SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit boys' lacrosse team continues to bulldoze through the competition in Group 1.

The Hilltoppers held a 9-2 lead after the first half against Mahwah on Thursday en route to a 15-6 victory over the T-Birds in the Group 1 quarterfinal contest.

The top-seeded Summit squad takes on fourth-seeded Rumson on Saturday in the semi-finals in Summit at Investors Bank Field.

For the Hilltoppers it was most goals they have given up in the Group stage the past two seasons, but still have outscored their opponents, 45-7.

The six goals given up might not have been a drop in the Summit defense, but because of the upstart Mahwah program.

Senior attacker Nick Kilkowski led the way offensively for the Hilltoppers with eight goals while junior Austin Carbone added five goals and five assists. Kilkowski is one of the top goal scorers in the state with 76. "Yeah definitely its hit me," said Kilkowski about this and the other seniors last run in the state tournament. "I think it has been a good three years and we want to finish strong."

For Kilkowski and the rest of Summit, they are not going to stop and want to this time win the State Tournament of Champions. Last season the lone loss for the Hilltoppers was 6-5 to Bridgewater-Raritan in the STOC final.

For 2012 the victory over Mahwah raised the Hilltoppers record to 18-1 with the lone loss coming to Ridgewood a couple of weeks ago. "I'd rather lose a game then," said Kilkowski about getting the loss out of the way in the regular season. "It was sort of a wake-up call."

Against Mahwah any time that the T-Birds would score a goal or two, Summit would just match it and then some.

"All year that has been the theme of the team," said Kilkowski. "We don't get our heads down and nobody got down on anybody."

For instance in the first period, Mahwah would score their first goals of the game with 30 seconds remaining to cut the Hilltoppers lead to 4-1.

But the potent Summit offense would come flying down the field as Kilkowski and Carbone would score back-to-back goals in an eight second period to raise the Hilltoppers lead to 6-1.

And then in the fourth quarter, Mahwah scored back-to-back goals and cut the Hilltoppers lead to 13-5 with 835 remaining in the game.

But in the next two minutes Carbone and Kilkowski would add their fifth and eighth goals of the games in a two-minute period.

Along with Kilkowski and Carbone, Summit received a goal each from Tommy Celmer and Michael Badgley.

In addition, Thomas Lackaye was instrumental in setting up the scoring plays by winning 15 of 17 face-offs for the Hilltoppers. Summit keeper Alex Salazar made nine saves in goal.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
