Senior Blake O'Shaughnessy scored four goals, and junior Ian Loizeaux had two goals and a pair of assists for No. 5 Boys' Latin in an 11-7 upset victory over third-ranked Severn at Loyola College's Curley Field yesterday.
The Lakers (8-1), whose top returning scorer had only 10 goals last spring, were only the third team to score in double figures against Princeton-bound keeper Matt Larkin (15 saves), who was lifted with the Lakers up 9-4. Larkin is considered one of the nation's top two goalies.
Bobby Griebe (one goal, two assists), Brian Read (two goals), and Drew Peace and Mike Cheek (one goal each) were part of an offense that followed assistant coach Rick Brocato's instructions to get in tight and "freeze" Larkin with point-blank shots.
"Today was the best we've played, offensively," said Boys' Latin coach Bob Shriver of the non-league, Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference win. "They have a terrific goalie, but we had a fair amount of shots."
Sophomore keeper Trey Sheain (14 saves) held Severn (6-3) to its lowest goals total this season, playing behind North Carolina-bound defender J.J. La Seta, Mitch Hendler, John Gallagher, J.R. Stahl, Evan Cameron and Matt Field.
Stahl and Hendler alternated on Drew Habeck and Mike Houser, who combined for eight goals and two assists in Monday's 16-3 rout of Severna Park, but had one assist each yesterday. La Seta marked Brandon Wright (one assist), who had two goals and two assists on Monday.
Severn was led by Mike Bailey (four goals) and Todd MacMullan (two). "With our offensive marks, we had to not get beat top-side and play help defense. Trey was a great anchor," La Seta said.
Sheain stopped six of eight shots in the third period as the Lakers led 7-4 entering the fourth period. Senior Dan Biser replaced Sheain with 1:39 to play.
No. 4 Gilman 10, No. 14 Friends 9, OT: Justin Redd's fourth goal was the game-winner with 2:41 left in the four-minute extra session, and Luke Wilson, who tied the game at 9, J.D. Nelson and Chris Deutschmann each scored twice for Gilman (4-3 overall, 4-0 in Division II). Will Sale (three goals, one assist) led Friends (5-5, 2-3), which blew leads of 4-0 and 9-4.
St. Paul's 5, No. 3 Calvert Hall 3: Left-hander Brian Perkins struck out 13 and gave up four hits as the Crusaders (8-7) edged the defending, MIAA A Conference champion Cardinals (7-2).
