After a 17-goal outburst in the opening round of the playoffs, West Morris Central’s boys lacrosse team met its match in the quarterfinals of the state tournament, losing to county rival Morristown Tuesday afternoon.
Central was the No. 2 seed in the North, Group 3 tournament, with Morristown the No. 7 seed. The Wolfpack obliterated Middletown North last weekend by a score of 17-0 in the first round.
Morristown will now face Randolph in the semifinal round Thursday for a shot at the title game. The other semifinal matchup includes top-seed Ridgewood hosting No. 4 seed Mendham, also scheduled for Thursday.
