Tough Week for Mahopac

MAHOPAC, N.Y.— A two-loss week is tough for any team to swallow, but when you lose both games by a goal, it makes it that much more difficult to take in.

Mahopac’s boys lacrosse team battled back in a low-scoring affair, but fell to host Somers 6-5 on April 11.

Ryan Dugan, who scored a game-high three goals, started the surge when he snuck in backside and shot low and scored to cut the deficit to 6-4 with 5:26 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Dugan scored again just over 30 seconds later as the Indians appeared to take a firm hold of the game’s momentum.

Somers goaltender Tyler Carr, however, made two huge saves from point-blank range with two minutes left as the Tuskers won the groundball battle down the stretch. The Indians weren’t able to get off any shots after that.

For Mahopac, Andrew Evans tallied a goal, an assist, scooped up five groundballs and won 10 out of 15 faceoffs.

Jack Sarfaty added one goal and Mike Argila made 14 saves to keep the Indians in it.

Mahopac also lost to host Suffern, 12-11, on April 13. Evans paced the Indians with four goals, while Dugan added three goals and an assist.

The Indians (1-5) will look to bounce back as they hosted Yorktown on April 18 and will face defending Section 1 Class A champion Lakeland/Panas at home at 1 p.m. on April 22.
