SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit High School Boys Varsity Lacrosse Team’s performance against Manasquan at Investors Bank Field displayed a familiar, successful pattern: build a big lead relatively early, use ball possession and a suffocating defense to snuff out the opposition’s offense, and take advantage of the score line cushion to rotate players into the line-up, giving them valuable game action while limiting minutes for the regulars.
And so it went against the Warriors, as the Maroon & White built leads of 6-0 after one quarter, 8-0 at the half, and 10-0 into the third, on their way to a straightforward 12-3 victory. The win improves Summit’s season record to 8-0 ahead of an always-challenging home game against Chatham April 23.
The Hilltoppers blitz came early and often, with senior captain Evan Kulpan scoring twice in the opening five minutes of the game put Summit up 2-0. Two minutes later, Corey McManus found Chris Fowler and the lead was three at the 5:25 mark.
Jack Johnson -- set up by Fowler -- then Fowler assisted by Kulpan and, finally, McManus from senior captain Xavier McCormick tacked on the final three scores of the opening 12 minutes.
McManus’ second of the game made it 7-0 at 9:20 of the second quarter, and was followed by a Tucker Hall goal just over a minute later.
The break came with Summit up 8-0, rendering the second half devoid of any suspense, but providing a solid opportunity for Hilltoppers Head Coach Jim Davidson to substitute liberally.
Senior captain Andrew Chase struck twice in the third, while McCormick and Hall eah scored in the fourth to close out the home team’s scoring.

Senior captain Teddy Cranley was credited with nine saves in the Summit goal, while Will Vitton made two saves in relief. The Hilltoppers again earned healthy advantages in shots (34-20) and ground balls (33-12).
Summit's team defensive effort to date this season has now limited the opposition to 3.25 goals per game.
Jarrett Birch led Manasquan with two goals.
Summit’s April 23 game with Chatham at Investors Bank Field faces-off at 12 p.m.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

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 ...
