Boys Lacrosse: Hubs done in by own penalties

March 28, 2013|By WILL ROBINSON | will.robinson@herald-mail.com

HAGERSTOWN — Though North Hagerstown’s boys lacrosse team fought until the final horn on Thursday, the Hubs couldn’t withstand Middletown’s powerful attack, falling to the Knights 13-6 at Mike Callas Stadium.

Middletown (3-0) was led by Cody Martin, who scored six goals. Martin broke a 1-1 tie with 46 seconds left in the first quarter. Patrick Regan scored 32 seconds later, and from there, the Knights didn’t let up.

Middletown continued to pour on the offense in the second quarter, taking an 8-3 lead at halftime thanks in large part to Hubs penalties.

A three-minute, non-releaseable penalty by North (1-1) for an illegal stick led to three man-up goals by the Knights — two by Martin and one by Frankie Meighan. Meighan scored his first goal earlier in the second quarter, also on a man-up opportunity.

“The bad thing about tonight was that three-minute non-releasable penalty in which we gave up three goals,” said North coach Hammond Urner. “We also gave up two goals on man-down situations. Take those away and it’s a different game.”

The Hubs continued to battle in the second half.

Brandon Brown scored his second of four goals in the third quarter on an assist by Tyler Brown. Brandon Brown added his final two tallies in the fourth quarter, one assisted by Kyle Hewlett and the other unassisted. Hewlett and Drew Brooks also scored for North.

“I feel good about tonight’s game, considering we haven’t scored a goal on Middletown in two or three years,” said Urner. “We’re a thin squad right now. We had two injuries that kept middies out. It’s hard to compete with a team with 30 players, all of whom are really good.”

Ryan Crompton scored two goals for Middletown, while Garrett Murphy and Nick Welch each scored one. Regan had two assists and Meighan added one.

JV: Middletown, 15-3.
