Breaking News: New Nor'easter's Heavy Snow, Strong Winds Could Cause Power Outages

Banged Up McMahon Boys Lacrosse Falls to Greenwich

NORWALK, Conn. – The Brien McMahon boys lacrosse team could have been called “the walking wounded” in Tuesday’s game against Greenwich. Four of the Senators top players—Zack Bartolo, Ryan Scott, Drew D’Antonio and Henry Todd—were either out or played hurt in Tuesday’s sloppy 9-7 loss to Greenwich.

The Senators’ players looked like they did not know each other, tossing away dozens of errant passes right into the laps of the Cardinals. McMahon did not do itself any favors on offense, racking up nine unforced turnovers in Greenwich territory.

“I don’t have the kids I want to have out there right now. It takes more than a day or two to put new kids in there and have them learn an offense we’ve had for quite a while,” McMahon head coach Mike Epstein said. “It’s frustrating, but they’re trying.”

McMahon’s goalie, Josh Miller, was the biggest reason why the Senators were able to stay within striking distance of the Cardinals. The sophomore phenom stopped 17 Greenwich shots, including four in a scoreless third quarter.

As sloppy as McMahon’s play was, Damien Vega kept giving the Senators hope with a hat trick on the evening. He cut the Greenwich lead to 7-6 with 6:41 to play, but that was as close as McMahon could get.

Greenwich junior Alex Moeser scored or assisted on the Cardinals final four goals of the game. He netted back-to-back unassisted goals in a span of less than two minutes after Vega’s goal to quash any thoughts of a McMahon comeback.

“I give Greenwich credit. They did what they needed to do and we had trouble in the offensive zone,” Epstein said. “We’ll get back to work.”

D’Antonio, playing with a leg injury, still managed to lead the Senators with four goals and three assists. Todd managed an assist despite a back injury. Scott played through injuries as well, but saw very limited time on the field.

The schedule does not get any easier for McMahon, as the Senators open a four-game road trip at second-ranked Ridgefield on Saturday. That game is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Tiger Hollow Stadium.
