DALTON — Excitement, the thrill of victory, and the realization of clinching a spot in the Final Four. The Wahconah boys showed strong physicality and excellent transition offense in a 22-7 win over Lynnfield on Tuesday in a quarterfinal of the MIAA Division IV State Lacrosse Tournament.

“It’s amazing, I did this in football and came up short in the state championship, so to come out and finish it off is amazing,” said senior midfielder Jonah Smith.
