RANDOLPH, NJ- It was an emotional night for parents and players alike at Randolph’s varsity lacrosse game on Sat. May 10.  The Rams celebrated senior night, honoring those players who were playing what will most likely be their final home game in a Randolph uniform.

In a pre game ceremony, each senior was introduced and had a few words said about them.  Also taking part in the ceremony was the Randolph recreation lacrosse program.  The youth players from second grade on up formed a tunnel for the Varsity team to run through onto the field.  At half time the second graders played a short game to entertain the crowd.  The smallest Randolph Lax-ers put on quite a show, drawing many cheers from the crowd with some exciting play and impressive scoring efforts.

The game started out with Oratory jumping on the Rams early, grabbing two quick goals.  Randolph struck back with two of their own, to tie the game at two apiece at the end of one quarter.  In the second the teams traded goals, with JP Southren getting both for Randolph, as the half ended with the game knotted up at four.

Oratory made a strong push out of the gate in the third, pulling ahead 8-5, with the Rams lone goal coming from Jake Southren off a nice feed from brother JP.  Oratory got the first two in the fourth, and seemed to have the game in hand with a 10-5 lead.  However, on senior night, the Rams still had some fight in them as they battled back with a furious rally in the last seven minutes of the game.

With Jesse Bush winning virtually every faceoff, the Rams controlled play and the ball.  A nice goal by speedy sophomore Brian Gleeson lit a fire under Randolph.  Seniors Mike Turner and T.J. Lindquist netted a goal apiece, and the game was 10-8 with a bit over two minutes left.  The Rams continued to attack and had two golden opportunities in the final minute.  The Post saved Oratory from another JP Southren goal, and Jake Southren was robbed of a goal by a great point blank save, as the game ended 10-8 Oratory.

Goalie Matt Carle had 7 saves on the game for Randolph

They say that campaign signs don’t vote in an election. However, I was distressed when I saw a particularly misleading sign in my hometown. I am concerned that it might mislead voters on June 5th into thinking that the candidate with the sign “Re-Elect Hirniak“ on it,  is for a candidate who is an incumbent currently on the town council. This is not the ...
