Tanners Boys’ Lacrosse in search of first win

Two non-league home losses left the Peabody boys’ lacrosse team still searching for their first victory of 2017. Despite a 13-1 defeat at the hands of a very strong Chelmsford squad last Saturday and 15-4 loss to North Reading on Tuesday, Tanners head coach Tony O’Donnell sees progress.

“I think we’re getting better with every game,” said O’Donnell after last Saturday’s outing. “Chelmsford is a tough opponent; they’re undefeated and they’re a quality team. I thought we hung with them for most of the game. But what continues to plague us are secondary possessions, unforced turnovers and clearing the ball [out of the defensive zone]. Of the 25 minutes in the first half, we played 20 of those on defense. You’re not going to win when that happens.”

Taking nine penalties in Saturday’s game also didn’t help the Tanners, who dropped to 0-5 after Tuesday’s defeat. Colby Therrian scored Peabody’s only goal against Chelmsford.

In Tuesday’s game, Stephen Ell continued his strong play on offense by tallying three times. Ell poured home six goals in Peabody’s close Northeastern Conference 9-8 loss at Danvers last week. Freshman James Nicholson notched his first career varsity goal, and netminder Jake DeStafano finished with 22 saves.
