No. 1 Gilman thwarts St. Mary's

Lacrosse

May 03, 2008

The No. 4 St. Mary's boys lacrosse team seemed to have the perfect plan to upset No. 1 Gilman.

In the first 2 1/2 quarters, it dominated possession, scooped more ground balls and kept one of the best players in the area, midfielder Jack Doyle, in relative check, surrendering one assist to the Harvard-bound junior in the first 29 minutes of the game.

But slowing down Doyle is far from enough to beat the Greyhounds, and the team showed it. Davey Emala scored five goals (all of them in the second half) and host Gilman scored nine of the last 11 goals to hold off the Saints, 12-10. The win keeps Gilman (16-0 overall, 9-0 league) undefeated overall and in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference. St. Mary's fell to 13-4, 4-4.

"St. Mary's came out and really came after us, and they put us on our heels," Gilman coach Brooks Matthews said. "In the second half, we didn't hang our heads. We didn't worry, didn't get upset, and they showed a lot of poise and made some plays that we didn't make in the first half."

Down 8-3 midway through the third quarter, the Greyhounds started scoring with ease. Marcus Holman (two goals, one assist) scored unassisted with six minutes left to spark the run.
