JT Bugliosi (Ohio State commit) scored his third goal of the game with 55 seconds left in overtime as visiting Calvert Hall (MD) defeated Malvern Prep (PA), 7-6, today in a battle of Top 10 teams.
The Cardinals, ranked No. 8 in the C2C North America Rankings, improved to 5-1 while the No. 5 Friars fell to 3-1.
Calvert Hall coach Bryan Kelly said he called a time out to set up a play to isolate Bugliosi in that last minute.
“They were shutting off Jacob (Kelly) and Jack (Kinnear), so we moved them behind the goal and played 4-on-4,” said coach Kelly. “We thought JT could beat his guy. We cleared it out and he went down the lane and had a nice bounce shot for the game-winner.”
Both goalies played brilliant games as Joe McSorley (Boston University signee) had 19 saves for the Cardinals and Andrew Clark stopped 9 shots for Malvern Prep.
Kinnear (Villanova signee) had two goals and an assist and Kelly (the coach’s son, a 2018 UNC commit) had three assists for Calvert Hall.
“It was a great game; Malvern played great it could have gone either way,” said Bryan Kelly. ‘Both goalies played outstanding. I felt like it was a 12-11 game with a lot of good up and down play. Both teams played well.”
Malvern tied the game, 6-6, on a goal by with 6:05 left in regulation and then the defenses and goalies clamped down.
Sean Christman, a 2017 Fairfield commit who has been dominant all year for Malvern Prep at the face-off X, won 8 of 15 draws. But Calvert Hall figured a way to neutralize him in the second half.
“Christman dominated us early and we had a tough time clearing,” said Kelly. “They had multiple second chance opportunities. We didn’t have the ball a lot. So we felt we would tie them up at the X and we got some good wing play and executed well as the game went on.”
