NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ – You would think that after a 14-3 victory in its home opener that the New Providence boys’ lacrosse team would have been all smiles as they walked towards the locker room. However a satisfied portrayal was absent from the face of junior Jack Harvey and the rest of his teammates.

Despite dismantling a winless Clifton team to move to 4-0 in the early stages of their season, there was a look of determination, like there was more to do.

Harvey, who put in five goals and added five assists, thought the team could have played better.

“We didn’t really play as a team in the beginning,” Harvey said. “Once we came out in the second quarter, I think we started to play as a team, started passing more.”

The Pioneers saw three different players score in the opening quarter, however there were more than three scoring opportunities that New Providence didn’t capitalize on.

In the second, the Pioneers added three more goals to the board, including Harvey’s first, but it was sophomore Quinn Killeen’s last second goal that changed the culture of the game.

Killeen, who finished the game with a hat trick, scored in the final six seconds of the second quarter to take the air out of Clifton’s bench and pump energy into the Pioneers’.

New Providence responded in the third period with their most dominant quarter of the season. Led by four goals and two assists from Harvey, the Pioneers threw up an 8-spot in the third to put the game way out of reach.

“He’s off to a real good start,” New Providence head coach Vinny Carangelo said. “He’s a sniper. He has the potential to not only be a sniper, but also be a distributor. He’s showing signs of that, and if he does more of that, the sky is the limit.”

Harvey’s five goals ties a career-high, which he accomplished three times last year, while his five assists breaks a three-year personal best. Killeen’s hat trick was the second of his career.

Senior James Burke also added three goals in the victory.

The Pioneers are back in action on Thursday when they visit East Brunswick.
