Kenwood boys lax tops Chesapeake 9-3
The Kenwood boys lacrosse team won two of three games last week, bouncing back from a onesided loss to Sparrows Point with victories over area rivals Patapsco and Chesapeake.
The 13-4 loss at Sparrows Point on April 5 mainly hurt the Bluebirds’ pride, with the Pointers now being in the Baltimore County Division I.
Chesapeake and Patapsco were Division II games, and the Bluebirds blanked the visiting Patriots 15-0 on April 5 and defeated the visiting Bayhawks 9-3 on Friday.
That boosted Kenwood’s division record to 3-1. The Bluebirds will play at Pikesville in a key division game on April 19.
Eastern Tech (2-3) has been playing a series of close games. The Mavericks have been involved in three consecutive games decided by one goal.
The Mavericks lost to visiting Friends on Friday 11-10; lost at Dulaney 8-7 on April 5; and beat visiting Franklin 10-9 on March 29.
Eastern Tech’s other loss was a two-goal affair, losing at Perry Hall 8-6 on March 24. The Mavericks won at Aberdeen 12-4 on March 27, meaning they have outscored opponents 45-40 despite having a losing record.
Against Dulaney, Eastern Tech had a shot to tie the score in the closing seconds, but it was turned away by the Lion goalie.
Against Franklin, the Mavericks were down by a goal and a down by a player in the last two minutes. But Eastern Tech regained possession with a save by goalie Jacob Lantz, tied the game with 30 seconds remaining in regulation and won in overtime.
Kai Kressman scored three goals, while Matt Davies and Nolan Bosserman each had two goals.
The Mavericks host Catonsville on April 21 in their first game back from the break, then host Sparrows Point on April 26.
Chesapeake is 3-2 after the loss to Kenwood. The Bayhawks beat Randallstown 13-9 on April 5; beat Carver A&T 10-0 on March 29; and beat Woodlawn 13-0 on March 24..
