Boys’ Lacrosse Beats Auburn in Tourney Opener


Bedford High School boys’ lacrosse Coach Alan Chang was ebullient after Tuesday’s 13-8 triumph over Auburn in the preliminary round of the MIAA Division 3 state tournament at Sabourin Field.

“This was a great win and a great milestone for Bedford Lacrosse,” Chang asserted. “It was always our goal this season to make the playoffs and win our first-round game.”

The opposition was Auburn High School, whose coach, Mike Jarvis, was a force as a football Buccaneer in the late 1980s.

Bedford never trailed in this game, and when Auburn scored less than a minute into the second half, the margin was 6-5. Then Bedford tallied three consecutive times  – two by Rich Fedele, sandwiching a score from freshman Jackson Malio.

After that, Auburn never got closer than three.

Fedele and fellow junior Eric Miles each scored four goals, Malio had three and fellow freshman Lucas Morvillo added two. Hugh Gilroy, who graduated with the class of 2022 last week, made 11 saves in the win.

“I’m very proud of this team and what we’ve been able to accomplish this year, I believe the program is on the right track and that the future is bright,” the coach declared. Bedford will have a more formidable foe when the Bucs travel to second-ranked Norwell Thursday for a 4 p.m, start.

The girls’ lacrosse team will play its first tournament game Thursday at 4:30 p.m. on Sabourin Field.

Meanwhile, the softball team traveled to Attleboro Tuesday and fell 8-0 to end the Buccaneer season.  Earlier this week, the girls’ tennis team was eliminated from tournament play by Ursuline Academy.
