Boys Lacrosse: Gov. Livingston Rolls to 11-2 Rout of Passaic Valley


BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ- The Gov. Livingston Highlanders tore up the field Monday afternoon as defeated Passaic Valley, 11-2, to improve to 4-2 on the season. Andrew Cahill scored six goals in another impressive performance for GL.

Matt Richel opened the scoring in the game when he carried the ball inbounds, circled the net, and spun off a defender to free himself for a clean shot that beat the goalie for a 1-0 GL lead. Cahill struck twice in the first, and Kyle Wahlers scored to put the Highlanders up 4-1 at the end of the 1st quarter.

The second quarter began with GL capitalizing on a two man advantage. Blaine Gyory potted a goal after Passaic Valley took two concurrent penalties. GL led 5-1 at half.

After a scoreless 3rd quarter, the Highlanders struck six times in the final period of play. Cahill scored four, Richel scored one, and Aidan Malave potted one in close in the final moments of the game.

Despite the win, GL head coach Patrick Crann believes his team can play better than they did. "We looked better in the last one, that's for sure," Crann said after the game. "We seemed to be doing a better job on ground balls. That's our focus right now. We did better on face offs, but we need to be better as a team."

Kyle Merz made seven saves in net. Wahlers had four assists alongside his goal, and Cahill's six goals increase his team leading total to 28 on the season.

The Highlanders next face Delaware Valley on the road on Thursday, April 19 at 6 p.m.
