LEBANON — The Hanover High boys lacrosse team built a 3-1 lead after one quarter and an 8-1 advantage by halftime, using that as a foundation for a 15-6 win over Lebanon on Thursday afternoon at Lebanon High School.

Jack Badams netted a season-high six goals and two assists for the Marauders (3-0), who earned their second win over the next-door neighbors in three days. Brett Simmons (three goals, two assists) and Sawyer Brown (two goals, one assist) also had big days on offense.

Hanover coach Ryan Gardner credited Brendan Logan’s play in midfield, vacuuming up 15 ground balls to help the Marauders maintain control. Logan, Seamus Murphy, Angus Frew and DH Hendrick accounted for Hanover’s other scores, and Danny Pitiger made seven saves.

With their next three games (one vs. John Stark, two vs. Manchester Central) cancelled, the Marauders are off until a May 4 home game with Derryfield. Lebanon (0-2) returns to action on Monday, hosting Keene.

HANOVER — A burst of Hanover scoring before halftime set the Marauders (3-0) up for their second win over the Raiders (0-2) this week.

Molly Smith led Lebanon with four goals and one assist. Catherine Cole provided two goals, and Kayla Taber, Maddie Jewell and Ella Longacre accounted for the others. Goalie Lena Nowell made 12 saves.

“We gave up a handful of goals at the end of the first half and lost some of our fight,” Lebanon coach Sara Ecker noted. “It is hard to come back against a team like Hanover. They are a solid team with some talented players.”

Both teams are off until next week. The Raiders host Keene on Monday; Hanover heads to John Stark on Tuesday.

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. — The Hilltoppers blanked the Hurricanes (0-1) in a match moved indoors to the academy’s field house by weather conditions.

Hartford coach Kate Godek credited her squad for competing well. The second doubles tandem of Owen Parker and Sebastian Fraser had the most success, winning three games in a straight-sets defeat.

The Canes head to the Maxfield Sports Center courts to host North Country on Saturday.
