video: Algonquin Boys and Girls Advance to State Lacrosse Championship

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

 

For the first time in school history, Algonquin Regional High School will send both of its lacrosse teams to the state finals. The girls started things off with a thrilling come-from-behind win over Longmeadow. The rain drenched Algonquin comeback was capped by All American Carly O'Connell's fifth goal of the game, giving the Tomahawks a 10-9 victory. The win will send the Algonquin girls to their first state championship game, and make them the first Central Mass school to ever make it that far.

The boys took the field next in what was also a rainy affair, and rode another one of their trademark second half surges to knock off Minnechaug 11-6. The score was tied at halftime, but senior goalie Giles Ober allowed only one goal in the second half, and All American Conor Healy's five-goal, four-assist performance pushed the Tomahawks into their second consecutive state championship game.

Check out the highlights above.
