George Hanford's Yardling lacrosse squad didn't disappoint a one-man cheering squad that braved yesterday afternoon's downpour to attend the team's official debut played against Lawrence Academy of Groton, Mass. The Freshmen registered a neat 5 to 0 triumph.
Scoring came early in the one-sided fray, as John Cowles hit in the first minute of play for '51. He tallied once again in the same period to take scoring honors for the Crimson.
Lawrence Defense Tightens
The Lawrence defense tightened up in the second frame, keeping the Freshmen on the outside, but the Yardlings poured on the heat in the last two stanzas to increase their lead.
Acting-captains Bernie MacGuire and Dick Post scored one apiece on the soggy Business School Field. Eric Bockjord also tallied.
The Freshman will meet Deerfield Academy Saturday, and will try to extend their skein to two.
