St. Georges boys lacrosse team beat Conrad 15-1 Tuesday afternoon.
The St. Georges boys’ lacrosse team sloshed their way to an easy 15-1 victory over Conrad School of Sciences Tuesday afternoon with the game being played in a constant rainstorm. Fortunately, the game was played on the Hawks’ FieldTurf, an artificial surface that allows for decent footing even in inclement weather. The last five minutes was played in a very heavy down pour.
Senior Tyler Kowalski had a big day, scoring five goals for the Hawks. Junior Evan Kobosko and junior Daniel Beres each had three goals for the offensive-minded Hawks.
St. Georges took early control of the contest, on the scoreboard and in field position.
Four different Hawks, Adam Carpenter-Clark, Beres, Patrick King and Kobosko all tallied to give St. Georges a 4-0 lead.
In the second quarter, the Hawks defense kicked into high gear, adding four more goals before Conrad could score, then added two more goals for good measure.
Hawks’ Kowalski scored at the 10:28 mark of the second period, then scored two more goals near the end of the half, at 35 seconds and again at 15 seconds, to give St. Georges a 10-1 lead heading into halftime.
The third period was much more defensive-minded by both teams, with the only goal coming off the stick of Carpenter-Clark at the 1:24 mark.
The Hawks added four more goals in the final period, with two coming from Kobosko.
While the St. George’s offense had a field day, the Hawks defense played very well in stretches, limiting the number of shots, and second chances taken by Conrad.
St. Georges, now 6-3, hosts Christiana on Thursday at 3:45 p.m., and they will host Smyrna on Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. The time was changed to allow the players to participate in SAT testing.
The 4-7 Redskins have lost three games in a row. The team plays Wilmington Christian on Thursday, with the game beginning at 4 p.m.
