SUMMIT, NJ - Producing an important, quality performance on the cusp of the state playoffs, the Summit High School Boys Varsity Lacrosse Team leveraged a marked advantage in possession time to pile up a big shots-at-target edge which, combined with some timely finishing, added up to a convincing 7-1 road victory over Ridgewood.
Corey McManus had a Hat Trick, and Riley Flynn added a pair of goals for the Hilltoppers, who finished their regular season 13-4. Goalie Jay Winchell, made seven saves, and came within 33 seconds of earning his second shutout of the season.
Summit enjoyed 90 percent of possession in the opening quarter and built a 2-0 lead. McManus took a feed from Drew Mulholland and scored at the 8:22 mark, then added his second of the game -- on a pass from John Cordrey -- with just 13 seconds remaining in the first.
While not having as much of the ball in the second quarter, the Hilltoppers still had the high majority of it, and made it 3-0 at 9:23 when Chris Zanelli found Andrew Chase who scored. It was 4-0 heading into to halftime after Zanelli again turned provider, this time setting up Flynn with just less than a minute remaining in the second frame.
Ridgewood's inability to clear their own zone served to haunt them, as McManus, from Cordrey, and then Cordrey unassisted upped the margin to 6-0 in the third.
Flynn's second of the game made it 7-0 at 8:24 of the fourth quarter, and the only remaining suspense was whether Summit could pitch the shutout. The Maroons finally broke through in the final minute, but the disappointment of losing the whitewash could not overshadow the fact that this was a solid, commanding win, away from home, against a highly-ranked opponent.
The Hilltoppers, who received a number-one seed in their section, open NJSIAA Tournament play May 16 against 16th-seeded Paramus at Investors Bank Field. Face-off is set for 11 a.m.

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

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 ...
