On May 16th, make sure you head over to Norwalk High Testa field at 6:30 to see the Senator men take on rival Norwalk in their last, and most important game of the season.
With both teams fighting to make states, the stakes have been raised. After an easy win by the McMahon girls lax team against Norwalk, the boys are real pumped. “Being my last game against Norwalk and the state qualifying game, I’m gonna put my whole heart into this game and leave everything on the field.” Says senior captain, Andrew Trujillo.
While the senators haven’t had a picture perfect season, they are still prepared to take on cross town rivals. “We’re watching lots of film this week and making adjustments so we know what to do when the day comes.” Says John Gatt (‘19). You can catch Gatt in the net blocking shots during Thursday's game. He adds, “Gary Claps (‘21) will be an important player for this game with the faceoffs. Also Ian Campbell (‘19) and Charlie Coale (‘20) are going to make some big moves.”
“Our strengths as a team are defense and ball movement on offense.” Trujillo adds. With a brick wall defense consisting of big men Andrew Trujillo, Peter Young (‘19), Danny Macintyre (‘21) and Gatt in goal, the Bears will have a hard time scoring.
With Bret Rodgers (‘19), William Acuna (‘19), and Ian Campbell (‘19) on offense, the Senators have good chances at a high scoring game.
While McMahon seems to have all-around strong team, the Norwalk High Bears will definitely come in hot on their home field. Make sure you’re there for the game of the season, Thursday at 6:30.
