ROXBURY, NJ – Bolstered by a strong second period - and nearly waylaid by questionable officiating - the Roxbury High School boys Lacrosse team on Monday advanced in the Morris County Tournament by beating Montville 14-10.

Montville, which defeated Parsippany Hills to get into the tournament, scored no goals in the second frame, a fact that made a big difference in the game’s outcome.

The Gaels gave the Mustangs false hope by allowing them to go up 3-1 quickly in the first quarter. Montville’s elation was short-lived as Roxbury’s offense took wing and scored four to end the quarter 4-3.

The Gaels never looked back and netted five unanswered goals in the second quarter, ending the first half 9-3.

The second half of the game was marked by what some observers felt was a series of referee mishaps. At one point, a Gael was on the ground, limped off the field and the referee gave the penalty to Roxbury. This, essentially gave Montville a man-up opportunity and a goal.

Similar questionable calls were made several times in the half, decisions that some felt kept Montville in the game. These included a number of occasions when those watching the game believed the ball was clearly out on Montville, but was given back to the Mustangs.

Despite that, the Gaels managed to win and it was a game that saw Matt Dancsecs reach the 100 goal milestone.

The high scorer was Dave Biank with four goals and two assists. Dancsecs made three goals and two assists. Zach Poissant and Paul Shadel each had two goals. Anthony Perhacs had one goal and three assists. Eric D'Arminio and Ryan Fehsal had one goal apiece.

Roxbury goaltender Wayne Safreed made 11 saves.

Roxbury, now 12-1, takes on Madison at home on Thursday in the second round of the Morris County Tournament.

Necessary Discussion and Debate of Addressing School Violence

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 ...
