Undefeated Delbarton (N.J.) won some respect for New Jersey lacrosse and also moved up to the No. 2 spot in this week’s rankings Saturday when it defeated former No. 4 Chaminade, 6-5.

Matt Killian (two goals) scored the game-winner with 3.9 seconds remaining as the Green Wave (16-0) rallied from a 5-3 deficit heading into the final quarter.

Kevin Lewis led Delbarton with two goals and an assist while Tommy Fowler and Austin Williams each scored once. John Schisler made seven saves in the victory.

Sean Cerrone scored a pair of goals and Dan Fowler made seven saves for the No. 9 Flyers (14-2).

Inter-Ac Invitational semis today

Top-seeded and No. 6 Malvern Prep (PA) faces Lawrenceville School (N.J.) today at 5 p.m. in the first game of the Inter-Ac Invitational semifinal doubleheader at Cabrini College (PA). The other matchup is intriguing as Inter-Ac rivals Episcopal Academy (15-5) and Haverford School (12-7) meet at 7 p.m. Haverford toppled the Churchmen, 11-6, 10 days ago to knocked them out of tie for first place and a shot to share (with Malvern Prep) the title, which they last won in 1998.
