Towson gave host Dulaney an inkling of what it was in for during the first 14 seconds of play in a game between the heated rivals Thursday afternoon.

Joe Boozer controlled the faceoff, got the ball to Aidan Ryan, who fed Jack Ware.

Ware, a senior attackman, then drilled a shot past goalkeeper Matthew Stidham.

Ware wound up with four goals and two assists and teammate Jordan Hummel finished with a game-high five as Towson rolled to a 13-6 victory over the Lions in Timonium.

"Hummel had the best game of his career," Towson coach John Cummings said. "He was dodging hard and shooting well. He was really buying into the offense."

It was the first victory in Cummings' five seasons over Dulaney (7-6).

"I think today was one of our better games," said Cummings, whose team held an 40-28 advantage in shots. "It was big one for us to get this win. I remember growing up and always going to the Towson-Dulaney game at Towson University. We have a rich history between the schools and it's great to beat them."

Boozer, a senior, won 13 of 22 faceoffs.

After Towson's first goal, Dulaney ran off three consecutive goals over the next nine minutes. They came from Zach Swanson, Jake Bellinger and Robby Foster.

Towson (9-2) rebounded from the 3-1 hole to score four times in first 7:38 of the second quarter to make it 6-3 — the halftime score.

Ware had a pair of goals during that stretch.

"Our offense is really coming together and shooting well and playing well," Cummings said.

Towson owned much of the third quarter as the Generals boosted its lead to 9-4 by the end of the period.

Towson continued to assert itself in the final period and pushed its advantage to 12-4 by the middle of it.

Senior goalie Alton Curry made 11 saves stops for Towson.

Tommie Parker, Shane Grogan and Garrett Michael also scored for Dulaney.

"We were inconsistent today," Dulaney coach Kyle Fiat said. "The offense and defense showed some pretty good flashes, but we didn't do it throughout the game."
