Defense lifts Marriotts Ridge boys lacrosse past Howard, 5-1

Marriotts Ridge coach Tony Incontrera made sure to mention all five of his long-pole defenders after the Mustangs’ season opening win against visiting Howard on Friday night. It was only fitting after the unit’s dominant performance in front of All-County goalie Colin Kelley.

“Ricky Fedorchak, Andrew Page, Quinn Kelley, Patrick Greene and Ben Ward. All five of our poles played really well,” Incontrera said. “Short sticks did a good job of taking them off of their straight-line dodges. That was the game plan: to make our poles a presence out there. ... And Colin Kelley, he made a bunch of saves he had no business making.”
