McLean High Boys Lacrosse

The Highlander lacrosse team stumbled slightly this week, losing on the road to Langley 15-6 on Tuesday night. The loss dropped their season record to 5-2-1. The Highlanders were paced by junior attackman Brad Mason’s two goals, but the team as a whole could not muster the offense to match the incredible offensive output of Langley. Regardless, the team is looking to regroup with an away game against W.T. Woodson tonight at 7:15.

 

George C. Marshall High Boys Soccer

The Marshall Boys Soccer team experienced an up-and-down week over the past seven days, winning a game and losing a game to move their overall record to 4-2-1.

Last Thursday, the boys faced Stone Bridge away, where they were unable to muster much offense and lost 3-0. The cold, rainy weather played a factor, as the field was coated in sleet before the game began.

On Monday night, the boys turned the tide thanks to a reinvigorated offense, scoring four goals on their way to a 4-2 victory over Woodson on the road. The first half of the game featured tenacious defense, as neither team had scored a goal by halftime. However, the beginning of the second half played out much like their game on Thursday against Stone Bridge, with the Statesmen unable to put the ball in the goal while their opponent methodically established a lead.

Marshall senior defender Jorge Romero turned the game around, scoring a goal in the 30th minute of the second half. Senior midfielder Brendan Stringer tied the game with three minutes left to play, and the boys headed to overtime. After two quick goals from sophomore midfielder Ajay Amin and freshman striker Dylan Goodale, the boys were well on their way to putting the game in the win column.

The Marshall boys next face Langley High School at home at 7:15 p.m. on Friday night.
