Tyler Paulson, Tony Canha, Matt Davies, and Taymon Brown scored two goals apiece as the Vineyard varsity boys lacrosse team doubled up the Nauset Warriors 12-6 Saturday afternoon in a non-league contest at Dan McCarthy Field in Oak Bluffs.

The Vineyarders (4-3) seized control of the game by outscoring the Warriors 5-1 in the third quarter. Sam Burke, Mike Morris, Spencer Schofield, and Wayman Harrison scored the other Vineyard goals. Sam Burke (2), Taymon Brown, Austin Chandler, and Tyler Paulson had assists.

“All in all, I thought it was a pretty good win,” Vineyard coach Chris Greene said. “We still have some work to do but that was definitely the effect of a great practice yesterday. As I just said to the fellows, if we continue to work that hard every day in our practice sessions, then it translates on to the field.”
