It was not the first instance that Grant Whiteway had left an opponent a bit stunned.
The junior attack from Billerica entered Tuesday’s matchup against visiting Providence with five goals in a 4-1 start to the season for the University of Massachusetts Amherst men’s lacrosse team.
More than an hour later, he walked off Garber Field with 12 after powering the Minutemen to a 16-11 victory with a seven-goal performance.
Teammate James Fahey, a former rival at St. John’s Prep, recalls a Billerica-Prep matchup in May 2010 when Whiteway ran up 10 yards from the goal line extended before launching a shot 180 degrees into the corner of the net.
“It left us scratching our heads,” recalled Fahey. “Like, ‘How did he just do that?’ ”
The senior defender from Boxford mused that Providence may have been wondering the same thing.
