Shrewsbury – The St. John’s High School Pioneers hosted the Algonquin Regional High School Tomahawks for a boys’  lacrosse game May 17.

St. John’s’ Jared Ward (assisted by Andrew Smiley) scored first, but Algonquin’s Zach Skowronek (assisted by Paul Luongo) quickly tied it up. The Tomahawks pulled ahead 4-2 at the end of the first quarter.  The Pioneers battled back however, and the score was tied 6-6 at the half.

In the third quarter, each team only scored once, and the quarter ended in a 7-7 tie.  The fourth quarter saw the Pioneers pull ahead to win 10-7.
