Hingham rolls past St. John’s
Senior attackmen Noah Ellis and David Freitas each notched hat tricks as No. 4 Hingham jumped out to an 11-0 halftime lead in earning a 12-4 statement victory over 12th-ranked St. John’s Prep in Danvers Saturday afternoon.
“We played probably the best first half of lacrosse we’ve played almost ever because you gauge it against the quality of program that we’re playing,’’ said Hingham coach John Todd.
The Eagles controlled play early but it wasn’t long before the Harbormen took command. Kevin Blair carried the ball into the zone before passing it across the field to Kevin Morris, who brought it through the middle and rifled home the game’s first goal at 2:46.
Off the ensuing faceoff, the ball rolled to midfielder John Tocchio, who carried it through the zone and scored eight seconds after Morris.
The Harbormen tacked on four more goals in the first quarter, in addition to five in the second to head to the break with the 11-0 lead.
St. John’s scored less than a minute into the second half to get on the board and tallied two more in a span of a minute midway through the frame.
“That’s what you expect going in against a program like that,’’ said Todd. “They’re going to bring it, no matter what.’’
