Baltimore’s MIAA got the best of Philly’s elite today in boys’ lacrosse action.
And Conestoga, the three-time defending state champion, took a 17-3 loss on the chin to visiting Boys’ Latin, the top-ranked team in the TopLaxRecruits.com, Under Armour/Inside Lacrosse and Nike/US Lacrosse rankings.
No. 2 La Salle (2-2) was leading the No. 15 Greyhounds (6-1), 4-2, in the second half before the onslaught began.
Riley DeSmit scored with 2:40 left in the half to make it 4-3 and then Greene tied it for Gilman with 1:07 to play in the period.
Gilman took a 5-4 lead before Michael Rihm scored for La Salle early in the third period. Then Greene notched an incredible three goals – two after giveaways following face-off wins – within 31 seconds to make it 8-5. DeSmit later scored to make it 9-5 and Greene finished the job for the 10-5 final.
Andy Matthews added three assists for the Greyhounds and Tyler Ruhl and Chase Wittich also scored once.
Matt Rambo led La Salle with two goals while Steve Hudak and Adam Schaal also scored for the Explorers.
Meanwhile at Conestoga, Colin Heacock scored four goals in the first period and Boys’ Latin (10-0) built a 15-0 halftime edge over Conestoga.
Jake Scott scored two goals for the Pioneers (2-3), who have lost as many games as it did last year when it went 23-3 and spent much of the early season as the No. 1 team in the nation.
