The Boys 1/2 Blue Team lost another hard fought battle to NRI, 4-2. Evan Chamberlain and Max DeMatteo led the way with one goal apiece. 

 

CYLAX 3/4     3

WPAL 3/4       6

 

On Saturday CYLAX 3/4s had the early game at 8am on the Tucker Turf.  It was the battle of the undefeated.  Warwick 3/4 4-0, CYLAX 3/4 6-0. 

Warwick came out ready to play and caught the CYLAX 3/4 boys off guard and raced out to a 5-0 half time lead.  Warwick's team was strong and it took some time for the CYLAX boys to adjust to the game.  The CYLAX boys came out of half time ready to play and were able to get 2 goals in the 3rd and another in the 4th but it was not enough as the Warwick team got the closer in the 4th and won 6-3.  The boys never quit or gave up playing hard to the final whistle.  Leading the team on Saturday and receiving the game all was Bryce Clary 2 goal and 1 assist the other goal was scored by Ryan Polski.  We will get back to practice this week to get ready for the Season Finally in Middletown vs Island Lacrosse ¾

 

Boys 5/6 DI CYLAX 18 Prov 2

The 5/6 DI boys traveled to Providence for an early 8:30am game. CYLAX came out hot with Tommy Herring(2G,2A) taking the opening faceoff and quickly finding Casey Campanelli( 5G,4A) on the crease for a quick score. The offensive onslaught continued as the attack unit of Mason Mieczynski(5G,3A) Campanelli and Josh Landry(4A) methodically used our motion offense to find passing lanes and quick feeds for scores. The midfield of Wes Sinclair(3G,2A) Herring and Jameson L’Hereux(2A) were dominant in transition, consistently winning ground ball battles and clearing the ball with authority. The offense worked in a new play out of a formation they only saw on the white board and hadn’t even practiced yet and it lead to two goals. The defense of Chase Fiore(1G) Sebastian Ianuccilli(1G) Brady Nolet (5gb’s) Myles Muzrall (3gb’s) and Myer Fink(1G) completely shut down the Prov offense. Jackson Silva playing his role of LSM worked double duty causing multiple turnovers as well as scooping three ground balls. Per his usual self, Matthew McAuliffe was sensational in net making 8 saves and backing up five shots to regain CYLAX possession. The boys are really starting grasp our offensive and defensive concepts and it’s been great watching them grow the lax IQ’s.

 

Boys 5/6 DII

It was a hot one on Saturday where our boys of CYLAX played Westerly at Tucker field in Cumberland where unfortunately we took a loss of a score of 7 to 1. Lone goal by Zachary Force of Cumberland. With limited players our boys played the whole game and tried their best gutting it out playing good defense and getting shots on goal but only one went in. Goalie Lucas Haran had a great game saving about 10 shots. We have an off week this week coming up but will be playing out remaining games at home starting on 6/4 at 11.30 where we will hopefully be at full strength and get back to winning games. The boys play hard and we are proud of them and we will be ready June 4th.

Cumberland Boys 7/8 DII team traveled to Portsmouth for an early Saturday morning game. CYLAX started the game slow with 1 goal scored in the first quarter by (51) Mason Titus, PYL quickly tied it up. The 2nd quarter started looking up with 2 more goals, coming from (51) Mason Titus and (42) Marshall Vernon. The fog started to clear and the CYLAX boys hit their stride with 4 goals in the 3rd quarter from, (3) Dylan Fitzgerald assist from (51) Mason Titus, (20) Colin Peterson assist from (3) Dylan Fitzgerald, and 2 goals from (44) Nicholas Letendre assist (51) Mason Titus.

(7) Wesley Haran, (31) Joshua Vennemeyer, (21) Chace Snyder, (17) Jack Riordan, and (8) Chad Germadnik, held their own in an aggressive game, won ground balls with great stick work and kept the ball down field.

This was a full total team victory, the roster was tight, and the boys took the game to a strong Portsmouth team. The boys continue to play hard and come together as a team.

 

CYLAX Girls 1/2 Blue (9) vs East Greenwich (2)

On Saturday 5/21/22 EGLax came to Diamond Hill to face off against our Blue team in a much anticipated showdown. 

With both teams shorthanded we had to dig deep and play hard with only 1 sub on the hottest day this year. 

After winning the opening draw we made 2 quick passes up field where Scarlett Fiore made a quick spin dodge to get the open shot and score, setting the pace for the rest of the game. 

Everything fell into perfect place as Lexi Pfeiffer, Eloise Wensus, and Eliana Branco did what they've become known for and scooped up every ground ball on the defensive side, shutting down EG's offensive attempts.  

Lexi had 2 interceptions and double digit ground balls to keep the ball in cumberland hands.

For the first time this year, every CYLAX player had a catch in the air to get their blue bead for the week, as they tried to feed the ball to the younger players to get some shots on goal. 

Kia Myers got more and more confidence from her team cheering her on and hit the side pipes 2 times with hard shots.  

Goals were scored by Scarlett (3), Annabelle (2), Lexi (2), Eloise (1) and Eliana (1)

We now have 2 weeks to practice before our next and final game of the season, against NK on June 4th at 9am at Diamond Hill

 

CYLAX 3/4 GIRLS

The CYLAX 3/4 GIRLS defeated Warwick, 9-6, at Tucker on a very hot Saturday after a number of the CYLAX girls ran the Community Color Run 5k. Cali Croteau was a force on attack with two goals, while fellow attackers Star Perron and McKenna Connors added another apiece At midfield, Sophia Fraoli helped control/place the two draws, while Avery Fernandes helped with the indirects. Mackenize Silva, Jillian Henderson, and Quinn White were instrumental at moving the ball down the field, and they collectively scored the other six goals, with Silva earning the hat trick and Henderson just missing another when she bounced what would have been her third goal off the goalie's helmet. Silva also took the recent re-defend emphasis to heart, so we'll be looking for more of that from everyone as we enter the homestretch. Quinn Berard was dominant on defense, with Julia Cotter's help, especially in the second half. Mallory Black again served as goalie and made a number of key saves that kept the girls in the game. A big thanks to Coach Kevin L'Heureux who stepped up from the 1/2 Boys' game to coach the attacks in the high-stakes world of 3/4 Girls Lax. The team will get a break this Memorial Day weekend, and then they'll play their final regular game against Cranston the week after. 

 

2022 Game 7 – Saturday, May 21, 2022

CYLAX 5/6 Girls 11      Cranston 2

On a hot and steamy Saturday morning at Cranston Stadium, the CYLAX 5/6 Girls improved to 6-1 on the season and prevented the Phoenix from rising with a convincing 11-2 win. The Blue and White raced out to a quick 4-0 lead with goals from Chloe Biggs, Maeve Cunningham, and Calleigh Campanelli. CYLAX would get one more from Leah Pelletier before the break to take a 5-1 halftime lead.

 

It was more of the same in the second half. After Cranston scored the opening goal of the frame, the Blue & White closed the game on a 6-0 run, getting goals from Maggie Caggiano, Biggs, Audrey Sousa, Cunningham and Campanelli as they rolled to an 11-2 win.

 

Paige Mahon and Gabby Zabinski split time in goal making multiple saves, while allowing just one goal each. With multiple players out for a variety of reasons, the girls all played multiple positions throughout the day. Ella Fraioli,  Tatum Connors, Kyleigh Groleau and Shelby Gabel played some lockdown defense before moving into different positions. On attack, Erin Taylor, Maddison Roy, Caroline Bizier and Caggiano joined Pelletier in helping create multiple scoring chances. And in the midfield, Hadley Henderson joined Biggs, Campanelli and Cunningham, and was tremendously effective in the transition game.

 

Overall, it was another impressive total team effort. The girls have really adapted well to our passing game based on making smart decisions and simple plays. With no games on tap for this coming Memorial Day weekend, the girls will be back in action on Saturday June 4th for the road leg of their two-game regular season series with Warwick.

 

Girls 7/8

 

On Saturday CYLAX Girls 7/8 took on South County at Tucker Field. Looking to build on the momentum from last week’s win, CYLAX wasted no time with early scoring off draw wins from the midfielders. After several quick midfield goals South County’s defense began double and triple teaming CYLAX midfielders in an attempt to slow them down. CYLAX began controlling the pace of the offense with good positioning and passing which brought the attackers to bear on South County. CYLAX continued to pressure their opponent throughout the entire first half going into halftime with a 9-1 lead.

In the second half CYLAX continued to control the game on both sides of the field. The CYLAX defenders played well through the entire game, denying South County opportunities for shots on goal. They only allowed ten shots the entire game.

For the CYLAX goalies, it was a shared game with excellent results. Peyton Giroux who stood in goal for the first half stopped four shots while Sabrina Harvey took control in the second half stopping an additional three.

CYLAX finished the game 11-3.

After the end of the game, the referee called the opposing team coaches together and remarked about how clean the game was, not only in the lack of penalties by both teams, but the professionalism and good attitudes displayed by both teams. This is a testament to the character displayed by the girls all season long and as a coach/parent, makes me proud of this team.

Leanna Parrillo - midfield 3 goals
