Tyler Ames had two goals and an assist in the Foxborough Warriors' 6-2 win over Sandwich at Gillette Stadium.
The setting may of been a little different but for the Foxborough boys' lacrosse team, a home game is a home game, even if the game is played in Gillette Stadium, Saturday. Playing down the road from their usual stomping grounds as part of the New England Lacrosse Classic, the Foxborough Warriors one again earned a victory at the home of the Patriots with a 6-2 win over the Sandwich Blue Knights. "Its been a great experience. Playing here last year was fun. We graduated a ton of seniors last year, so a lot more guys get playing time," Foxborough attacker Tyler Ames said of playing in the stadium.

Foxborough's Drew McGeary led the way with four goals and Jake Soccorso had three goals and three assists in the boys' lacrosse team's 12-4 win.
After a disappointing out of league loss to Xaverian, the Foxborough Warriors had only one goal against the Canton Bulldogs and that was to get back to their winning ways with a 12-4 win Wednesday afternoon. “Our team played good. We wanted to avenge the loss to Xaverian yesterday and I thought we came out playing,” Foxborough senior captain Jake Soccorso said. The Warriors’ midfield were the impact players in their win over the Bulldogs. The midfield of Soccorso (3 goals, 3 assists), Drew McGeary (4 goals), and Anthony Fertita (2 goals and an assist) were responsible for nine of the team’s 12 goals and four assists as they led the Foxborough offensive attack. “Those are guys that I need to play at that level.

The spring sports season is right around the corner and the Foxborough Warriors are ready to challenge the Hockomock League.
The spring teams of Foxborough High School are gearing up for another season. Here is what you can expect from the Warriors. Boys Lacrosse Reloading Not Rebuilding After making it to the Eastern Massachusetts semifinals last year, the boys' lacrosse team finds themselves in a nontraditional rebuilding year. Forced to sport practically a new line up because of graduation, there are going to be plenty of new starters on opening day despite the players being no stranger to the program. “We lost nine starters last year. We definitely plugged in holes this year that being said I think we can be as good and if not better than last year,” boys' lacrosse coach Matt Noone said. Coming back from last year are midfielders Tyler Ames and senior …

Foxborough defeats the Raiders in an impressive 8-1 win.
Foxborough lacrosse looks like a team on a mission. Playing Reading Memorial High School in the quarterfinals of the MIAA Division 2 Eastern tournament, the Warriors drained the Raiders on a hot afternoon en route to an impressive 8-1 win. Playing against a Reading team that uses a similar strategy as Foxborough, the first half was mostly a slow paced affair. With both teams taking their time to maximize their possessions, shots were carefully taken with two strong goalies in net. While slower, it was a pace that no one on the Warriors minded playing. “I love it. It brings out your best in you,” said Warriors senior captain Connor Whalen. Despite the tight game, Whalen opened up scoring at 2:23 in the first quarter to give the Warriors an …

Foxborough wins 14-0 over the Northeast Metro Tech Knights to advance out of the preliminary round of the MIAA East Division 2 Boys Lacrosse Tournament.
Last week a confident Foxborough Warriors lacrosse team walked into the Hockomock Cup expecting to win. Instead, they walked out shocked by their defeat to Franklin. While the loss hurt, it may have been the wake up call the Warriors needed. “That was the slap in the face, the bucket of cold water that woke us up,” said Warriors coach Matt Noone. In their first game since the Hockomock Cup, the Warriors regained their composure in a dominating 14-0 win over the Northeast Metro Tech Knights to advance out of the preliminary round of the MIAA East Division 2 Boys Lacrosse Tournament. The Warriors went to work right from the start and never gave the Knights a chance. Connor Whalen got the Warriors on the board only 51 seconds into the game …

Franklin walks away with an 8-5 win over Foxborough and the Hockomock Cup.
Before this year, having the best regular season record would have been good enough to be Hockomock League champions. With the divisional split and the creation of the Hockomock Cup, it would take one more game to crown the league champion. In the inaugural lacrosse cup matchup, Davenport Division Champion Foxborough would face Kelly-Rex Division Champion Franklin in a rematch of their New England Lacrosse Classic Matchup. Unlike the previous game that saw the Foxborough Warriors get a 13-7 win over the Franklin Panthers, it would be the Panthers who would walk away with an 8-5 win and the Hockomock Cup. For the first half of the first quarter both teams looked even. Playing tight defense, both the Warriors and Panthers struggled to get …

The Foxborough girls lacrosse season came to a disappointing end Monday afternoon. Playing King Philip in their Hockomock Classic crossover game, the Warriors could not capitalize on an early 2-0 lead and lost to King Philip 15-8. Coming out strong against King Philip, Foxborough looked to jump on KP early. Danielle Warner got an early goal for Foxborough that was followed up by another goal from Abby Tepper. The early lead would not last for Foxborough. Making great use their speed, Mallory Knowlton and Olivia Fair quickly tied the game up. King Philip continued to pound on Foxboro with 2 big goals from Kathryn Riley to give KP a 4-2 lead. Scoring 4 goals in a span of less than 3 minutes, it was apparent that King Philip had gotten out of…
