Beverly lacrosse hopes to pick things up where it left off


Senior attack Matt Page and Nick Albano should be able to pick up some of the scoring slack.

Senior defenseman Ty Martz has been starting since freshman year and Pynchon expects him to anchor a strong defense in front of Lally.

Pynchon has also liked what he’s seen so far from sophomore midfielder Jordan Rawding, who saw a lot of action last year as a freshman, and junior midfielder Ian Butler, a big, strong, athletic player who should soften the blow of losing Abate and Flaherty.

Junior long-stick middie Bryan Flaherty, senior defenseman Dylan Jutras, and senior midfielder Nick Donovan are also experienced players Pynchon will count on this season, and there will be a new Abate wearing the Black & Orange this season. Dom’s younger brother Sam, a freshman, has looked good so far.

Pynchon expects the Northeastern Conference schedule to be tougher than ever, which should only help the Panthers’ development.

“I think across the board the conference is going to be much better,” Pynchon said. “Every year the NEC seems to get better and better. A lot of our success is a reflection of how it’s gotten better.”
