ROXBURY, NJ - As the Roxbury High School boys lacrosse team gears up for the second round of Morris County Tournament competition on Tuesday, its players can look to Saturday for inspiration.

In a game that looked very bleak for the Gaels that morning, Roxbury came back to beat Sparta, a team it hasn't managed to overcome in many years. Some suggest the Saturday victory could actually be the Gaels' first ever defeat of the wily Spartans.

But it wasn't just the victory that is likely bolstering the Gael players' confidence. It was the toughness displayed during the contest.

Sparta went up 6-1 soon into the second quarter. but that did not deter the Gaels. Roxbury tightened its defense to get the ball back while the offense became more aggressive and took advantage of many fast break opportunities. By the time half-time arrived, the Gaels were up 9-7. 

However, the second half started off with two very quick goals by the Spartans. The Gaels defense then tightened up and the offense did its part, putting four more into the net.

Despite two goals being taken away from Roxbury by the referees, the team still managed to come out the winner, bringing its record to 11-1. 

The high scorer was Paul Shadel with six goals on the day made partly possible by his long-time teammate Dave Biank. Dave reached his 200th total career point in the game, making it likely he will surpass his brother, who graduated Roxbury High School with a career high of 205 points.

This game's other high scorer was Matt Danscecs with four goals and three assists. Eric D'Arminio had two goals, Biank had one goal and five assists and Anthony Perhacs and Ben Palanchi each scored one. 

The second round Morris County Tournament battle against Montville takes place at 4 p.m. Tuesday at Roxbury High School.
