    Lacrosse vs. Woodstock (home)

    The Darrow lacrosse team notched its first victory of the season in a 9-5 win over visiting Woodstock Day School at Hempstead Memorial Field. This win was a true across-the-board team effort, with starters and back-ups all contributing energetically to the team’s execution on the field and the successful final outcome. Sophomore goalkeeper Jared had another excellent outing between the pipes, notching multiple saves and initiating clears with his trademark confidence and speed. Darrow’s goal production came from senior captain and attackman Luke, with six goals, fellow senior captain and midfielder Sam, with two, and freshman attackman Charley, with the first goal of his Darrow career. Darrow’s offense in this game was bolstered by the dominance of the team’s midfield unit, particularly center middies Sam and Leo ‘18, in controlling the majority of faceoffs throughout the game. The team now looks to carry the momentum of this win, together with the valuable game experience gained by every player on the team, into the season's remaining matches.

    Lacrosse vs. Marvelwood (away)

    Darrow came out firing on all cylinders in this game, jumping out to a 4-1 lead at the end of the first quarter, and holding a 6-4 lead at the half. However, Darrow was not able to hold onto its lead in the second half as the Marvelwood offense began to find the back of the Darrow goal, ending in a final score of 8-15. Goalkeeping duties were split by Felix ‘18 and Jared ‘16, both of whom had solid outings between the pipes. Darrow’s scoring came from senior captain and attackman Luke with five goals, senior captain and midfielder Sam with one, Jared (playing midfield in the first half prior to his stint in goal) with one, and freshman attackman Charley, with what may have been the most beautiful goal scored by Darrow thus far this season, set up by a picture perfect assist from Jared. A definite highlight of the game defensively was the determined and exciting play of Vincent ‘18 and Tony ‘17 as long-stick middies. They gave Darrow a defensive edge in faceoff situations, and showed tremendous energy and intensity every minute they were on the field. Darrow's defense played solidly and cohesively, and featured several exciting upfield clearing runs by senior captain Louis and sophomore Jeffrey. As Coach Villinski told the team, the first half of this game was the best lacrosse the team has played all season, and despite the final outcome, this game bodes well for the continuing growth and success of the team.

    Lacrosse vs. Kildonan (home)

    The Darrow lacrosse team began its final week of regular-season play auspiciously, earning a 7-4 win over visiting Kildonan in the two schools’ first ever lacrosse match-up. This game was an invaluable opportunity for Darrow's less experienced players to log a lot of playing time, allowing them to build their confidence, skills, and tactical knowledge in a game environment. A major highlight of the match was the offensive success of three players new to lacrosse and/or Darrow: freshman attackman Charlie (one goal), sophomore midfielder Heron (his first three Darrow career goals), and junior midfielder Logan (two goals). Senior captain and attackman Luke added one goal, as well as contributing some skilled playmaking to set up his teammates with shooting opportunities. Senior goalkeeper Felix ably anchored the defense, stopping multiple Kildonan shots and displaying good field sense with his clearing. All in all, this game was a strong performance and a valuable learning opportunity that strengthened the Darrow roster by getting the team’s back-up players more comfortable and confident on the field. Darrow now prepares for its final regular-season game at home against Storm King, hoping to improve on a very competitive 7-11 loss earlier in the season and close out its regular season with one more win.

    Lacrosse vs. Storm King (home)

    Darrow Lacrosse’s 2018 Senior Day was made even more celebratory by a long overdue and hard-fought 11-7 victory over the visiting Cougars of Storm King School. Given Darrow’s record against Storm King - over Darrow's last nine games against Storm King, over the past five seasons, Darrow came close several times but had not won a game, being outscored 30-105 - this win was truly a historic one for the Darrow Lacrosse program. Senior Day began with the team’s eight senior players leading the team to the field in the traditional pre-game silent processional, leading the team’s warm-up, acting as honorary game captains, and starting the game at their respective positions. These eight seniors, including captains Sam, Louis and Luke, played the majority of the game, and provided a backbone of skill, composure and determination that set the standard for the entire team’s play during the game. Senior goalkeeper Felix had another strong outing, notching fifteen saves and initiating nine successful clears out of eleven opportunities. Darrow’s scoring came from senior attack Luke with six goals, senior midfielder Sam with three, senior attack Maddie with one, and senior midfielder Leo with his first Darrow career goal. While the team’s senior contingent carried the brunt of this game, every member of the team contributed to this victory. In a game that became quite intense and heated at points, the Darrow players maintained their poise and sportsmanship on the field throughout. Darrow now begins preparations for postseason play, with a league semi-final match away against Marvelwood on Monday.

    Lacrosse vs. Marvelwood (HVAL away)

    In an HVAL league semi-final match on the road against Marvelwood, the Darrow lacrosse team delivered a staunch and worthy effort everywhere on the field from beginning to end of the game, but was unable to breach the Marvelwood defense, falling short by a final score of 0-13. Even though Darrow was ultimately unable to find the back of the Marvelwood net, the team never let down in its intensity, playing with focus and energy right to the final horn. As with prior games this season, the Darrow players again demonstrated their versatility, enthusiasm, and team focus by quickly and efficiently making numerous position adjustments during the game. One auspicious highlight of the game was several excellent scoring opportunities that reflected the improvement in Darrow’s cutting and feeding game, with sophomore midfielder Andy, sophomore attack Calvin, junior attack Jocelyn, and senior captain Louis, normally a mainstay of our defensive back line but playing attack in the final quarter of the game, all coming close to scoring off perfectly-placed assists from teammates. Sophomore goalkeeper Jared turned in a solid performance between the pipes for the first three quarters, with multiple saves and aggressive, heads-up clearing. Senior goalkeeper Felix took over in goal for the fourth quarter to close out the game and his Darrow career. Despite wrapping up the season with a loss, the spirit, comradery, and enthusiasm of the team all remain strong, and there's already excited talk about what the 2019 season will hold.
