SUMMIT, NJ - Scoring at nearly a goal-a-minute clip in the opening quarter, the Summit High School Boys Varsity Lacrosse Team used a relentless offensive performance to overwhelm Minisink Valley, NY, 16-1 at Investors Bank Field.

As gusty winds threw a bit of chill into a sapphire-blue sky day, The Maroon and White systematically blew away the Warriors, taking a nine-goal lead after the opening 12 minutes, then rotating multiple squad members into the action in a cruise-control performance over the final 36.

Despite seeing limited action, senior captain Corey McManus had four goals, junior Harry Kilkowski had a Hat Trick, and seven other Hilltoppers found the back of the net.

Summit didn't allow much Minisink Valley possession, rode their opponents clear aggressively, and were suffocating when visitor's did get the chance to set up in the Hilltoppers' zone. A trio of Summit goalies -- Will Vitton (4), Patrick Moriarty (1), and Sam Kaplan (2) -- combined to make seven saves.

The Hilltoppers' first quarter blitz pounded the Warriors and settled the outcome.

McManus and Kilkowski scored 15 seconds apart less than two minutes in and Summit led 2-0. Jake Dolson grabbed a goal back from Minisink Valley, but then the home side opened the taps on the goal faucet big-time.

Scott Mauriello, Jackson Tyler (his first-ever Varsity goal), McManus' second, Tyler's second, Greg Moller, McManus's Hat Trick goal, Kilkowski's second and Jack Johnson -- with 20.2 seconds left -- all scored and it was 10-1 after one.

Sean Crotty, McManus' fourth, Kilkowski's third, and Griffin Breen added tallies in the second quarter, and the teams went to the break with Summit up 14-1.

With the substitutions in full flow and clearly intending not to run up the score, the Hilltoppers managed a running-clock second half with ease. They did pot two more goals, both from junior Tom Fischetti.

The full-game stats reflected the tilt of the competitive axis, with Summit claiming a sizable edge in shots (28-7), face-offs (13-6) and ground balls (24-6).

Summit stays at home to next face Glen Rock April 11. Face-off is set for 4:30 p.m.
