After opening the season with two losses – as many as it had all of last year – Calvert Hall (MD) has rebounded with two impressive victories.
The visiting Cardinals scored six goals in the third period and coasted to a 10-3 victory over three-time defending Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association champion Conestoga today in boys’ lacrosse.
Calvert Hall, the defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association champs, have outscored their last two foes by a 30-4 count after opening with losses to Canada’s Hill Academy (10-7) and DC’s Gonzaga (10-8).
“We played better defensively, that’s the best we have played this year,” said Calvert Hall coach Bryan Kelly, whose Cards fell to Conestoga last year early in the season. “And they can take you out of your offense since they pressure you so much. But we settled in.”
The score could have been worse if not for Conestoga senior goalie Robbie Zonino (14 saves).
“Their goalie played great,” said Kelly. “He is a good player.”
