ROXBURY, NJ - The Roxbury High School boys lacrosse team easily beat Randolph 12-3 in the quarterfinals of the North Jersey Group 3 state tournament sectionals on Saturday, giving its coach his 100th career win in the process.

The credit for the victory goes to the defense as much as the offense. The Gaels' defenders kept Randolph scoreless in the first half while the offense racked up seven goals. 

Roxbury's offense was lead by senior and captain Dave Biank, who broke the 100-points-per-season threshold with six goals and one assist. The rest of the scoring came from a slew of teammates. Matt Dancsecs had two goals and one assist, Eric D'Arminio had a goal and three assists, Anthony Perhaps and Zach Poissant each had a goal and an assist, Ryan Fehsal had a goal and Paul Shadel had three assists.

Goaltender Wayne Safreed made six saves.

The 18-3 Gaels next take on Princeton on Wednesday at home.
