No. 5 Bruins turn back Falcons, 9-5 Boys lacrosse

April 14, 1993|By Steven Kivinski | Steven Kivinski,Contributing Writer

Veteran coach Ed Ulrich said he learned a lot about his unranked Severna Park boys lacrosse team after watching it fall to visiting archrival Broadneck last night, 9-5.

"We learned that we're not as good as we thought we were," said Ulrich. "We didn't play a very smart game and we gave the ball away too much."

The fifth-ranked Bruins (3-2) scored first, when senior midfielder Jeremy Ogas connected off on a feed from senior attackman Matt Ploss.

The Falcons (3-1) answered with an unassisted goal by John Miller to make it 1-1 with 6:24 left in the first quarter.

Broadneck took the lead again at the 5:08 mark on a goal by Dave Frederick, but the Falcons quickly countered with an unassisted goal by Max Kuker.

Owen Glister gave Severna Park its first lead when he redirected a pass from teammate Steve Rupp with 6:49 to go in the half.

The Bruins struck back with goals by Ogas and Ploss to take a 4-3 lead, only to see Kuker knot the score at 4 on a pass from Matt Wagner.

Broadneck got the final say in the half, however, as Ogas scored an unassisted goal with 40 seconds left to give the Bruins a 5-4 lead.

Led by junior attackman Bob Hanna (three goals, two assists), the Bruins scored two unanswered goals in the third quarter. Hanna scored unassisted at the 7:56 mark and added one with 20 seconds left on an assist from Rob Eckman to make it 7-4.

"We were patient tonight on offense, and that really helped," Hanna said. "We've been a little impatient lately and we haven't scored many goals, but we spread things out, worked the ball around and got some good goals."

Said Bruins coach Clay White: "Severna Park is a very explosive team, but we have a great defense and I think it showed tonight."
