The nationally ranked boys’ lacrosse teams from Towson’s Calvert Hall College High School and Loyola Blakefield took on each other – and a higher cause – April 20.
In a game that served as a fundraiser for cancer awareness, coach Bryan Kelly’s Cardinals posted a decisive 11-6 victory over the Dons at the victors’ Paul Russo Stadium. The outcome tightened a crowded race in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference.
Calvert Hall raced out to an 8-0 lead in the second quarter. Patrick Kelly led the defending A Conference champions, with four goals and two assists. Faceoff specialist Stephen Kelly, one of several of Kelly cousins on the Cardinals’ team, won 14 of 20 draws.
Calvert Hall improved to 11-2, 3-1 in the A Conference, while Loyola Blakefield dropped to 9-2, 3-1.
St. Mary’s, Annapolis, is among the other contenders in the A Conference. The conference championship game will be held May 18, at 8 p.m., at Towson University’s Johnny Unitas Stadium.
