Lax World wins CALL title

THE BALTIMORE SUN

Bart Aldridge (Delaware, Loyola High) scored three goals and had an assist en route to capturing Most Valuable Player honors as Lax World defeated Westchester/Beck & Wheatley, 16-14, for the Central Atlantic Lacrosse League title last night at Norris Field.

Westchester, the defending CALL champion, jumped to a 3-1 lead when Michael Hoynes fed fellow West Point alum Rob Betchley with 5:53 left in the first quarter.

But Lax World's Tom Gravante, a former Hobart star who coaches Mount St. Mary's, scored the last goal of the first quarter and the first

of the second to begin a 6-1 run that gave Lax World a 7-4 halftime lead.

It was a deficit that Westchester would never recover from, as the New York-area club pulled within two goals of the lead five times, but Baltimore-based Lax World answered each time.

Westchester .. 3 .. 1 .. 5 .. 5 .. -- .. 14

Lax World .... 2 .. 5 .. 5 .. 4 .. -- .. 16
