ROXBURY, NJ - The Roxbury High School boys lacrosse team beat Pope John 9-2 on a very wet morning May 13 to take home the NJILL Rizk League trophy. The Gaels, with a 6-0 league record, are the only undefeated team in the league. 

The Gaels drew first by netting a goal in the first couple of minutes. But each team’s defense kept the score to a paltry 3-2 going into halftime.

While the defense of Roxbury kept Pope John scoreless for the entire second half, the Gaels offense built up a lead and never looked back scoring six  unanswered goals.

Eric D'Arminio had his second 5-goal game in as many games to reach a season high of 53 goals, coming within one goal of a 100-goal career milestone. He also had 2 assists. Look for D’Arminio to reach this milestone on May 15 when the Gaels are away to take on Kinnelon.  

The other scorers in the game were Matt Dancsecs with three, Paul Shadel, with one goal and two assists, Dave Biank, with two assists and Anthony Perhaps with one assist. 

Wayne Safreed had 11 saves, several of them from point -blank range.

The victory over Pope John followed another important win, the May 11 Senior Night domination over Glen Rock.

Senior Night started with the introduction of seniors Biank (Captain), D'Arminio (Captain), Owen Brooks, Ryan Johnson, Matt Meola, Zach Poissant, Caesar Rubio,  Safreed,  Shadel and Justin Werder. 

The 15-4 victory brought winning back to the team, which had previously suffered a disappointing loss to Mendham.

Glenrock scored first, but that was the last time they held the lead. It was all Roxbury from there on out. The first quarter saw the Gaels up 4-1 and the half ending at 6-3.

The third quarter was all Roxbury as the Gaels scored eight unanswered goals. The fourth quarter didn't produce much for either team. Biank, D'Arminio and Shadel combined for nine of the team’s goals. 

After the game, the seniors were honored with a cake. 

The scorers in the game were D'Arminio, with five goals, Dancsecs, with five goals and one assist, Biank  with two goals and six assists, Shadel with two goals and four assists and Anthony Perhacs with one goal and two assists. 

Safreed had five saves. 

The Gaels next play May 15 against Kinnelon.

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 ...
