Some Friendly OPC Lacrosse

Practice what you preach . . . Exhibit A.

Aside from being the offensive coordinator for PC's boys lacrosse varsity, Ryan Danehy is friends with some former Quakers.

Thus, he competed against the varsity Saturday for OPCs and Friends in a game that opened the season. And . . . he scored the game-winning goal with eight seconds remaining! Positioning himself in a perfect spot, maybe eight yards out and a shade to the left, Danehy took a pass from Brad Loizeaux and fired a shot that created the 10-9 final score.

With 1:34 left, off a feed from junior Luke Stansfield, senior Cody Sweeney had scored to enable the varsity to make it 9-9.

OPCs and Friends included nine PC grads: Liam Resch OPC '08, Mike OPC '09 and Joe Rauchut OPC '07, goalie Dan Carr OPC '09, R.J. Lyons OPC '06, varsity assistant Billy McKinney OPC '01, Brian Teuber OPC '07, Dave Gaunt OPC '03 and Henry Bartlett OPC '03.
