There’s not a whole bunch that can be said about today’s game. The Lancer’s offense was stymied today by the Boston College defense. Defensively BC High was a step ahead of the Lancer offense challenging most every shot with excellent slides. The Lancer defense on the other hand seemed flat, allowing BC’s attackmen to look like All-Americans. All in all I know the 2015 Lancers are a better team than the scored showed today. Monday is another day and another team to prepare for. A bright spot today for the Lancers was their face-off game. Max Stukalin and Colin McClure won 11 out of 18 face-offs, nice job boys. Longmeadow now prepares for Simsbury Monday the 20th of April.
Goals: Issac Chase (1), Max Stukalin (1), Will Lukas (1), Dom Santinello (1).
Asst: Kris Campbell (1), Max Stukalin (1).
Saves: Matt Pierson (7)
LONGMEADOW17 / WEST SIDE 4 4/15/15
An improving LHS squad kicked it into gear in the second half and easily handled West Springfield by a score of 17 to 4 on a beautiful spring day. Coach Campbell took advantage of playing a young West Springfield team and rested many of his starters. Leading the scoring this evening was attackman Kevin Hussey tallying 5 times. Scoring was spread between 10 offensive players. Lancers now prepare for the Amherst Hurricanes Friday night.
Goals: Kevin Hussey (5), Will Lukas (3), Spencer Robbins (2), Dom Santinello (1), Max Stukalin (1), Brian Wiles (1), Noah Skole (1), Sam Byrne (1), Kris Campbell (1), Casey Samuelson (1).

LONGMEADOW 8 / MINNECHAUG 5 4/14/2015
It wasn't pretty, but a win is a win. Leading 4-0 after the 1st period of play the Lancers went into a 2 quarter funk. The 2nd and 3rd quarters were filled with turnovers, penalties, and in general sloppy play. The one bright spot during the game was the Lancer defense. They played smart and physical. There was not one Minnechaug player that was untouched going down the middle. Offensively the Lancer had a bad shooting day scoring 8 times on 33 attempts. Let’s consider today’s game as an off day for the Lancer offense and give the defense their due credit for today’s victory. Next up West Springfield.
Goals: Will Lukas (2), Max Stukalin (2), Matt DeMarche (1), Kris Campbell (1), Dom Santinello (1), Colin McClure (1).
Asst: Max Stukalin (2), Will Lukas (1), Kris Campbell (1), Matt DeMarche (1), Kiernan Mulcahy (1).
Saves: Matt Pierson (7).
LONGMEADOW 9 ALGONQUIN 2 4/11/2015
Finally the season begins! The Lancers entered today’s game with very little pre-season field practice and it showed. The offense started off a bit slow but found some rhythm in the second half. Longmeadow entered half-time with a 3-0 lead. Defensively the Lancers were solid. Joey Fratini and Kiernan Mulcahy kept the crease clear all day, playing extremely physical throughout. Offensively the scoring was spread between 7 different players, Will Lukas leading the way with 3 goals. Max Stukalin and Matt DeMarche dominated ground balls accounting for a combined 9. Next up for the Lancers is Minnechaug.
Goals: Will Lukas (3), Matt DeMarche (1), Dom Santinello (1), Josh Goldberg (1), Connor Ostrander (1), Isaac Chase (1), Kyle Gagne (1).
Assists: Will Lukas (2), Kris Campbell (1), Max Stukalin (1), Dom Santinello (1).
Saves: Pierson (11).
