Boy’s High School Weekend Recap: April 8

It was another solid weekend in the boy’s high school landscape, which featured a few teams recording statement wins. No. 1 Boys’ Latin (MD) traveled to three-time defending PIAA State Champion Conestoga (PA) and took down the Pioneers by an eye-opening final score of 18-3. After spending the first three minutes of the contest on defense, the Lakers went on an offensive tear, scoring seven goals to end the first and eight in the second for a commanding 15-0 halftime lead. In our Stat of the Week last Tuesday, we noted Delbarton (NJ) was just 2-6 against St. Antony’s (NY) since 2005, with the Green Wave giving up at least eight goals in each of the six losses, but fewer than eight in both wins (2006 and 2007). Recent history suggested holding the Friars under eight would bode well – and it did indeed. Delbarton took down St. Anthony’s, 7-3 on the road. Impressive early win for the Green Wave. ...

A Cherry Creek goal made the game 4-2, and a draw control for the Bruins had them on the attack again. But the Moorestown defense was up to the task, and after they were able to thwart a long Bruins possession, the Quakers ended the half with another three-goal spurt to take a 7-2 lead into the break. ...
