The Duxbury boys’ lacrosse team beat the defending Connecticut state champsionship Fairfield Prep Jesuits over the weekend 9-6, in a battle that solidified a winning streak typical of the former state championship team. 

 

The Dragons got on the board first at Connecticut College on Saturday with a goal by Harrison Piper, but did not enjoy the lead for long, as the Jesuits quickly secured a goal of their own, ending the first quarter tied at 1. 

A Brendan Burke goal assisted by Matt Sharpe put Duxbury up 2-1, but a Jesuit goal tied it up yet again. Not one to give in to pressure, Nick Sisoian slid the ball past the Jesuit goalie to end the half 3-2 Duxbury. 

The  Dragons started off the second half with their sights set on a win, hitting two goals from Wes Quinzani and Shane Sullivan and running away with the 6-3 lead on a Powers goal, with an assist from Dillon to end the third quarter. 

With three Dragons down in the fourth quarter, Fairfield pushed for the win, scoring three goals in quick succession, but the Dragons pushed back, maintaining the lead with a Powers goal with an assist from Sharpe. 

With 1:53 left in the game and Duxbury ahead 8-6, Powers slid a shot past Jesuit defenders to secure the final score of 9-6. 

The Dragons have had a successful season, beating Belmont Hill, Roxbury Latin, Silver Lake, Scituate and Pembroke.
