Against a McDonogh team motivated to earn its first conference win of the season, Kelly came up huge. Calvert Hall had an 8-4 lead at halftime, but McDonogh closed that lead to 8-6 late in the third quarter. Then, Kelly struck for three-straight goals to post the lead back to five, 11-6.
“Daniel had been playing very well, but unfortunately in the Hill [Academy] game he took a blow to his leg and consequently missed three games and two weeks of practice. In the Boys’ Latin (Md.) game he was able to play but not at 100 percent. However, his leadership has been outstanding throughout this process,” Calvert Hall head coach Bryan Kelly said. “Last night Daniel finally felt 100 percent and as you can see it made a difference for us. His three goals in the third played a significant role at a key moment in the game when McDonogh was making a run. It helped us gain the momentum back which was what we needed.”
Kelly started the week with three goals and an assist on the road against John Carroll (Md.). The senior followed that up with a four goal, one assist game against McDonogh (Md.).
“I didn’t really do much – I had three dunks and a lot of credit goes to Jack Sawyer, Grant Mitchell and Truitt Sunderland – those guys find me a lot on the back pipe a lot and I just got to put it away,” Kelly told the Baltimore Sun.

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.
