Boys lacrosse

For a decade now it's been the same story in Carroll County boys lacrosse: South Carroll is the county's best, with the rest a step or two behind.

Last night in Winfield, the No. 12 Cavaliers made it official once again with their 14-6 win over visiting Liberty, improving to 7-1 overall and 5-0 in county play.

Seniors Dave Price and Shawn Waters each scored three goals and senior goalkeeper Kjeld Lauritzen turned back 11 Liberty shots to lead the Cavaliers.

"Lacrosse is a big sport at South Carroll, and the guys look forward to the lacrosse season. They're dedicated, and there's a lot of tradition and pride in our school when it comes to lacrosse," said South Carroll third-year coach Jeff Alisauckas.

After the Lions scored the game's opening goal, the Cavaliers answered with the last five goals of the first quarter -- each by a different player.

L So what separates South Carroll from the rest of the county?

"Execution and speed -- those are two big ones there," said Liberty coach Troy Barnes. "They executed their game plan and we didn't. I think we're ready to play and ready to beat them and it never happens. . . . It's frustrating."

All season long the Cavaliers have always found an answer when opponent comes at them. After Tom Freedman gave Liberty (6-4, 3-2) a 1-0 lead with 6: 07 left in the first quarter, the Cavaliers were quick to respond.

Price, who dominated the midfield most of the game, got the Cavaliers even a minute later and the Cavaliers had the lead for good when Rob Witte (two goals, 31 on the season) scored falling down 17 seconds later. Waters' underhand scoop with 12 seconds left in the quarter gave the Cavaliers a 5-1 lead and they were on their way.

"I was here two years ago and it felt good then, and it feels just as good tonight," said Price. "Coach [Alisauckas] does a great job. We have so much respect for him. He looks at every game and knows what we have to do."

After Liberty opened the second half with two straight goals to cut the lead to 7-4, South Carroll went back to work with four unanswered goals. Senior Charlie Gibson dodged two defenders get in front to get the run started.

Brett Dobelstein scored two goals and added two assists to lead Liberty, which got a strong defensive effort from Ryan Pagels. Jason Weisenborn had two goals and two assists for the Cavaliers.
