As long as a team is still playing their season, there is always another story.
Now an update on the Malden sport stories we’ve brought to you so far in May here at Neighborhood View:
Update for: Put Me in Coach Interview with Martin Horkan from 5/1/14:
The Mystic Valley Regional Charter School Eagles lacrosse team, led by Coach Marty Horkan qualified for the Division 3 State Tournament with their 9th win of the season over Greater Lowell. The Eagles also clinched the Commonwealth Large Conference with their 10th victory of the season over the New England Vocational Tech Knights.

Update for: NCAA Spring LAX Tournaments Include Malden Athletes Pt. 1 of 2 from 5/5/14:
Springfield College defeated Western New England at home by a score of 19-13, in the 1st round of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Tournament. Malden’s Dom Roberto tallied three goals in the game including a left side dodge that beat the Western net minder to start the 2nd quarter and a shot in transition for the closing goal of the contest. The Pride will go on to face Cortland State on Saturday 5/10 in the 2nd round of the tournament.
Tufts beat up Emmanuel in the 1st round of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Tournament. The Emmanuel Saints were appearing in their first NCAA tournament game in the team’s short three-year history. The scene at Bello Field in Medford was humbling to the Saints as the Jumbos showed why they are the No. 2 scoring team in the nation, netting 19 goals in the 1st half. Malden’s Evan Dolber fought to the net and scored one for Emmanuel in the final minute before the intermission. The final 24-2.
