The No. 2 Friars are expecting to spread out the scoring this season, but, so far, Schlee has done more than his share.

In Friday’s 3-1 win over No. 7 Loyola Blakefield, the junior forward scored three goals in the final eight minutes to turn a 1-0 deficit into a big Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference win for the Friars.

Schlee tied the game when he redirected a cross off a free kick with eight minutes to play. His game-winning goal came shortly after when he pounced on a rebound, and he added an insurance goal to help the Friars (3-1-1) start 2-0 in the league.

In the Friars’ 3-1 league-opening win at Calvert Hall on Sept. 6, Schlee also scored the game-winning goal.

Last season, his first on varsity, Schlee finished with three goals and one assist.
