The Masconomet boys lacrosse team finally got the chance to get outside on Saturday when the Chieftains played BC High in the first game of the season.
Masco ultimately fell 7-6 to the Eagles after BC High scored the game-winner with just under three minutes left in the game.
“We’ve beaten them once in the four or five years we’ve played them, but we were in that game the whole way,” said Masco (0-1) head coach Tom Cobb. “To be inside for two weeks besides one scrimmage, I thought the guys played well for their first game.”
The Eagles led 3-0 after one but Masco cut the lead to 4-3 at the half and 6-5 at the end of the third before tying it in the fourth quarter.
Cam Jung and Harry Cwik had two goals each while Max Craig and Tom Cashin each had one goal.
Long poles Corey Tines and Aidan Sears were solid in covering BC High’s top two attackers aided by defensive midfielders Kevin Gilbert and Steve Pease.
Junior goalie Johnathan Schiff made nine saves.
