Summit Boys Lacrosse Scores Dozen Unanswered Goals in 12-1 Pounding of Mendham

Summit's Sean Andrews (41) and Andrew Helmer sandwich a Mendham player, dislodging the ball, in the Hilltoppers 12-1 victory over the Minutemen.

SUMMIT, NJ - While its exact attribution is up for debate, it is believed Colonel William Prescott said "don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes" to the Colonial Minutemen doing battle in the Revolutionary War.

When the Summit High School Boys Varsity Lacrose Team traveled to Mendham to face their group of Minutemen, they didn't follow Prescott's credo, nor did they hold their powder.  

The Hilltoppers unleashed shot after shot at target, with Corey McManus scoring five times, and Andrew Chase adding three more, as Summit notched a dozen unanswered goals en route to a 12-1 route of Mendham.

Summit was credited with 40-plus attempts on goal, with the Mendham goalies recording 19 saves in the game. Summit scored in the first minute of each quarter, and had more than 80 percent of the possession.

McManus opened the scoring at the 11:26 mark, and then Chase went to work, tallying a natural Hat Trick over a span of six minutes. McManus finished the first-quarter blitz when he scored with just four seconds left in the opening frame. Summit led 5-0, and their siege of the Minutemen goal was just getting warmed up.

Evan Kulpan's goal 31 seconds into the second quarter made it 6-0 and, after a Jay Winchell save and outlet pass, John Cordrey scored at the 8:50 mark to increase the advantage to seven.

Halftime provided a brief respite for Mendham, but Summit reloaded and poured four more goals in during the third quarter. McManus' third and fourth scores, coming inside the first two minutes of the period, made it 9-0. The first goal came with a flag down due to an impending penalty, while the second came on the subsequent man-up advantage.

Charlie Guttila then scored with just over six minutes remaining, followed by Cordrey's second of the day at 4:20 and the scoreboard read 11-0.

The cherry on the sundae was McManus' fifth goal of the game, coming just after Summit won the opening fourth quarter face-off, and at the end of a pretty tic-tac-toe passing play.

Next Game / Next Home Game: April 16 - Glen Rock, 4:45 p.m.
