Stadium lights flickered on as players leave the sweaty huddle to gather on the field and the second half of the game starts. 

The score was 9-2 at the half, and Huntley boys lacrosse only continued to pack on points as the game progressed. 

As the scoreboard glared zero seconds, Huntley secured a massive 19-to-4 win over the McHenry Warriors on Thursday, April 11.

Boys lacrosse conference record stands at 2-0 for the season’s beginning, adding to their 28-0 undefeated seasons for the past four years. 

Head coach Dominic Saccomanno has led the team during these years and has used his 20 years of coaching knowledge to build a strong foundation and support these players when working towards success.

“We moved the ball really fast on offense,” Saccomanno said. “Defensively, we didn’t have a whole lot. [McHenry] kind of milked the clock a bit on their possessions; they knew that was the key for them to kind of have a closer game.”

Players continued to rotate throughout the game’s course, with goals being scored by senior Nico Andrews and junior Bobby Pupich among others. Pupich, a high-ranked athlete with a scoring average of three goals per game, was satisfied with the offense’s movement due to the speed they played at.

“I feel like offensively we had more possessions, moved the ball more, and were more settled on offense,” Pupich said. “Defensively, we got a couple of good shots, and did good at goalie.”

Players and coaches look forward to the season, hoping to win the Fox Valley Conference this season and their third sectional win in a row. Strengthening the team is important, and they look to do so as the season starts to ramp up through practicing and building pressure on teams.

“We did good just having pressure on the ball,” junior Kelly Gassner said. “It was something we struggled with the past couple of games, and that was better this game.”
