Summit Boys Lacrosse Thumps Pascack Valley 11-1, Reaches Sectional Semis; Hilltoppers Face Ramapo May 21

Senior captain John Cordrey had a Hat Trick in Summit's 11-1 defeat of Pascack Valley.
SUMMIT, NJ - Corey McManus scored five goals, and senior captain John Cordrey added a Hat Trick, as the Summit High School Boys Varsity Lacrosse team marched easily to the NJSIAA sectional semifinals with a 11-1 victory over Pascack Valley.
After yielding the game's opening goal, the Hilltoppers dominated face-offs, ground balls, possession time, and shots at target for the remainder of the game, scoring the final 11 goals of the contest.
Trailing 1-0, Summit put up four goals in just under three minutes, on scores from McManus, two from Cordrey, and Chris Zanelli. McManus' second -- coming with just 7.8 seconds left in the first quarter, made it 5-1 after the opening 12 minutes.
Top-seeded Summit, now 15-4 on the season, made it 6-1 when McManus completed his Hat Trick at the 9:58 mark of the second quarter. The eighth-seeded Indians, quixotically, had two spells of possession totaling seven-plus minutes cumulatively, but only attempted two shots at target despite trailing by five goals. Jay Winchell had two saves in the period.
While Summit was in control at the half, given their dominance in possession time, the margin should have been greater. The Hilltoppers offensive finishing wasn't razor sharp, which it will likely need to be as the competition progresses and the opposition gets much tougher.
The third quarter saw another Hilltopper blitz featuring four goals in just under five minutes. Cordrey's Hat Trick goal, a tally from Andrew Chase, and two more for McManus made it 10-1. Chase tacked on the lone goal in the final quarter for his second of the game to round out the scoring.
Malcolm Feeney enjoyed another sterling performance at "the X," especially in the first quarter -- when he was six-for-six -- and Summit forced numerous turnovers riding the Indians defensive zone clearance attempts.

"We had great looks throughout the game, but we didn't finish our chances," said Summit Head Coach Jim Davidson. "I thought we came out strong in the second half, and had a good third quarter."  
Knowing the level of competition is about to rise significantly, Davidson knows Summit will have at be at their best for a full 48 minutes. "The challenge moving forward is you can't just turn it on and off."
The Hilltoppers face a quick turnaround, advancing to play fourth-seeded Ramapo -- a 9-8 winner over fifth-seeded West Essex -- May 21 at Investors Bank Field. Face-off is set for 4 p.m.

Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
