On-Two Punch: Big Season-Opening Days from Kilkowski, Thomson Help Summit H.S, Boys Lacrosse Knock Out Old Bridge, 14-1

Summit's Eamon McTernan rips a left-handed shot in the Hilltoppers' 14-1 demolition of Old Bridge.

MATAWAN, NJ - Senior attack Harry Kilkowski and Nick Thomson provided the fireworks, and the Summit High School Boys Varsity Lacrosse team launched itself out of the 2018 season's gates with a dominating 14-1 win at Old Bridge.

Senior captain Kilkowski had four goals and six points on the day, while Thomson had a Hat Trick and eight -- yes, eight -- points including five assists. In sum, seven Hilltoppers found the back of the net as the Maroon and White built leads of 6-0 after one quarter and 11-0 at the half.

Goalies Will Vitton and Julian Rupkey split time, with each making two saves. By contrast, and despite allowing 14 goals, Old Bridge's Andrew Cherry had 19 stops.

Other Hilltopper highlights on the season's first day included:

  • A 'Fischetti Family Hat Trick', with two goals coming from senior Tom Fischetti and one goal -- his first-ever Varsity tally -- from his sophomore brother John Fischetti.
  • One goal, two assist games out of the midfield from senior Eamon McTernan and junior Gray Humphrey.
  • A three-point day -- and first-ever Summit High School and Varsity goal -- from freshman attack Luke Dinola.

Summit (1-0) returns to the 07901 for its home opener March 31 against West Essex. Face-off is set for 10 a.m. at Investors Bank Field.

Cluelessly Clueless

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 ...
