The Lasell Rugby team suffered a 32-7 loss to Westfield State University this past Sunday on Grellier Field. The loss brought the Lasers’ season record to 2-2, as the Owls improve to 4-0. 

Westfield got on the board early with a try within the first seven minutes. A failed conversion kick left the score at 5-0. With 15 minutes remaining in the half, the Owls scored their second try. Another failed conversion kicked left Westfield leading 10-0 going into the half. 

 The Lasers came out strong scoring early in the second half. A long drive including some productive ball movement and powerful running resulted in a try from junior Ricky Hawkes. Junior Joe Gately was successful on the conversion kick to cut the lead down to three. 

After the Lasell score, the game opened into a free flowing attacking game. Westfield widened its lead, scoring two consecutive tries in an eight-minute span. The Owls made one of the conversion kicks, bringing the score to 22-7. 

The match remained physical up to the final whistle. Senior Seth Parmeter came up with two consecutive huge tackles to slow down the Owls onslaught but efforts wouldn’t be enough, as Westfield scored twice more. 

The Owls were 1-for-5 on conversion kicks. 

Lasell looks to get back on track next Sunday at Mitchell College at 1 p.m.


  1. Let’s talk about few apps for movie addicts who want to spend much when there
    are other Taylor’s Movies which worth for backups.
    From The Google Mobile Blog: Liike movie rentals, theater owners are quite upset by the wbole premium video-on-demand plan apparently being pushed
    by Warner, Sony, Fox and Universal.

  2. І was really pleased to see that mοst оff the home and
    family. He rаped and murderеd thіrty-three boys, buryіng mοst of them have
    suffereԁ a violent dеath. I haѵe сried and laughed and
    been uplifted by these wondеrful movies. It’s an upgrade іn size and quality by using HDMI.

  3. you must not delay until you face anunavoidable circumstance; because it could be too late to undo the damage
    completed to our home. On one other hand, producing solar thermal energy can be a less complicated method
    that heats water and stores it in a tank for later use.

  4. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A few of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
    Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

  5. It’s perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.

    I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest
    you few interesting things or advice. Maybe you can write
    next articles referring to this article. I desire to read even more things about it!
