Ridgefield became the fourth team ranked in the Top 10 of the LaxLessons.com Top 25 regional rankings to suffer an upset loss this week.
The Tigers fell to visiting New Jersey prep school power Lawrenceville 12-11 today at Tiger Hollow Stadium.
Ridgefield also suffered another major loss when its top defenseman, John Mirra, suffered a knee injury in the first quarter. He could be sidelined for the remainder of the year. The Tigers also learned before the game that faceoff specialist Duncan Morrissey would be unavailable for the game. He is likely to be sidelined through the end of the regular season. Lawrenceville capitalized on his absence by dominating on faceoffs today.
Still Ridgefield appeared to be in control when it jumped out to a 5-1 lead. Lawrenceville then went on a 5-1 run to go ahead 6-5.
Earlier this week, Shoreham-Wading River, Rocky Point and the region’s top-ranked team, West Islip, suffered upset losses.
