April 25, 2013|By JACK HILL III | jack.hill@herald-mail.com

BOONSBORO — It all came down to the fourth quarter.

Knotted at 6-6 through three periods, South Hagerstown outscored Boonsboro 4-3 in the fourth quarter to squeeze out a 10-9 victory on Thursday night in an MVAL Antietam boys lacrosse game.

South Hagerstown snapped a six-game losing streak and improved its record to 3-6 (2-1 MVAL Antietam), while Boonsboro fell to 1-8, 0-3.

“Staying in the game on every play was the key to the victory,” South Hagerstown coach Dave Tallant said. “Possession of the ball on offense and being patient helped us to get the win tonight. We knew that they were a fast-moving team. That is a team that plays with tenacity. We knew that we had to play the same way. Our extra man unit was on target tonight. Our defense adjusted well tonight.”

The Rebels built a 9-6 advantage during the fourth quarter with goals by Josiah Johnson, Noah Wright and Jordan Foster.

The Warriors chopped the Rebels’ lead down to 9-8 with goals by Justin Jardeleza and Reiker Bowles.

The Rebels extended their lead to 10-8 on a goal by Cole Barnhart.

The Warriors reduced the deficit to 10-9 with 1:06 remaining in the game on a goal by Ben Harrah, but couldn’t convert several scoring opportunities in the final 30 seconds as South goalie Garry Robinson made three clutch saves.

“It was a hard-fought game,” Boonsboro coach Brett Briggs said. “I am really proud of my boys. They really fought hard until the end. It was definitely a game that could have went either way. We had three shots in the final 30 seconds. South’s goalie made three saves. He played a phenomenal game at the net.”

Foster and Barnhart scored three goals each for the Rebels.

Bowles had three goals for the Warriors.
