Valley Tech Boys LAX Thrills at Seasons End

Blackstone Valley Tech's boys' lacrosse team won 13 games this season, but perhaps none more thrilling than its last victory, an 8-7 overtime win over Littleton in the opening round of the district tournament.
"We brought out "A" game against Littleton," said head coach Anthony Comforti, who earned the Gatorade shower after sophomore Bailey Lacy scored the game-winning goal with 45 seconds left in the extra session. "This really set the standard for us in lacrosse, it's our 15th season but the first time we've been able to get a win in the first round."
After a five-win campaign in 2011, not many predicted the Beavers would be able to have such a successful season, but Comforti saw the writing on the wall with his current senior class.
"I started coaching here four years ago, and these freshmen were with me on the JV and came up with me," he said. "The 11 freshmen turned into my 11 seniors this year so I knew this would be the season to bring us somewhere significant."
In addition to winning a district game, the Beavers also qualified for the state vocational tournament, another first for the Valley Tech program. Despite a 10-6 loss to Shawsheen, Comforti says the appearance was a huge boost for his team.
"It gave us some morale and helped us make sure our heads were on straight going into the tournament," he said.
Valley Tech's season came to an end in the district quarterfinals with a 19-2 loss against undefeated Tyngsboro, but it did little to damper the success and new heights for the program.
Senior captain Trevor Hendrix led the team in scoring this season, and provided a formidable attack with fellow senior Joe Bouthillette. Both players are going on to play lacrosse at the college level, according to Comforti. Senior midfielders Zach Sullivan and Adam Karagosian contributed both scoring and face-off wins to the Beavers' cause. Sullivan intends to join the Navy after high school and Karagosian is off to UMass-Amherst.
With all of the senior-driven offense, it was a pair of sophomores in Nick Wojnar and goaltender Griffin Boyle who anchored the defense for BVT. The pair will highlight the returning crop for Comforti's team, and will have a lot to live up to after a memorable run in 2011.
