MADISON, NJ - The Dodgers proved fruitful Wednesday afternoon at Ted Monica Stadium with a 12-4 victory against Caldwell in the NJSIAA Tournament Semifinal Round for South Jersey Group 1.

The varsity team really stepped up against Caldwell this time, according to Coach Bryan Armstrong, securing the game in a 12-4 victory. The Dodgers went head to head against Caldwell in their first game of the season and clinched a win by just one point.

Most notable, a stellar defensive performance by long stick middie Michael Kearney who also had two goals, Stephen Esposito, Trevor Jasen and Will Scavone.

Coach Armstrong said his team’s straight-shooting strategy is the reason for their success this year.

An added element and good luck charm for this game as well as the Dodgers last win against West Deptford last Saturday (13-1) the Madison Fourth Grade Junior Boys Lacrosse Team escorted the varsity team onto the field.  

"They asked us to walk the Dodgers out against West Deptford last Saturday and after the team's tremendous win the boys were invited Wednesday," said Fourth Grade Coach Christopher Lutz. Superstition aside, "The team played unbelievable well today," added Lutz.  The Fourth graders has been asked back again for the final game this Saturday. 

"We played well," said Armstrong. “We went out and executed our game plan and the boys played with good energy. Our key to success here is bringing the good energy and sharing the good energy and we went out and played hard.”

“We had a scheme we wanted to run, we kind of knew what we wanted to do defensively and offensively and we were able to execute," added Armstrong.  “We’re as simple as it gets. And I don’t mean that in a bad way. We are vanilla; we do things the right way, and we work hard.”

Madison boys varsity lacrosse goes into Saturday's 12 noon final against Delaware Valley with a 14-3 season record.
