Medfield senior captain Max Zuccarini scores with 2:03 to play in the second overtime as the Warriors escape with an 8-7 triumph over Tri-Valley League rival Dover-Sherborn.
Recap and highlights to come in a bit.
Quality opportunities for both sides, but nothing in the twine. We're off to a second four-minute, sudden-death overtime.
Tied, 7-7 (end of regulation)
Dover-Sherborn twice rallies to tie this game and we're headed to overtime knotted at 7. Trevor Pearson scored the final goal of regulation for the Raiders to force the extra session.
Medfield, 6-4 (end of 3rd)
Very quiet third quarter with D-S scoring the lone goal early to cut its deficit to 2. Chris Whelan produced the frame's lone tally.
Medfield, 6-3 (half)
Jack McDermott produced the middle goals on a four-goal outburst by Medfield late in the first half and the Warriors have come back from an early second-quarter deficit to boast a 6-3 advantage over rival Dover-Sherborn at the intermission.
Dover-Sherborn surged from its own two-goal, first-quarter deficit and scored three consecutive times spanning into the second quarter to take a brief lead.
McDermott scored his goals less than a minute apart to put the Warriors out front, and Harry Bodozian added a tally with 54 ticks to play in the quarter for the three-goal lead.
Rock solid effort for goaltender Sam Aronson so far. He gave up a few early goals when his defense failed to slide when attackers made rushes from behind the net, but he's made some tremendous stops to keep Dover quiet for long stretches.
Medfield, 2-1 (end of 1st)
Sloppy start but the offenses got comfy late and Medfield leads 2-1 after a quarter. Max Zuccarini and Harry Bodozian scored the goals.
Welcome to Medfield, where the Forsberg Cruiser sets the temperature at a very April-friendly 61 degrees for today's Tri-Valley League boys' lacrosse showdown between Medfield and Dover-Sherborn.
We've got some April showers turning on and off on this overcast day, and they look like they'll persist throughout today's game, but shouldn't play too much of a role (particularly with a turf surface).
We'll be back with more updates throughout the afternoon.
