Last Friday, the Kearsarge boys lacrosse team faced off against Plymouth for the state division three quarter-finals.
The second seeded Kearsarge Cougars hosted the seventh ranked Plymouth Bobcats. Kearsarge coming in with a regular season record of 12 and 3 were expected to have a somewhat easy time beating 10 and 5 Plymouth but the Bobcats didn’t get the memo as Plymouth scored just 11 second into the game and then again 15 second later.
Before Kearsarge could do anything, they were in a hole, down 3 to 0. Lucas Muzzey scored the cougars first goal with 3 minutes left in the opening quarter. By halftime, Plymouth held a 6 to 3 lead.
During halftime, Kearsarge head coach Zach Matthews attempted to build up his team’s energy which then translated into the cougars scoring three unanswered goals in the third. By the end of the quarter Plymouth was able to score a pair of their own to take an 8 to 6 lead going into the fourth.
This two goal lead was too much for Kearsarge to overcome as they would end up losing 9 to 7 which ended the cougars very successful season. Plymouth head coach as well as three plymouth players spoke to YCN after the game.
Kearsarge’s head coach also gave YCN his thoughts.
Plymouth moves on to the semi-finals and will face off against sixth seeded Pelham tomorrow at Laconia High School.
