It was a wet, cold and windy night last Tuesday, April 14, when the Forest Hills Central Rangers brought their state-ranked team to East Rockford Middle School for a game with the Rams. The Rangers’ offense proved a bit too potent for the Rams as Forest Hills prevailed 7-5. Jeremy Pouba scored three times, with Shea Mills and Ray Sabon each adding one. Travis Guest, Pouba and Mitch Newton each had an assist.

On Thursday, April 16, the first-ever boys lacrosse game was held at Ted Carlson Memorial Stadium. On this night, the Rams scored early and often as they handed the visitors from Holt High School a 17-2 loss. Nine different players found the back of the net for Rockford. Mills led all scorers with four goals, George McConnell and Derek Korthuis each added three, George Karam had two, and single goals went to Cody Cantu, Michael DeWitt, Josh Belanger, CJ Scholl and Sabon.

The Rams will play one more game at Ted Carlson Memorial Stadium this season and then finish up their home schedule at East Rockford Middle School. On Wednesday, April 29, they’ll face off at 7:30 p.m. against Lansing Waverly at Ted Carlson Memorial Stadium.

On Saturday, May 2, at Forest Hills Central High School, the boys teams from Rockford and Forest Hills Central will compete in the Battle of the “Ramger” tournament, with all proceeds to benefit the American Cancer Society. Beginning at 9 a.m., teams from these two programs will compete at six different levels-third- and fourth-graders, fifth- and sixth-graders, seventh- and eighth-graders, freshmen, junior varsity, and varsity, who will take the field at 7 p.m. Commemorative t-shirts have been designed for this event and are available from any Rockford boys lacrosse player for $10. Wearing the t-shirt to Forest Hills Central on the day of the event is your admission to the day’s activities. More information related to this event is available on the team’s website at www.rockfordlacrosse.org.
