Younger Johnson keys Eagles with three secondhalf goals in win over Rams
For the North Point boys lacrosse team it was a family affair on Wednesday evening as it took on host McDonough in a Southern Maryland Athletic Conference Potomac Division contest.
Junior attack Brandon Johnson delivered with three of North Point’s four second-half goals en route to the 8-4 victory over the Rams.
“All three of my goals were man-up and I felt like the whole team contributed,” Johnson said.
While Johnson was the offensive juggernaut, his older brother and senior goalie Shane Johnson was a force on the defensive end, saving a game-high 25 shots on the day.
“It is nice to have a brother doing his thing on the offensive end and I’m on the defensive end,” said the older Johnson. “It’s always fun when we are on the field together and we do our part. Today, my saves helped the morale of the team and lifted us all up to finish the second half strong. When I get a saves it just motivates someone to get groundballs.”
Two of three triplets, juniors Dylan (2 goals) and Connor Staudmyer combined to score three first-half goals, while Timothy Staudmyer also played productive minutes at the attack position.
It was the second straight win for North Point (3-5, 3-0 Potomac), which has all of its
