McDonogh's Brad Dumont played sparingly with stress fractures in both legs during an earlier overtime loss at Boys' Latin, and teammate Ryan Floyd missed it completely with a stomach virus.

But Dumont scored three first-half goals and assisted on another goal yesterday, and Floyd had a goal and two assists -- all in the second half.

Their efforts helped third-ranked McDonogh (13-1, 2-1 league) gain its 10th straight win, 15-9, over No. 2 Boys' Latin (12-2, 2-1) in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference, Division I game at McDonogh.

McDonogh is 30-4 in its past 34 games, all four losses being in sudden death.

"With the injuries, this is only the second full game I've played," said Dumont, who will attend Princeton. "I got tired some, but I went hard against a good team."

McDonogh led 9-4 at the half despite Boys' Latin keeper Ryan Lafferty, who stopped five of the Eagles' first seven shots and finished with 26 saves.

The nine goals were unassisted as McDonogh scored off dodges or ground-ball pickups around the goal, often going one-on-one with Lafferty.

"Our goalie had a good game, but they outworked our defense, which couldn't get the ball off the carpet," said Lakers coach Bob Shriver. "We gave them too many second chances. Second-chance goals kill you."

The first of Brennan Adams' three goals capped a 4-0 run for a 9-3 lead -- one of the Eagles' four six-goal leads in the game -- with 5: 39 left in the first half.

McDonogh's Bobby Benson scored three first-half goals, and Matt Primm scored two goals in each half and had an assist.

"We were clicking for the first time in a while," said Primm, who is headed for Harvard. "They played some zone in the second half, a lot of settle-down and quick slides. But we were able to move the ball, score some goals."

McDonogh had assists on the first five of its six second-half goals.

Boys' Latin's Dan Lamonica scored twice with two assists, and Chris Edwards, Dan Berger and Hunter Lochte scored twice each for the Lakers, who had trouble getting past defenders Joe Rosenbaum, Evan Weinberg, Matt Harrison, Jay Mayes, Jon Cole and Vinnie Ciarpella.

"We moved out on Lamonica, their most dangerous shooter," said keeper Rob Scherr, who had 21 saves. "Not one person didn't play well."
