Gompers, Rennie help Arundel fend off No. 15 River Hill, 10-8

March 24, 2000|By Glenn Graham

The Arundel Wildcats boys lacrosse team came out fast yesterday and spent the rest of the afternoon at River Hill capably protecting their lead, responding to every push the No. 15-ranked Hawks provided.

Most of the answers came from Chase Gompers' creativity on offense and Dave Rennie's timely saves in the cage.

And after the Wildcats ran off the last two minutes of regulation, they left with a satisfying 10-8, season-opening win.

Rennie, who replaced second-team All-County goalie Matt Milloy, came up with two of his saves in the opening minutes before the Wildcats settled in.

When they did, they built a 5-1 lead behind Gompers (four goals, two assists) and Jay King.

The Hawks, who got four goals from Jon Clark and a two-goal, four-assist effort from Scott Kenworthy, closed within one goal twice, but Gompers and company never let it get any closer.
