RANDOLPH, NJ- Randolph lacrosse star Jake Southren reached a major milestone, recording his 100 career point in a 12-9 victory over Lenapee valley.

“It's a great accomplishment, my brother hit it last year as a senior, so it's a pretty good feeling for me to now be a part of that club." Southren said after the game.

What could be considered an even greater accomplishment is the fact that Southren has done it  as a junior, in only a season and a half of varsity lacrosse

Randolph coach John Naslonski spoke about Southren, stating, “Jake Southren is tearing it up for us, the kid is just a phenomenal player.  He has had a lot of success, and he's only a junior so we have him for another year."

When the game began Southren seemed determined to hit the milestone and get it out of the way.  Southren had an assist on the first goal to Luc Swedlund, and scored the second himself unassisted.

With the Rams trailing 6-4 just before half, Southren hit the 100 point mark when he scored a goal from the left side.

Southren described the play, "Zack Schuster threw the ball down to me, I swept up top and he said a pick for me.  I rolled off his pick, swept to the middle and shot the ball low."

In the second half, Swedeland, who is a rising star as a sophomore, and Southren were both instrumental in pushing the Rams to the lead.  After scoring the first goal of the game for the Rams, Swedlund picked up three goals and an assist in the second half.  Southren added three assists in the second half to finish the game with two goals and four assists for six total points.

The Rams have made a habit of making games interesting this season, and this one was no different.  After Randolph took control at 11-7, Lenape fought back to 11-9 in the closing minutes, and even had a power play to try and cut the lead to one.

Solid defense by Austin Hennig, Nolan Sappio, and Wyatt Todd (Todd led the Rams with 8 ground balls) killed the penalty and ended the threat.  Swedlund then added the final tally with under a minute for the final margin of 12-9

Brian Gleeson and Jesse Bush had solid efforts to help the Rams possession game.  Bush went 15-6 on faceoffs, and Gleeson controlled the middle of the field with 6 ground balls and cleared the ball up field for the Rams on numerous occasions.

Coach Naslonski said of Gleeson, “Brian is a junior captain, the kid hustles up and down the field every game.  Every play he leaves it out there, I couldn’t ask for more.”

The Rams scoring was rounded out by two second-half goals from Matt Potter, two goals from Max Pinelis, and a goal apiece from Bush and Schuster.
