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..
