Men’s Lacrosse Blows Past Miramonte at Matt Lynn Memorial Game

By Tommy Fellner

The Acalanes Men’s Lacrosse team (7-1) beat the Miramonte Matadors 15-1 this tuesday night in the Matt Lynn memorial game.

Matt Lynn was a friend of Acalanes head coach Brent Ringwood and played on the Acalanes club lacrosse team and played club lacrosse at UCSB, but was diagnosed with brain cancer. Despite this, he continued to coach the Acalanes team while he was receiving chemotherapy. Lynn embodied the spirit and character of the Acalanes Men’s Lacrosse and this game was a tribute to him.

Inspired by Lynn’s memory and eager to assert their dominance of their crosstown rival, the Dons came out intense and firing. Going up quick early, the Dons showed that they were physically and athletically superior to the Matadors.

At the half, the Dons were up 8-0. The Dons’ offense picked apart the Matadors while their defense stifled any attack the Matadors tried to assemble.

Senior captain Adrian Jeffries led the scoring column for the Dons with four goals and senior captain and defenseman Vinny Gladden scored two goals, one with his right hand and the other with his left. Junior Nathan Brickman scored 3 goals and junior Nathan Lee scored a goal for the Dons.

The next opponent for the Dons is Alhambra high school, a team Acalanes regularly beats.
