NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ – The Pioneers’ boys lacrosse program got back to its winning ways on Tuesday. Following back-to-back losses on Friday and Monday, New Providence dismantled Union City, 15-2, on Senior Day at Lieder Field.

Graduating seniors Jon Ebert and James Burke combined to score six goals, while junior Jack Harvey scored six of his own. Sophomore Quinn Killeen also notched a goal in the victory.
