MONTVILLE, NJ – The Roxbury High School boys lacrosse team’s dream of becoming champions of Morris County were dashed Saturday as the Gaels were steamrolled 16-4 by Delbarton School of Morris Township.

The top-seeded Green Wave’s dominance during the Morris County Tournament semi-final game was displayed early: Delbarton entered the second quarter with a 7-0 lead. The independent, Catholic, all-boy college-prep school’s players came back to score six more in the next quarter.

In that second period that Roxbury – ranked 19th and the first Gaels lacrosse team to reach the county semifinals – fought back. Roxbury’s Dave Biank broke the ice with a goal that dashed Delbarton’s chances for a shutout. Before the period ended, the Gaels had scored two.

However, the flow did not continue in the third quarter. Although Roxbury defense held the Green Wave to only two points during that frame, the Gaels failed to score any.

The teams went into the final quarter with the score 15-2. Roxbury actually outscored Delbarton in the final period, finding the net twice to Delbarton’s single goal. Roxbury goaltender Wayne Safreed played the whole game and made 10 saves.

In addition to Biank, Roxbury’s Eric D’Arminio, Anthony Perhacs and Zach Poissant each scored single goals. Perhacs had two assists and D’Arminio had one.

Despite the frustrating defeat, Roxbury is still enjoying a spectacular season. The loss to Delbarton is only its second all season, bringing its record to 13-2.

After licking its wounds on Sunday, Roxbury will return to play Monday against Mendham at home.

June 10, 2018

Dear Editor,

As of late, due to most disturbing acts of violence against children in our schools, there is much vigorous debate regarding gun control and protection of our children and grand-children.

Much of the debate is based on emotion rather than reasoned thought.

I think that exploration in three areas needs to be more thoroughly discussed and debated. The first is ...
