April 15, 2003|by JACK HILL III

The North Hagerstown Hubs swept the South Hagerstown Rebels in a Washington County high school lacrosse doubleheader at School Stadium on Monday night.

North pulled out an 8-7 victory in the boys game and then got a 17-5 win in the girls game.

During the boys game, Matt Stowell scored four goals and Charlie Hamilton collected three goals for the Hubs (1-3).

But it was Drew Harmon that got the decisive score for North with 1:57 remaining, as he snapped a 7-7 tie by scoring on an unassisted goal with a quick shot through a crowd of players.

"I was glad to see Drew Harmon get that game-winning goal after all of that hard work that he did to set up Stowell and Hamilton," North coach David Parker said. "Harmon's solid play drew the defense towards him and that enabled Stowell and Hamilton to be open for the goals. For two young teams, I thought that they gave the crowd their money's worth tonight."


North goalkeeper Kevin Motz made 10 saves.

Mike Moyseenko and Antoine Cooper led South (0-2) with two goals each.

"I became the coach just three days before the opening game," South coach Andrew Crouse said. "Our players are trying to find their place as much as we are trying to find where their strengths lie."

During the girls game, North (3-2) quickly built a commanding 11-0 halftime lead over South (0-2) to take charge.

"I tell my players 'Let's get up early and pound the goalie fast,'" North coach John Chirgott said. "We try to win the draw and try to go down and score right off the draw."

Kelly Salvagno scored four goals and Keri Snyder added three goals for North.

North only outscored South 6-5 during the second half after the Rebels put freshman Lacey Reichert in at goalkeeper.

"We played the second half the way that we should have played the whole game," South coach Bruce Buhrman said. "We'll get there; it's just going to take some time."
