The postseason felt like it started a little early for members of Newtown High School’s boys’ lacrosse team, as they tangled in an inter-conference battle with the FCIAC’s Staples of Westport squad at Blue & Gold Stadium on May 15.
Despite coming up a goal short, falling 5-4, the team enters into the actual postseason with reason for optimism. Not only did the Nighthawks rebound for a win over fellow South-West Conference team Brookfield on May 20, but they had reason to be confident following that Staples game.

Newtown High School’s boys’ lacrosse team has certainly had some bright spots in the early stages of the campaign: A season-opening 13-3 triumph over Pomperaug of Southbury, overcoming a four-goal deficit to nearly shock the New Fairfield Rebels, and a victory at Weston lead the list heading into this week.
The Nighthawks ended a tough stretch of three consecutive setbacks with an 8-2 win over Weston on April 16, as they handed the Trojans their first loss after a 4-0 start, and improved to 2-3 to begin the campaign.
