RANDOLPH, NJ- Randolph High School boys’ lacrosse team took on Madison Thursday May 11, home at DaSilva field.  The Dodgers of Madison came in ranked 19th in the state, boasting a 10-2 record on the season.

Randolph went down 1-0 very early with a goal from Madison right off the first faceoff.  Randolph quickly settled down, and tied up the game with a goal from Senior LSM Dylan Minihane.  Madison added one more goal to make the score 2-1 at the end of an action packed first quarter.

The game quickly turned into a defensive battle, and although both teams desperately tried to get an edge, great defense all over the field kept the game low scoring.  Neither team was able to muster much offense, as both teams put in one goal to make the score 3-2 Madison going into halftime.

The third quarter is where Randolph caught their stride and got going on both ends of the field. Madison scored the first goal of the quarter, but that was all they could get.

Randolph battled back with help from their goalie Scott Kimiecik who finished the game with 11 saves, and finally got it going on offense with two goals from Matt Holland and one from Max Pinilis.

At the end of the third the score was 5-4 Rams, and Randolph had all the momentum.  The Fourth was all Randolph, and the win seemed inevitable until the final two minutes, when Madison tied the game 5-5 to send it to overtime.

In Overtime, Kimiecik made a crucial save to keep Randolph alive, and give his team a chance to win.  After a timeout, Randolph’s Max Pinilis scored the game winner to give Randolph an exciting, confidence building win against a Top 20 opponent.

Holland led the Rams with four points on two goals and two assists, while Pinilis had three points with two goals and an assist. Brandan Sukert also added a goal for the Rams.

Randolph’s next game will be the first round of the state playoffs against Mt. Olive on Wednesday, May 17 at home.
