Spencer Schofield scored his second goal of the game with 37 seconds remaining to give the Vineyard boys varsity lacrosse team an 8-7 win over Bishop Feehan Tuesday at Dan McCarthy Field. The win gave the Vineyarders a season sweep over their Eastern Athletic Conference rivals. M.V. defeated the Shamrocks by an identical 8-7 count in the season opener April 1 in Attleboro.

After Feehan had rallied from a 7-5 deficit with two quick strikes, Schofield scored the winner 23 seconds later by circling the Shamrocks’ cage and shooting at close range.

“It’s funny, we’ve been working with Spencer Schofield on running around — he’s the guy who plays keep-away,” Martha’s Vineyard coach Chris Greene said after the win. “He worked his magic and gave us that last goal.”

Mike Morris also scored a pair of goals for the Vineyarders, while Tyler Paulson, Sam Burke, Tony Canha, and Mike Mazza tallied once. Canha, Taymon Brown, Austin Chandler, and Andrew Fournier added assists.

Eli Lakin (three saves on seven shots) and Cooper Wilson (six saves on 10 shots) shared the goaltending duties.
