Patrick Foster scored two of his game-high four goals in the final 3:25 as the host and No. 4 Boys' Latin lacrosse team upset No. 1 Gilman, 13-12, on Friday.

The Greyhounds (10-1) have lost just one game out of 25 over the past two seasons.

The Lakers (11-2) fell behind 5-2 in the first quarter before going on an 8-1 run to take a 10-6 lead at the half.

Boys' Latin led for most of the second half and took an 11-9 edge into the final quarter. Gilman scored twice to tie the game before Foster scored at the 3:25 and 2:55 marks to preserve the win.

"Gilman dominated play in the second half, but we hung in there and withstood the pressure," Boys' Latin coach Bob Shriver said.

Alex McBride and Marcus Holman, seniors bound for North Carolina, each had a hat trick for Gilman.

No. 2 Calvert Hall 14, No. 8 Archbishop Spalding 10: Patrick Fanshaw had seven goals and two assists and Jason McFadden produced four goals and four assists to lead the visiting Cardinals (9-1, 6-0 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference) to a win.

Calvert Hall is alone in first place after Gilman's loss. Spalding (7-6, 2-4) is trying to secure the sixth and final playoff spot.

After Fanshaw and Spalding's Pat Harrison (three goals) traded scores to open the game, the Cardinals scored the next seven and led 9-2 at the half. McFadden assisted Fanshaw on his third goal with 10:09 left in the second quarter. Fanshaw returned the favor by recording an assist on McFadden's second and third goals of the opening half.

Spalding tried to mount a comeback, outscoring Calvert Hall 8-5 in the second half. The Cavaliers scored three unanswered goals in the final 2:15.

"I think Spalding outplayed us in the second half," Calvert Hall coach Bryan Kelly said. "They outhustled us and took advantage of our mistakes. That's what good teams do. I'm happy we won. It was a good victory."
