RANDOLPH, NJ- Senior Attackman Luc Swedlund notched the 100th goal of his career, helping to lead Randolph boys lacrosse to an 11-7 win over Glen Rock on Saturday Apr. 15. 

“Surprisingly I just wanted to get it over with early in the game so we could focus more on winning,” said Swedlund.  “But it's incredible to accomplish that great milestone. I couldn't have done it without the help of my brothers on the team.”

One of those who helped is junior Max Pinilis, the Rams leading assist man so far this season.  Pinilis flipped a short pass to Swedlund at the right side of the net, and Swedlund’s shot turned out to be the milestone goal.

“Max did a great job finding me; we had talked about trying to exploit that wing,” said Swedlund.  “He rolled up with it and found me on the back door, and from there I went off stick hip on the goalie. My dad described it as a typical ‘Luc Goal’, great way to get that as my 100th.”

Pinilis, who finished the game with five goals and two assists, is tied with Swedlund for the team scoring lead at 26 total points ( 14 goals and 12 assists ).  Swedlund has amassed 20 goals and six assists.

After Pinilis gave the Rams a 2-0 lead, Glen Rock tied it up.  Swedlund then netted career goal numbers 99 and 100 to push the Rams ahead at 4-2.  Randolph held a 6-3 halftime lead, but Glen Rock stormed out  of the gate in the third, and tied the game with three quick goals in a few short minutes.

The Rams answered right back with three of their own, to push the lead back to three at 9-6, before closing it out in the fourth for a final of 11-7.

“We just tried to stay patient on offense and find our looks,” said Swedlund.  “We forced the ball a couple times early in the 2nd half, but we did a great job finding open guys and settling down. We got a couple great saves from Scott too, and the defense had our back.”

Swedlund finished with three goals three goals and three assists, while Dom Scali added two goals. Matt Holland registered a goal to go along with his three assists, and Scott Kimiecik made 12 saves in goal.

“Not only is Luc Swedlund a great player for us, but he is a great person,” said coach John Naslonski.  “He is a leader on the field both by his words and his actions.  One thing I notice about Luc is that he is accountable for his own actions. When he does something wrong or makes a mistake, he doesn't make excuses. He owns up to it. This is a direct reflection on his upbringing and other coaches who have influenced him.”

The Rams record now stands at 5-2 on the season, and confidence is riding high. 

“Guys are starting to play very well together, and when they play within themselves they do great,” said Naslonski.  “Sometimes they stray from the game plan and things go ar ray. The two games we lost we had many mental lapses, but we lost to good teams.  As we get more game experience we will be able to compete with them.”

Next up is Hillsborough on Monday at 4:30 at home, and Mt. Olive at home on Thursday 4pm.
