Week 2 of the ULAX NYC box lacrosse league saw two 1-0 teams go head to head and two 0-1 teams match up. One game was exceptionally tight, and through four games the largest winning margin has been 7 goals. Both LAS games have been decided by 1 goal.
LaxAllStars.com eked out the OT win last week, but fell to league newcomer Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubish 13-12 this week. Quinn Moroney (Manhasset headed to Amherst) and the brothers Wenk (Thomas and Jimmy) continue to lead the charge offensively for BTM, while John Ray backstops the defense in net.
This is a team of Long Islanders, many of whom are from Manhasset, and their presence has brought a new level of excitement to the league. The NYC guys are thrilled to have a great new team to play against, and appreciate the fact that the guys come all the way from out on the Island to play with us.

Gotham got nice production and play from Matt Witko, Ryan Molloy, CJ Greene, Pete Sayia, Mark Powers and Brian Ray, while Brooklyn was led by Chris Tiernan, Drew Gieger, Matthew Denis and Rudy Martinez. Tim Condus was tough again in goal for the Dodgers.
