ROXBURY, NJ – The Roxbury High School boys lacrosse team today proved that winning face-offs is not absolutely necessary when it comes to winning games. The Gaels beat Mount Olive in a back-and-forth battle that saw six lead changes.

The Marauders were quick to score in the first 1:15 of the first quarter. A minute later the Gaels tied it up, but by the end of the first quarter, the Marauders were up 3-1.

The Roxbury coaches and fans were anticipating a much better start this season than last year because the team retained most of its starters from last year. The coaches were not about to allow the same slaughtering that occurred in last season’s opener when Mount Olive handed the Gaels their worst loss of the season: 11-4.

The Gaels came back in the second quarter and the teams ended the half tied 4-4.

The third quarter saw three lead changes leaving Mount Olive up by 1 goal. Shortly into the final quarter, the Gaels seemed to realize it was then or never; they scored three unanswered goals to go up 9-7.

During the last six minutes of the game, Mount Olive possessed the ball without the Gaels able to get it out of their end. Despite Mount Olive's dominance of the ball and the clock, Roxbury's rock-solid defense allowed only one goal before the clock turned in favor of the Gaels by running out and leaving Roxbury up by one goal. 

In the game, Eric D'arminio had three goals and two assists, Paul Shadel had two goals  and three assists, Dave Biank had two goals, Zach Poissant had one goal and one assist, Grant Dixon had one goal and one assist and Matt Danscecs had one assist. Goalie Wayne Safreed made 13 saves.
