HIGH SCHOOL BOYS’ LACROSSE

EMass boys’ lacrosse: Reading’s Michael Tobin headlines Players of the Week

Top performances from EMass lacrosse players in the past week:

Alex Kreher, St. John’s Prep — Backstopping the Eagles to a win in the Creators Crosse, the senior made 18 saves in a 10-9 first-round win against Franklin before stopping six of the seven shots he faced in a 15-3 victory against Walpole.

Tim Ladner, Sandwich — The Blue Knights captured the Bridgewater-Raynam tournament with wins over Hull (12-4) and the host Trojans (11-6) thanks to the constant possession provided by Ladner from the faceoff-X. He won 30 of his 33 draws over two games and netted five goals.

John Schofield, Medfield — Once again, the Warriors (6-0) are off to a stifling start defensively and Schofield has been stellar. The defenseman created nine turnovers over two games against Xaverian (9-6) and Pinkerton Academy (17-5) last week, giving up just one goal while in coverage on each of the opposition’s top scorers.

He also had two goals and an assist in a 9-7 victory over Billerica.

Brendan Tully, Foxborough — In helping the Warriors win back-to-back Chowda Cup titles, the Providence College-bound attackman had 10 points over three games, including two goals and two assists in an 8-6 win over Norwell in the final.
