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.

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.
