St. John’s Prep lacrosse catches fire early in Div. 1 Round of 32 victory

DANVERS — The St. John's Prep lacrosse team took a nine-goal lead and never looked back Thursday evening, as the No. 1 Eagles rolled to a 15-0 win over No. 32 Belmont in a Division 1 Round of 32 game at Fred Glatz Memorial Field.

"It's always great when you can start fast like that and then adjust as the game goes on," said Prep coach John Pynchon. "We moved the ball well and took some good shots early, and that really set the tone for us out there."

Getting out to that big lead early also helped the Prep in other ways, like being able to get a number of freshmen and sophomore players some serious varsity minutes in a state tournament setting.
