Members of the Lakers, who competed in Division II during the regular season, take a moment during a 2-0 loss at Essex High School in the Division I semifinals. Steve Ferreira, the Essex head coach since 1968, said in 2003 that the game drew between 1,200 and 1,500 fans - the most he'd ever seen for a game at Essex High School.
