BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Senior Brian Hutton recorded a hat trick in Thursday's 9-4 boys lacrosse victory over Verona at home. The win was the Highlanders' second victory, snapping a four game losing streak.

Senior Max Toglia got the offense going and was first to score with five other players [Noah Boldt, Doug Anderson, Matt Rothfeld, Jesse Giambra  and Jon Wong] adding a goal apiece, while goalie Peter Krasny recorded 12 saves in the win. Senior Connor Budka set the pace by winning 80-percent of the faceoff draws.

GL was anxious for some redemption and confidence and hungry for a win. Coach Chet Parlavecchio changed things up -- moving Hutton [their powerhouse attackman] to midfield and defender Boldt to attack.

"We are a work in progress and are improving -- we continue to get better and better and today was a good start," said Parlavecchio. 

"Doug Anderson had a great game with four take aways and seven ground balls," said Parlavecchio.  "Defensively, our man down was spectacular today."  The team held Verona to four goals behind the pressure of Alec Dougherty, Pat Maurer and Emmanuel Kanellos.

"We competed very hard today," said Parlavecchio and credits his entire team for playing a great game and staying tough.

The Highlanders travel to Jefferson Township on Monday, April 20 with a 4:30 p.m. start.

As you recall in the fable, the hare brags about his ability to beat the tortoise and is overly confident about winning. In the investment world, the hare is someone who thinks he or she is great at selecting “winners” and avoiding “losers.” The ...
