The East Hampton boys lacrosse team, which features a handful of Pierson players, picked up wins in its first two games, following a 12-7 win over Longwood on March 18 with a 15-9 victory over North Babylon last Thursday, March 20.
Pierson’s Jack Schleicher had three goals and three assists and Drew Harvey scored three goals and had five assists to lead the Bonackers over Longwood. Jack Lesser, another Pierson student, had a goal and won 13 of 16 face-offs.
Against North Babylon, it was Harvey leading the way again with four goals and five assists as the Bonackers jumped out to a quick 2-0 start.
“Sean Toole has been good in the goal,” head coach Mike Vitulli said when asked about other Pierson players, of which there are nine on the squad. “Max Grout and Joe Gengarelly are both starting and playing well.”
The Bonackers suffered their first loss of the season, falling 10-5 to Harborfields on Tuesday. They will play at Sayville today, March 27, at 4:30 p.m. and at Hampton Bays on Wednesday, April 2 at 7 p.m. The team’s next home game will come on April 4 against Bayport-Blue Point at 4:30 p.m.
