Ryan Hilburn scored four goals and Joey Carlini had two goals and three assists while Charles Kelly won 16 of 24 face-offs as host Malvern Prep (PA) defeated Haverford School (PA), 13-7, Friday in Inter-Ac League boys’ lacrosse.
The Friars (8-1 overall, 3-1 league) remained one game behind first-place Episcopal Academy (4-0), while the Fords (8-4) fell to 3-1 and saw their eight-game win streak snapped.
Malvern Prep also stopped a different streak – a six-game losing streak to their arch-rival.
“It means a lot, especially for the seniors since we haven’t beaten them since we were freshmen,” said Carlini. “We figured if we played our game things would take care of themselves. We put the last loss behind us.”
Also for Malvern, Chris Hilburn had two goals and an assist and goalie Matt Barrett posted nine saves to earn the win.
Haverford School led, 2-1, in the first period until Malvern Prep scored five unanswered goals to seize a 6-2 lead. After that, the Fords never got closer than two goals.
Haverford did fight back within 7-5 and later 9-7 when Peter Blynn fed Gavin McBride (two goals) and then scored himself with 1:23 left in the third quarter. But Eddie McLoughlin scored with 52 seconds left in the period and Malvern dominated the final 12 minutes.
The Friars have now tied their win total for all of 2012 (8-10) under coach John McEvoy, who has rallied the team in his second term as head coach.
Gavin McBride led the Fords with two goals.
