Postseason wrap up: ARHS Lacrosse falls to top seed powerhouse Longmeadow in Finals

Algonquin’s spring sports came to an end this weekend when Boys Lacrosse lost their division finals.

The boys should still be walking tall for their performance this year. The, a blog dedicated to covering the team, posted:

Algonquin Regional boys’ lacrosse went the furthest of any local Division 2 team this postseason, but under the second-year Central/West format, it meant that the Tomahawks still had to go through the Western Mass. powers.

After overcoming 2014 district finalist Westfield in the district semifinals, the T-Hawks ran into a buzz saw in top-seeded Longmeadow on Friday night at West Springfield High, falling, 15-9.

The Community Advocate also covered the game action and reaction from their coach: 

Algonquin struck first with a goal by Michael Tascione early in the first quarter, but Longmeadow responded with four goals in the first quarter, on their way to a 7-3 halftime lead. Mike Martens, Alex Sabel and Zach Skowronek each scored twice for the Tomahawks. Paul Luongo netted one goal, as did Justin Stassi, who scored the final goal with just 1.6 seconds remaining in the game.

After the game, Tomahawks head coach Rich Luongo described the team as “the best group of seniors he’s ever coached. The whole team really came together as a family this year.” He continued, “The team played really well today but you just can’t play catch-up with a team like Longmeadow.”
