Changing of the guard in TVL lax
Oh, how things have changed in the Tri-Valley League boys' lacrosse landscape.
First, No. 24 Hopkinton dealt No. 10 Medfield its first league loss in 119 games to start the week. Then, Thursday night, No. 9 Dover-Sherborn became the first team not named Medfield to claim the TVL crown.
The Raiders (15-2, 11-1 TVL) beat Medfield, 7-5, in Dover to earn their first league title in the TVL's 11-year history and dealt the Warriors (11-6, 9-2) their second straight TVL loss. Billy Polk spearheaded the Raider offense, scoring a hat trick.
In the teams' first meeting, Medfield beat D-S, 8-5, on April 29.
