Bedford boys' lacross tops St. Thomas of Dover; streak now 55
The Bulldogs win streak is now a national-best 55 games. They are 15-0 on the season. The Saints fell to 9-2.
“I thought our defense played phenomenal today,” said Bedford coach Matt Guerard. “I think it was the best all-around defensive game we’ve had. Almost perfect.
“This is the best team any of us are going to see,” said St. Thomas coach Barry Katz. “Their goalie made the kind of saves you expect from a championship team.”
“They had to take mostly outside shots,” said Guerard. “When you give (Bedford goalie) Matt (Howe) 14-15 yards to look at a shot, there’s a pretty good chance he’s going to save it.”
“They haven’t won this many in a row if they can’t play defense,” said Katz. “And they held the ball. The time of possession was way out of whack.
“We pride ourselves on defense and how well we play one-on-one,” said Guerard. “Today we showed we have a strong defense. (St. Thomas) had to earn the three they scored.”
