EAS­TON — Cam­bridge South Dorch­ester High’s boys’ lacrosse team used a third-quar­ter run, and late, clutch goal­tend­ing Mon­day night for a 13-11 vic­tory over Eas­ton.

Jar­rett Bromwell and Cole Wil­ley each scored four goals for the Vik­ings. The duo helped Cam­bridge-SD build a five-goal, fourthquar­ter lead be­fore the War­riors stormed back with a 4-1 run to draw within two in the clos­ing min­utes.

But Vik­ings goalie Ian Pow­ley came through with crit­i­cal saves in the clos­ing mo­ments to pre­serve the win, as Cam­bridge-SD im­proved to 5-1.

“Ian has played great all year,” Vik­ings head coach Steve Hur­ley said. “He is calm in net. If a shot gets by him, he for­gets about it and plays the next one. It is ob­vi­ous when he puts out an ef­fort like that

“Eas­ton is a good team,” Hur­ley added. “They are hard to hold off be­cause they were com­ing strong. It was an ex­cit­ing win for us. I’m proud of the team.”

Bromwell opened the scor­ing in the first minute by driv­ing right and fir­ing a shot into the net. Eas­ton re­sponded with two goals, the first by Mitchell Ree­ley and the sec­ond by Corey Hall (five goals).

Wil­ley teamed with Bromwell and Micah Brooks (three goals) to put Cam­bridge-SD ahead 5-2 late in the first quar­ter.

Wil­ley tied the score at 2-2 with a driv­ing shot from the right. Min­utes later, Bromwell feed Wil­ley for a 3-2 Vik­ings lead. Brooks re­ceived a pass from Wil­ley, curled from the left to the mid­dle and scored for a 4-2 lead.

A face­off win by Kobi Ruark started a break­away for Bromwell who found the net for a 5-2 ad­van­tage.

“Jar­rett and Cole had big games for us,” Hur­ley said. “They are two se­nior lead­ers. They came out big from the start. I’m proud of them.”

Eas­ton (1-3) ral­lied to tie the game at 5-5 with three goals in the fi­nal two min­utes of the quar­ter.

Char­lie Pe­tosa fired a shot from the top for a goal, and Hall added two more.

What looked to be a shootout in the first quar­ter, quickly turned into a de­fen­sive bat­tle in the sec­ond. Each team closed pass­ing and shoot­ing lanes. Play­ers fought for ground balls, look­ing to gain an ad­van­tage.

With 6:07 left in the sec­ond, the Vik­ings gained the up­per hand when Bromwell found a streak­ing Wil­ley for a goal and a 6-5 lead. Bromwell put Cam­bridge-SD up 7-5 when he backed down a de­fender, spun to his right and scored.

With two min­utes left in the half, Eas­ton nearly scored when Chris Gibbs fired a rocket off the post.

On the en­su­ing posses­sion, Con­nor But­ler stole a pass for the War­riors be­hind the Vik­ing goal, passed to Finn Gibbs for an Eas­ton goal and mo­men­tum be­fore half­time.

At the start of the third quar­ter, the War­riors pres­sured Cam­bridge-SD. But­ler curled from be­hind the net and fired a low shot, but Pow­ley made the save.

The Vik­ings cap­i­tal­ized on the new posses­sion when Jake Mor­ris fired a quick pass from the left to Henry Ro­sairo in front of the net for a goal and an 8-6 lead.

A face­off win by Ruark led to a score by Cam­bridge SD 30 sec­onds later when Bromwell found Brooks for a goal. Brooks scored 14 sec­onds later off an­other Ruark face­off win with a no-look back­hand shot for a 10-6 lead. Ruark got his own score three min­utes later to in­crease the Vik­ing lead to 11-6.

“Kobi was big for us win­ning face­offs,” Hur­ley said. “In the third, we got a goal, then he won a face­off and we got an­other goal. Kobi got us rolling on a nice run.”

Hall scored for Eas­ton to cut the lead to 11-7 late in the third, but Bromwell put the Vik­ings ahead 12-7 with 39 sec­onds left in the quar­ter.

Eas­ton then put on a fu­ri­ous rally in the fourth, keep­ing posses­sion for much of the quar­ter.

Gibbs started the rally with a goal. But­ler’s goal trimmed the deficit to 12-9.

Pow­ley fol­lowed by mak­ing two keys saves. The sec­ond came off a steal by But­ler who fired low, but Pow­ley got a stick on the shot, and the ball went just wide of the net.

Hall brought the War­riors within two at the six-minute mark when he drove to the net, and through a Cam­bridge-SD de­fender for a back­handed goal.

“I’m re­ally proud of the guys for not giv­ing up,” Eas­ton head coach Bob Bennett said. “They stayed in the game plan, and played hard. You can­not ask any­more from ath­letes.”

With the War­riors com­ing hard, Wil­ley gave the Vik­ings added cush­ion with a goal to make the score 13-10 with 3:12 re­main­ing.

Eas­ton got back within two when Jake Mor­gan scored to cut the Vik­ing lead to 13-11. Twice in the fi­nal minute, Pow­ley made saves to seal the vic­tory.

Cam­bridge-SD plays its first South divi­sion game Wed­nes­day, April 12, at home against J.M. Bennett. Eas­ton is off un­til April 19 when it hosts Kent County.
