Mostly quiet in the first half yesterday against No. 4 Boys' Latin, the No. 2 Calvert Hall boys lacrosse team found its mark on offense in the third quarter. In the fourth, the host Cardinals slammed the door.

Senior attackman Patrick Fanshaw scored four goals - the last two early in the pivotal fourth, as the Cardinals shook off the Lakers, 12-8, in Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference play. Calvert Hall (5-1) improves to 2-0 in the league, handing Boys' Latin (7-1, 1-1) its first loss of the season.

Tied at 4 at the half and then trailing 6-4 early in the third quarter, the Cardinals scored five of the next six to take a 9-7 lead on a goal from senior attackman Jason McFadden (three goals, one assist) with just less than five minutes left in the third. After the Lakers cut the lead to 9-8 on Jack Rice's fourth goal with 47 seconds left in the quarter, the Cardinals kept the visitors scoreless in the fourth.

Fanshaw finished a transition goal off a feed from Patrick Coyle with 6:39 left to give the Cardinals a 10-8 lead.

"Any time you can beat a team as talented as they are, you have to be excited," Calvert Hall coach Bryan Kelly said.

The Lakers got a strong performance in goal from junior Patrick Jennings, who finished with 11 saves.

No. 7 LOYOLA 10, No. 5 ST. PAUL'S 8:: The Dons (5-2) used a 4-0 third period to turn a one-goal deficit into a three-goal lead in their win over the visiting Crusaders. Trevor Dauses had three goals for Loyola, and Bobby Distler and Mike Reid added two each.


HARFORD TECH 10, NO. 13 DIGITAL HARBOR 0:: Ryan Newkam pitched five innings of shutout ball, striking out eight, as the Cobras (3-2) blanked the visiting Rams (3-3). Kenny West was 2-for-3 with two doubles to lead Harford Tech.


No. 12 C. MILTON WRIGHT 1, No. 7 FALLSTON 0:: Brittany Walker pitched eight scoreless innings, striking out eight, and a bunt by Nicole Berardi in the bottom of the eighth scored the only run as the visiting Mustangs (5-2) handed the Cougars (4-1) their first loss of the season. Val Strawbridge struck out 17 for Fallston in the loss.
