Boys Lacrosse: Cedar Grove Celebrates Its Seniors


CEDAR  GROVE, NJ - While it didn't end in a win, Cedar Grove still battled hard against Park Ridge and celebrated its seniors Erik Kriegsman and Vasili Cook on senior night Thursday.

Alex and Nick LoPresti each scored two goals in the game, but the Panthers fell to Park Ridge 8-4.  Peter Johnson had two assists and Jordan Amati tacked on one.  Goalie Andrew Candino had 10 saves.

"I feel as if we were too inconsistent at times, there were moments where we played great and there were moments where we could have done better, but overall I am happy with our performance," said coach David Bucchino. "Wherever we are seeded with for states, we just need to come out hard and be consistent with our effort for however long the game takes. I'm always telling my guys to never stop playing no matter who you're playing against."

The senior night game was the Panthers final regular season match up.  They now wait to see where they are seeded in the NJSIAA State Tournament.  Being a first year varsity program, this will be Cedar Grove's first-ever trip to the state tourney if they are seeded in the top 16 for their conference.  Seedings will be released on Monday.  

As the first varsity season comes to an end, Bucchino said Senior Night was a great way to celebrate their first varsity season.  

"It was fantastic to see the seniors getting recognized especially with all the hard work they put in the season. Eric Kriegsman played all over the place for us and he didn't ask any questions about it, he was just willing to help out the team anyway he could,"  Bucchino noted.  "The same goes for Vasili Cook. We put him at the face off position due to his competitive and successful wrestling background and it ended up being a great fit for him and the team. Both players were an great asset. I'm thankful for the amount of work the parents put into the senior game to make it a memorable one for them."
