The No. 4 McDonogh boys lacrosse team and host No. 2 Calvert Hall were only able to get in 3:42 of play Friday before the game was suspended because of rain.
When play resumed Saturday, the Eagles (9-3, 3-1 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference) got off to a sluggish start, but they played lockdown defense in the second half to win, 9-6.
"Calvert Hall outplayed us in the second quarter," McDonogh coach Andy Hilgartner said. "But our defense stepped it up in the second half and only gave up one goal."
The Cardinals (7-3, 3-1) led 5-4 at the break, and their only goal of the second half, by Tim Kelly, came with nine seconds left in the third to tie the score at 6. Villanova-bound Austin Frederick (two goals) put McDonogh ahead with 8:35 left in the game.
