The Mamaroneck Varsity Boys Lacrosse Team played Scarsdale in the Section 1 Boys Lacrosse final on May 31st at Yorktown. The game, which saw a consistent Scarsdale lead, ended 7-10 to the Raiders. Much like the 2021-22 season, the Tigers were successful in the regular season against Scarsdale but lost in the Section Finals.

Down 0-4 at the end of the first quarter, Mamaroneck reset and kept on climbing up little by little; it was one step forward and two steps back for most of the game. Jack Ramsay scores the first goal of the game in the second quarter. Rhett Chambers and Andrew Glinski scored the next two, bringing the score to 3-7 at half.

The third quarter was the strongest for the Tigers, starting with an early second half goal from Junior Grant Mathieson to bring the game to 4-7. Scarsdale scores again, but the Tiger momentum only grew. Andrew Glinski scores, Rhett Chambers scores, and Jack Ramsay scores without a Scarsdale goal interrupting, making the score 7-8, the closest it would be throughout the game.

Winning another faceoff, Scarsdale stalled at least a minute or two until they dove back into action to score again, twice. The game ended in a devastating 7-10, but the comeback during the third quarter in concert with spirit shown on the field and in the stands displayed the Tiger’s determination. 

The crowd was supportive throughout the entire game, making the trek to Yorktown High School en masse despite a 45 minute drive through rush hour traffic. The Tiger spirit was led by the many parents and younger Lacrosse players that showed up for their team. The passion from the crowd showed as the referees made controversial calls regarding fouls and turnovers during the last quarter. Although a tough loss for Mamaroneck, the fight they put up throughout the game showed their Tiger spirit. Good luck seniors wherever you go, and see everyone else next year on the field.
