BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The Bronxville High School boys' lacrosse team easily defeated upstate Glens Falls, 15-2, Saturday to earn another shot at the New York State Public Schools Class C title.
They will face Section 11 representative Shoreham-Wading River in the tournament's semifinal round at 3 p.m. Wednesday at Stony Brook College.
"Saturday's win was very important for us a team," Broncos forward Brewster Warble said after scoring three goals in the win. "It meant a lot to all the guys who were on the team last year to get back to the same game we did last June. We came into Saturday fired up and ready to play. Last year, we played Glens Falls in the same round and only beat them 10-8 so we were looking to make a statement."
That "statement" is not quite enough for the Broncos, who hope to win a state title in a sport they haven't won in before by winning just two more games. The 20-1 Broncos, who won their second straight Section 1 (local area) title last Thursday after winning the school's first-ever lacrosse championship last year, lost a tough 9-8 nail biter in the semis last spring.
Jack Grass, Reilly Walsh and Warble each scored three goals for Bronxville in Saturday's regional final win, with Henry Grass chipping in two goals and three assists. Henry Grass and Warble each had three goals to lead the offense in the 12-6 Section 1 title victory versus Hendrick Hudson. The defense has been tight throughout the season, backed by goalie Eric Pass.
"We expect a very competitive game on Wednesday," Warble said. "Shoreham Wading River is a great team with plenty of talent. Our team, especially kids that were on the team last year, wants redemption after last year's lost and we will undoubtedly play our hearts out."
