Jake Carraway scored three goals and assisted on one, and nine other players scored for the No. 6 St. Mary's boys lacrosse team in a 15-9 victory over visiting Severn on Friday.
The Saints improved to 5-3 in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference and can clinch a playoff berth with a victory over Mount Saint Joseph on Tuesday. St. Mary's also moved into sole possession of fifth place by virtue of Calvert Hall's loss to McDonogh. Should the Saints lose to the Gaels, they can still qualify for the postseason if Gilman loses to McDonogh.
Sean Mooney, Jack Andrews and Nick Boyles each added two goals and an assist and Timmy Troutner stopped 14 shots for St. Mary's, which won its third straight and eighth in the past nine meetings with the Admirals.
Tyler Perreten, Michael Lamon and Hunter Tyler each scored two goals for Severn, which lost its eighth straight in conference play. Three of the losses have been by three goals or fewer.
