Steve Bosse made a little bit of history last night while helping No. 13 Fallston to a surprisingly easy, 15-4 victory over host Bel Air in a Harford County game.

Bosse finished with three goals and four assists to go past the 200-point mark in his career as Fallston (11-0, 6-0) rolled past the Bobcats (9-2, 5-1).

The senior attackman, who now has 202 points (54 this spring), sparked a 14-goal run that brought the Cougars back from an early 2-0 deficit and turned the game into a rout by the middle of the third quarter.

"He is the quarterback for us," Fallston coach Matt Parks said. "When he came here, he was a great finisher. But he decided he needed to be a little bit [better] passer, so he worked on that."

Bosse, known for blistering shooting from anywhere in the attack zone, was moved behind the net after Fallston lost RewTodd to injuries from a car accident last winter.

"It is very difficult to [defend] him," Bel Air coach Scoop Kelly said. "If you play him real aggressively, he'll find the open man. If you sag back, he's got that real good outside shot."

Bosse scored three different ways last night. He faked out a defenseman with a quick move for a goal that gave the Cougars a 5-2 lead with 8:49 left in the first half. He scored twice during Fallston's seven-goal third period, once after stealing a ball in front of the Bel Air net, the other with a low shot from the wing.

"This year, I moved to be [the quarterback]; I faced many challenges playing lacrosse," Bosse said. "This was just another one."

The Cougars got a lot of help from a lot of places in this game. Bel Air tried to slow the game and held possession for the first four minutes, getting goals from Louie Boyle and Adam Cooper for a 2-0 lead.

But then Fallston got rolling, taking a 6-2 halftime lead and breaking things open with the seven-goal third period.

Ross Novak (three goals, two assists), Brandon Fisher (three goals, one assist), Ryan Smith (three goals), Ryan McNicholas (two goals) and Luke Raab (one goal, two assists) all pitched in.
