Start With A Bang
Maryland’s Public schools got started last week and quite a few teams opened with a bang. Six teams scored at least 15 goals in their season opener, including a Chesapeake (Md.) squad that opened with 20.
Mike Harmeyer tied the Severna Park (Md.) program record for most goals in a game with 10 in an 18-0 win over Northeast (Md.), according to the Capital Gazette. Harmeyer tied former Falcon and current UMBC player Trevor Patschorke.
Danny McMinn from Briar Woods (Va.) became the program’s all-time leading scorer on Saturday. The senior entered the year with 211 points on 135 assists and 76 goals. The previous program record was 234 points which was held by Cole Pearsall (Class of 2017). McMinn scored three assists and a goal in the win over Loudoun Valley (Va.) to get the record Friday night.
On the year, he has 23 points in four games, which has moved him into the Top 25 all-time in Virginia. McMinn has 10 regular-season games left, plus potential playoff games to increase his total and climb the record book.
Gonzaga (D.C.) got the best of the IAC this season with wins over Georgetown Prep (Md.) and Landon (Md.) last week. The Purple Eagles defeated the Hoyas 10-9 in overbite on March 15 and followed up with a 10-8 win over Landon on March 20. They still have an inter-conference game against defending IAC champion Bullis (Md.) on April 1. Gonzaga is the defending Washington Catholic Athletic Conference champion.
Cody Unman ended a double-overtime contest between Manchester Valley (Md.) and Catonsville (Md.) with the game-winning goal. Unman helped Manchester Valley to the 10-9 victory after his team trailed 8-5 after three quarters.
A couple more meetings between MIAA and Inter-Ac teams last week gave the MIAA a 4-3 lead for the 2019 season.
Episcopal Academy (Pa.) went 1-1 last week with a win over St. Mary’s (Md.) and a loss to Gilman (Md.). Jack Henderson won 15-of-17 face-offs for EA in the win over St. Mary’s. Sam King scored two goals and two assists for Gilman in the victory.
You Can Make a Difference
When I founded LaxRecords.com, I could have made it into a for-profit company, but I wanted to create something different - there's plenty of recruiting coverage available. I've worked hard over the last four years to keep all content free and open to everyone. My promise to you is that I will never charge for access to the content on LaxRecords.com.
I believe LaxRecords.com is something special. It is like a library or Wikipedia. A place to discover the history of lacrosse. To my knowledge, I am the only person doing this work in lacrosse.
If everyone reading this donated, my fundraiser work would be done within an hour. But not everyone can or will donate. And that's fine.
This year, please consider making a donation of $5, $20, $50 or whatever you can to protect and sustain LaxRecords.com. Can't afford that amount? How about $2 per month? I created a way to make a monthly, recurring donation. If you donate $2 per month, that's $24 per year. Added up over many of you, that makes a huge difference and helps continue improvements.
