Matt Ward had four goals and an assist, Jake Byrne had three goals and two assists and Peter Lamade three assists as visiting Landon won its 31st consecutive game - its 17th straight over Georgetown Prep - 8-5, before 4,500 fans.

Recognized nationally as Maryland's top two teams, Landon (14-0) is ranked No. 1 in the nation by Inside Lacrosse and Georgetown Prep (14-1) is No. 3 behind New York's Northport.

Down 2-0 after one period and 4-3 at halftime, Landon scored five straight times, going up 5-4, on Austin Bordley's third-period goal. Although slowed by an injured right ankle, Ward said: "The adrenaline was like 15 Novocain shots."

David Wright (12 saves) played well for the Little Hoyas, whose top offensive threats, Chris Lehman, James Hyland and Trever Casey, were scoreless against defenders Chris Ourisman, Tony Vita, David Evans and keeper Jeff Weiker (13 saves).
