The North Shore lacrosse team had another successful week, earning two league wins and bringing its overall record to 10-5.
The week started with a hard-fought game against Seaford High School. With the scored tied 2-2 after two quarters, North Shore's offense stepped up, putting in six goals in the second half. Chris Dellavecchia led North Shore with three goals and two assists. Taylor McGrath and Keith Lopez each had two and Tommy Kilderry added one goal to round out the Viking scoring. Robbie Grabher had a great day at the face off X winning 10 of 14.
Even more impressive than the offensive output in the second half was the shut-down defense the Vikings played. With help from Shaun Brala, Matt Meade and Will Vallasiadis, goalie Glen Gerbush was able to keep Seaford off the scoreboard in the final two quarters. Also assisting the North Shore defense were midfielders Tucker Morgan, Mike Lennon and Mike Treco.
