Midway through league play with a 2-2 mark, defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion McDonogh was home against St. Paul's on Tuesday. The Eagles weren't in desperate need of a win, but certainly close.
No. 3 McDonogh was aware of the importance and responded favorably.
Sophomore Liam Powderly (three goals, two assists) and senior Jack Parr (three goals and an assist) provided much of the offense, Chris Wilson was strong on faceoffs (winning 12 of 19) and the Eagles' man-down unit stood its ground in a 12-7 win over the No. 5 Crusaders.
McDonogh improves to 11-3 overall and is now 3-2 in the MIAA A going into Thursday's home game...
