O’FALLON – Last Friday evening, the O’Fallon Boy’s Lacrosse program recognized and honored its eight 2019 graduating seniors and their parents in front of a home crowd before playing Parkway West. 

For the senior boys, it was a bitter sweet event; however, the future looks bright for these young men. Donovan Balisteri (#33) will be playing junior hockey for the Milwaukee Power,  Josh Bjornson (#11) will be attending Liberty University and majoring in Computer Systems, Nolan Bradley (#10) will be attending Penn State University and studying engineering, Evan Carney (#19) plans on joining the Air National Guard, Brooks Hackney (#21) will be attending Missouri State University,  Gabriel Picato (#12) will be attending college to study mechanical engineering, James Randolph (#25) will be attending Rockhurst University to study civil engineering, and Daniel Walker (#35) will be attending SEMO to study mechanical engineering.

Following the pre-game ceremony, the O’Fallon Varsity Boy’s Lacrosse team captured a win against Parkway West on this honorary night with a score of 12-4. Several Panthers scored to garner the win, but it was a total team effort that resulted in the final score. Josh McIntyre led the scoring with 5 goals, Braden Gaab scored 4 goals and had 2 assists, Nolan Bradley scored 1 goal with 3 assists, and both Evan Carney and Nick Johnson added to the score with a goal each. 

The defense had a strong performance keeping Parkway West off balance.  Goalie, Tommy Fulford, played tough with 7 saves and allowed only 4 goals. The Panthers close out the home-game schedule against Ladue this week.
