Boys lacrosse teams from Bel Air, C. Milton Wright, Fallston, North Harford and Havre de Grace were all winners Friday in region playoffs.

C. Milton Wright advanced into the Class 3A North, Section II final with a convincing 17-4 win over host Aberdeen.


The Mustangs (8-5) scored six straight goals in the first quarter and led 6-0 at the end of the quarter.

Aberdeen (8-4) had a few chances in that opening quarter, but the Eagles lost possession without a shot or the shots were not real tough and easily turned away by Mustangs starting goalie Jon Saulsbury.


Blane Dail opened the scoring just over a minute in with assist from Fitz Brock (one goal, two assists). Alex Hardy, Quinten Hatfield and Joe Canepa (three goals) also scored in the quarter and Brent Moody (three goals) scored two.

“We were very pleased with what we did today, in the first, came off hot, had 6-0 in the first quarter,” Moody said. “Then just kept on going, didn’t really hold back.”

Aberdeen's (8-4) Frank Eufemia opened the second quarter scoring with his only goal, but CMW scored five of the next six for an 11-2 halftime lead.

Ryan Roszko, Brennan Lorence (assist) and Brock scored, before Aberdeen got its second goal from Connor Davis with 1:23 to play in the half.

The Mustangs closed the half with Moody and Canepa goals. Canepa’s goal came on a beautiful give-and-go with teammate Gavin Atkinson 6.0 left. “Most of the work goes on with the people around the ball, not the person who just scored,” Canepa said. “It’s all about whoever gives you the ball, because you wouldn’t be scoring if nobody gave you the ball.”

Aiden Moran opened the scoring in the second half and he added two more in the final quarter to finish with three goals.

Nick Domzalski and Canepa also scored in the third quarter for CMW, while Cade Bergeron scored his lone goal for the Eagles.

The Mustangs closed out the game with another 3-1 scoring advantage in the fourth quarter. Moran scored his final two and Atkinson added the final goal.

Aberdeen’s final goal was scored by Kyle Addy.

“We knew what their philosophy is, we knew they were going to put a lot of pressure on us,” Eagles coach Pat Mull said. “So, we kind of tried to stick to our game plan for that, expecting them to kind of throw us out of our rhythm that we’re accustomed to, so we just tried to adjust to that. Didn’t do as well as I’d have liked. I think, initially we had a couple good looks early on and that could have given us some confidence.”

CMW goalie Salsbury made four saves and Colin Gardiner came on to make three saves. Joe Bridges also saw time, but made no saves.

Aberdeen goalie Nick Pappas made six saves.
