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.
