Landon pulls away from Annapolis

March 23, 2000|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

The Landon boys lacrosse team, ranked No. 1 nationally out of Bethesda, scored five unanswered goals in the second half yesterday to pull away from visiting Annapolis, 9-3.

It was the season opener for both teams.

"They came out in the second half and played a lot tighter zone, like a sagging man-to-man defense and we couldn't crack it," said Annapolis coach John German. "We tried to feed it inside and put a lot of balls on the ground. They were a little bigger than us and came up with more of the ground balls."

Josh Lesko scored all three goals for the No. 8 Panthers, who got a 21-save performance from goalie Robby Haberlein.

Ted Hayes led the Landon attack with four goals and one assist. Landon had a 45-30 edge in ground balls won, dominating the category in the pivotal second half.
