Men’s lacrosse saw its season end in a last minute goal from Becker College in the Great Northeast Athletic Conference semi-finals, falling 12-11. David Deschenes scored the winning goal for the Hawks with only 13 seconds left in the fourth quarter. The Lasers finished the season at 11-6 overall.
“One of the hardest things is saying goodbye to something you love…a sport we all played since we were little and a family of brothers called a team,” said senior Bobby Spellman.
Sophomore Andrew Suh led the Lasers with four goals and two assists in the semifinal contest. Freshman Josh Gallant added two goals and an assist. Junior David Whalen made 19 saves while earning the loss in net. Lasell’s 2013 season ended at the hands of the same team, Becker College, with a loss in the GNAC quarterfinals.
The team will be losing four seniors, including attackers Chuck Graham and Dylan Gray, and defenders Donald Berube and Spellman. “The best thing was being a part of this team, this family…going to battle and knowing 35 guys are standing behind you,” said Graham. Graham has been a part of the program all four years and represented the team as the senior captain.
“That feeling of putting on a uniform, I’m going to miss it,” Spellman added.
