Not close this time: Gilman rolls, 18-4 Boys lacrosse

April 08, 1993|By Roch Eric Kubatko | Roch Eric Kubatko,Staff Writer

The Gilman Greyhounds know what it's like to be in a dogfight this year, losing one game in double overtime and winning another by just two goals.

Yesterday wasn't one of those times.

Junior Mark Cornes and sophomore Lorne Smith combined for nine goals, and 10 different players scored for second-ranked Gilman in an 18-4 win at No. 15 Severn in an MSA A Conference game.

"We shot the ball real well for the first time all year," said Greyhounds coach John Tucker. "I thought if we could control the first quarter, our depth would shine through."

Gilman (4-1, 3-1) did just that, scoring the first five goals and taking a 6-1 lead. By halftime, it was 12-2 and Tucker began going deep into his bench.

Dylan Schlott scored twice for Gilman (4-1, 3-1), whose only loss came against No. 1 St. Paul's, 8-7, in two overtimes. The Greyhounds bounced back to defeat No. 3 Loyola, 7-5.

Scott Banerjee, Peter McGill, Todd Robin, Jim Zimmerman, Rob Carr, Stewart Kesmodel and Ned Dukehart each had one goal yesterday.

"That's a typical day for us," Tucker said. "We like to play a lot of people. We play 25 people on a consistent basis. It makes it fun for the kids."

Severn's first-year coach Mike Burnett didn't have much fun. His team was outshot, 22-10, in the first half and fell out of contention early.

"The MSA is so good that you've got to play good, hard lacrosse for 40 minutes. We haven't done that yet," he said.

Senior Dudley Dixon had two goals and an assist for Severn (2-3, 1-3). Rob Broseker and Jason Lonchar each scored once.

"[St. Paul's coach] Mitch Whiteley had it right when he said Severn has some very good players; they just don't have enough of them," Tucker said. "They'll only get better throughout the year."

Things couldn't have gotten much worse yesterday for the Admirals, who also have lost to St. Paul's, 21-3, and Loyola, 12-6.

Cornes (five goals) went around Severn defenders Tod Winchester and Broseker to score less than a minute into the game. McGill bounced off a couple of defenders and beat Severn goalkeeper Ben Harries (eight saves), and Smith drifted toward the net from the right side and scored with 5:51 left to make it 3-0.

Smith netted his second goal with 4:37 left and Cornes scored off a pass from Michael Alan (two assists) with 3:53 left.

Lonchar finally put the Admirals on the board when he converted a pass from Dixon with 1:52 left, but Cornes scored again before the end of the quarter.

Broseker fired a shot past Gilman sophomore goalkeeper Corey Popham (five saves) just 13 seconds into the second quarter, but the Greyhounds answered with six straight goals to remove any doubt about the outcome.
