said the seniors are leaving the program in a great state.

"They've [the Seniors] done so much for our program," Dzama said.  "Its bittersweet."

Lancer sophomore Tommy Heller said that he's excited and proud that Livingston will be able to compete with great programs like Montclair in the future.

"We will have a very successful season next year, but I'm upset to see the seniors go," Lancer sophomore Tommy Heller said.  

The Livingston Lancers closed the season with record of 12-8.

On the other side of the ball, Montclair improves their record to 9-9 and moves on to the second round. They travel to Ridge on Tuesday night.
