involved with the program.”
O’Callaghan (3G, 1A), with an assist from Blake Borges
(2G, 1A), gave Yorktown, which has won 27 of the 30 cup
meetings, its 4-0 advantage with 1:29 to go in the opening
“We’d like to get o to a big lead,” O’Callaghan said. “Our
defense did a good job at keeping them at 0 for awhile so we
had to take advantage of that and get as many goals as we
could before they scored. We got on a nice little run to start
the game. So,when we scored that fourth goal, it gave us some
nice, little breathing room.”
Lakeland/Panas,which last won the cup in 2010,responded
six seconds later when Mason Nocito, courtesy of an assist by
TJ Bryan (5 face-o s won), cut the Huskers’ lead to 4-1.
“Our face-o man TJ, who had been outstanding all night,
won the face-o , brought it down, passed it to me, the guy
slipped, no one came to me so I just shot it and I shot it o
him, he was a righty,” Nocito said. “I knew once I shot it, I
had to put it in.”
Lakeland/Panas’ Sean Laukaitis scored 26 seconds into the
second half, slicing Yorktown’s lead in half, 4-2.
“It was right at the beginning of the second half,” Nocito
said. “We had momentum, coach told us we had to come out
and match their intensity and we put that goal right in and it
got us lifted a little bit.”
Reese Andrews (2G, 1A) answered back with 9:47 to go
in the third quarter, putting Yorktown up 5-2 and it didn’t
“Lacrosse is a game of runs so we wanted to prevent them
from getting on a big run,” O’Callaghan said. “ ey had two
goals in a couple of minutes so Reese’s goal really kind of
extinguished that and let us get back in our groove.”
Yorktown’s Alex DeBenedictis (3G), Keegan Doller (1G,
1A), Shane Dahlke (1A), Brendan Williams (11 face-o s
won), Dan O’Meara (6 saves), Adam Norris (1 save) and
Lakeland/Panas’ Matt Makar (2G), Alex Davoli (1A) and JP
Walsh (7 saves) produced for their respective teams.
“ e boys really understand,” Yorktown coach Sean
Carney said about the importance of winning the Murphy
Cup. “We try to teach them about what Mr. Murph really
meant to the program and not just the person, but it’s also
about the community, the town, being sel ess, lled with the
community of respect and sel essness, and that’s really what
this cup means to us. It’s their job is to bring it back and make
sure they keep it here.”
Lakeland/Panas coach Jim Lindsay said the game is
important for the tradition of the two programs.
“I don’t know how many of these kids really know much
about Charlie, especially our kids, it’s been so long, but it’s a
rivalry,” Lindsay said. “Part of the Lakeland School District is
in the town of Yorktown. So, these kids see each other in the
summer time, they play football against each other, basketball,
