Bronxville Boys Lacrosse Falls in State Semifinals

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – Bronxville High School’s boys lacrosse team wanted to make it just one game further than they did last season when they lost in the state semifinals.

But once again, the Broncos fell to a powerful opponent and fell just short of the Class C state championship game.

Bronxville coach Tim Horgan addressed his team immediately after its 11-2 loss to Shoreham-Wading River at Hofstra University on Wednesday. He reminded his players of what they accomplished and told them to look to next season.

“I told them that twice in a row, we came up one game short of playing the maximum amount of games,” Horgan said. “There’s not many teams that are able to say that. I told them that we graduate four seniors and they’re four very important parts of this team; and I just told the younger guys, remember how this feels. We don’t want to feel this way next year.”

Bronxville’s back-to-back runs to the state semifinals have brought prestige to the program, not just in Westchester, but throughout New York State. Still, Horgan knows his team has the potential to break through the semifinals to that elusive state championship game.

“We’ve been in this game two years in a row, and the boys know what it takes to get here,” Horgan said. “We just haven’t quite found what it takes to get to the next game. So we’re going to keep working it, and hopefully we’ll see these guys again next year.”

Bronxville will lose senior Andrew Walsh - a key piece of the Broncos’ success this season - as well as three other seniors. But the Broncos should have a chance to return to the state tournament, as their sophomores and juniors will return with even more experience.

But until that time comes, Horgan can look back at all that Bronxville accomplished this season.

“We won 20 games. We only schedule 16 to start the season. so when you win 20 and you only start out scheduling 16, it’s a successful season,” Horgan said.
