Coming off of a one-goal loss to Thomas Johnson on Tuesday, Smithsburg's boys lacrosse team bounced back with a 10-4 MVAL Antietam victory over South Hagerstown on Thursday. However, the Leopards' play was eerily similar. Though Josiah Johnson drew first blood for South in the first quarter, Smithsburg (3-3, 2-0) scored all 10 of its goals in the first half, putting the Leopards on course for a comfortable win. Garrett Ghafir tied the game at 1 with 8:09 left in the first quarter on an assist by Josh Thomas, followed by Ryan Milligan's goal 3 1/2 minutes later to give the Leopards the lead for good.
