MENDHAM, NJ - The Roxbury High School boys lacrosse team survived a fourth-quarter onslaught by Mendham on Saturday to emerge the winner of a close game.

The Gaels left the field victors of the 7-6 contest, having entered the fourth quarter leading by what seemed to be a comfortable 6-2 margin. It was a single goal in the final seconds, by Anthony Perhacs, that gave Roxbury the win after Mendham awoke in the quarter to score four goals.

Perhacs scored three of the Gaels' goals and Andrew Christiansen scored two. Matt Dancsecs and Connor Mahoney each had solo goals. Goaltender Brandon Maresca made 12 saves.

The win brings the Gaels' season record to 9-4. They next play Tuesday against Morristown.
