Top-seeded Bedford scored the game’s first seven goals and breezed to a 16-2 victory over sixth-seeded Goffstown at Exeter High’s Eustis Field.
“We needed to shut off some of their big scorers and then possess the ball, but it didn’t quite play out the way we wanted it to,” Goffstown coach Joshua Lewis said. “Our second plan was to attack the cage, but their goalie (Mathew Howe) played fantastic.”
Guerard said he would like to see his program move to Division I.
Goffstown finished 11-6. It was Goffstown program’s first appearance in a championship game.
“Bedford is a strong team, they’re a tough team,” Lewis said. “Would I have liked it to be closer? Absolutely, but Bedford doesn’t have two, three or four phenomenal players, they have a team of above-average players.”
“I’m not ashamed of these boys or sad for them because they did me proud,” Lewis said. “They fought and did Goffstown proud. They did the program proud. People are going to start to talk about Goffstown lacrosse.”
