SUMMIT, NJ - Dominating in face-offs and possession, the the Summit High School Boys Varsity Lacrosse team scored early and often to defeat Mahwah 11-3.
Senior FOGO Brian Hadley had a stellar afternoon at "the X", winning 16 out of 18 face-offs, and Matt Fischetti scored his second-consecutive Hat Trick in as many games to lead the Summit offense.
The game was but a minute old when Chris Zanelli scored, however Mahwah answered one minute later. Summit then scored three consecutive goals to take a 4-1 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Fischetti, and a brace by John Cordrey, his second of the game assisted by Zanelli, sent the Hilltoppers -- now 10-1 on the season -- on their way. Fischetti's second of the game, assisted by James Strabley, gave Summit a 5-1 lead at the half.
Four minutes into the third quarter, Strabley was on the receiving end of a Kyle Waldron feed and it was 6-1. A Mahwah goal briefly interrupted the Hilltopper scoring run, but Summit put the hammer down to score the next five goals.
Fischetti's Hat Trick goal was unassisted, followed by Strabley's second of the game off a pass from Andrew Chase. Riley Flynn, Zanelli from Strabley, and Lax Graeb each scored, and it was 11-2.
Summit Head Coach Jim Davidson substituted freely throughout the latter stages of the second half, event bringing on Jay Winchell in goal for Sam Bebout, who made six saves on the afternoon.
Summit returns home to face Mendham, April 26, at 11 a,m., before facing Seton Hall Prep. April 30, also at Investors Bank Field.
