Roxbury Boys Lacrosse: Undefeated in Division


ROXBURY, NJ - The Roxbury boys lacrosse team finished undefeated in NJAC Freedom Division competition today by defeating its Kittatinny rivals with an 18-2 trouncing.

Having clinched the division on Saturday, the Gaels showed up ready to play hard, displaying a fullisade of scoring that brought another win to their impressive season. They left the field in Hampton Township brandishing an 11-2 season record.

Today's scoring was like a who's who of 2015 Roxbury boys bacrosse. Even though the second half was composed of a mix of both varsity and JV players, the goals kept racking up. By game's end there were 10 Roxbury players who had at least one goal and one player, Chris Snowe, who had five. 
The Roxbury defense was on its game as usual and deserved a lot of the credit for taking Kittatinny out of the game.  
"I'm just happy we played well, stayed healthy and took care of business," said Roxbury Boys Lacrosse Coach Chris Blough. "It's great for us as a team and as a program to finish up a divisional schedule unbeaten." 
In a tweet about 45 minutes after the game, Kittatinny lacrosse coach Gordon Galloway was gracious. Gaels lacrosse "is a strong, well coached team," he said. "We're very proud of our KRHS effort, but y'all had too much for us to handle this year."
Todays Scorers: 

Chris Snowe - five goals
Matt Dansecs  - two goals and one assist
Matt Fiebel - two goals and one assist 
Chris Dacey - two goals
Dave Biank - one goal and three assists
Eric D'arminio - one goal and one assist
