The Bulldogs were led by Pat Ward who scored two goals.
The Canton High boys' lacrosse team was held to their lowest goal total of the season in a close win against Oliver Ames Wednesday afternoon to remain undefeated. The Canton boys beat OA, 3-2, in a hard fought, defensive game. “We started off slowly in the game and I think it took us a while to figure out this is a good team,” said Canton head coach Bill Bendell said of the Tigers. “The OA-Canton games are always great games.” The Tigers scored first in the first quarter before giving up two straight goals to Pat Ward before the end of the first half. “Pat didn’t have his best game," said Canton head coach Bill Bendell. “But he’s so clutch. He’s one of the best offensive players in the league. They were hard to come by, their goalie played…

The score was tied, 5-5, heading into the seventh inning.
The Canton High varsity softball team lost to Stoughton, 10-5, at home Friday afternoon. With the game tied, 5-5, heading into the seventh inning, Canton pitcher Sarah Reissfelder gave up five runs before an out was recorded in the final frame. “Before the game the big thing for us, our goal was to play seven [innings]. We’ve been playing an awesome four or five innings," said Canton head coach Ed Amico. "But they’re a good team and that seventh inning we gave up five runs. It’s always one inning every game.” The Black Knights had a 4-0 lead through three innings when Canton scored four runs to tie the game in the bottom of the 4th. “We helped them out by giving them three errors that inning,” Stoughton head coach Janet Sullivan said. “…

Patch editor gives a first-hand report from the Boston Marathon.
Monday, April 15 was my first time running the Boston Marathon. It was suppose to be a fun day focused on overcoming a strenuous 26.2-mile race, but once I reached the end, I was greeted with panic, caution and tears rather than high fives and celebrations. Monday was a perfect day for a runner and spectator, it was sunny and warm with a cool breeze. It would be hard to find an excuse why anyone with the day off from work wouldn’t be in town to either watch the race, the Sox game or to grab a bite at a restaurant. I was running this marathon as a bandit. I had no official number and was nervous security or someone from the Boston Athletic Association would kick me out. Once I reached the start line, it was smooth sailing. I was full of …
