PMHS boys lacrosse season ends with defeat in regional final


Eric Elbery (6) scores a goal in the regional final.

The PMHS boys lacrosse team fell to Section 2 champion Burnt Hill-Balston Lake 12-5 in a New York State Class C regional final on Saturday.

Pelham was well in the game into the fourth quarter, but a dominant performance by Burnt Hill-Balston Lake at the face-off spelled the end for the Pelicans.

Despite the loss, the season must be considered a big success for the PMHS squad. They won their second-ever section title and have plenty to look forward to next season. The return of big-time contributors such as juniors Henry Moderelli, Callum Reen and Eric Elbery, among other players, should be instrumental as the Pelicans look to defend their Section 1 title in the 2023 season.
