BOONSBORO — The boys lacrosse game between Boonsboro and North Hagerstown on Thursday was suspended by lightning with 4:50 left in the fourth period and North leading, 11-5.

According to Warriors coach Phil Aversa, the game will be finished on a date yet to be determined.

“We’ll try to make it up here towards the end of the week,” Aversa said. “I love that our kids have that ‘never say die’ attitude and were unanimous in their decision to play this game out.

“The best thing about lacrosse is that anything can happen very quickly. A few faceoffs turned into goals could get us back in it.”

With the Warriors up 3-2 in the second period, the Hubs struck with four straight goals to take a 6-3 advantage. Drew Brooks scored twice in the period for North, while Jason Moody and Peter Perini each added a goal.

The Hubs kept the barrage going in the third period with three more scores. Brandon Brown scored two goals and Alex Unger also scored.

“Basically their 1-on-1 moves beat our 1-on-1 defense,” said Aversa. “We didn’t adjust in time.”

Unger and Kyle Hewlett scored in the fourth period for North.

The Warriors drew first blood in the first quarter with goals by Justin Jardeleza and Reiker Bowles, but Brown and Hewlett tied the game for the Hubs.

Justin Jardeleza scored twice for Boonsboro, while Rex Le Gore and Fred Funke each added a goal.

Hubs goalie Brian Davis saved 13 shots. Alex Pizzaro saved 11 for the Warriors.
