Varsity roundup: St. Paul's upsets Boys' Latin in lacrosse

No. 4 St. Paul's pulled off its biggest win of the boys lacrosse season Tuesday behind five goals by Alex McGovern. The host Crusaders (13-5, 7-2 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference) upset No. 1 Boys' Latin, 12-10, to finish the regular season with four straight victories.

The victory claimed the second seed and a first-round bye for St. Paul's and marked the first win over the Lakers (14-4, 6-3) in five years. Boys' Latin will host fifth-seeded Loyola Blakefield in Friday's quarterfinal.


The Crusaders broke open a tight game when Dawes Milchling scored with 19.3 seconds left in the first half for a 4-3 lead. The goal started a 4-0 run, during which Ben Bagli had a goal and an assist.

St. Paul's scored six goals in the third quarter and took a 10-5 lead into the fourth quarter, when the Crusaders withstood a 5-2 Boys' Latin charge.


No. 6 Calvert Hall 15, No. 2 Loyola Blakefield 10: In last year's season finale, the Cardinals (12-5, 5-4) knocked the Dons (9-4, 6-3 MIAA A Conference) out of the playoffs.

On Tuesday, Calvert Hall knocked host Loyola Blakefield out of first place. The Cardinals, led by Jason Brown and Timmy Kelly with four goals each, used a 6-2 run in the third quarter to cement their lead.

Calvert Hall claimed the sixth and final seed in the playoffs and will travel to third seed St. Mary's on Friday.

Solid defense and a combination of winning ground balls and one-on-one offense built a 3-0 lead after 41/2 minutes had elapsed in the first quarter. The Dons tied the score twice in the first half. Back-to-back goals by Penn-bound Alex Rosener (four goals), including a behind-the-back score on the run, gave Loyola Blakefield its only lead, 6-5, with 2:16 left in the first half. Calvert Hall's Jacob Kelly scored his second goal of the game to tie the score with 55.2 seconds left in the first half.

"I told my guys not to worry about the score. Just give me a great effort," Calvert Hall coach Bryan Kelly said. "They knew what was on the line."

No. 5 St. Mary's 20, Mount Saint Joseph 9: Alex Woodall won 18 of 21 faceoffs and Jack Andrews and Bennett Johnson had four goals each to lead the host Saints (9-6, 6-3 MIAA A Conference) past the Gaels (8-10, 2-7).

The win captured the third seed for St.Mary's in the league tournament.

Archbishop Spalding 15, Severn 13: Nick Zepko had five goals to power the Cavaliers (5-12, 2-7 MIAA A Conference) past the host Admirals (6-9, 0-9).
