The Los Alamitos boys lacrosse team ended its regular season on a positive note, beating Beckman 15-8 on Tuesday at Beckman High School.
“Proud of our guys for an awesome regular season, with two big top ten wins vs Santa Margarita and Santiago, and a lot of growth throughout the year. Was good to wrap-up the regular season with a win vs another top 20 team [in Beckman] and build on that momentum going into playoffs,” Griffins coach Tim Fox said in an email.
Ed Shean led the Griffins with six goals and four assists while James Hightower added three goals and one assist. Drew Anderson (2g, 1a), Thomas Dentzer (2g, 1a), Nico Kozachenko (1g, 2a) and Charles Wilson (1g) all added goals for the Griffins, who got 11 saves from Guido Cuccia.
The Griffins (10-6), who have won four straight, await to see who they will face in the playoffs on Saturday, when the brackets are released. The Griffins are ranked No.11.
The Patriots (9-6) have Pacific Coast League games at University and at home against Irvine on Thursday and Friday at 4 p.m. The Patriots, who have clinched the league crown, are currently No.18 in the recent coaches poll.
