SUMMIT, NJ - Like the weather outside, the Summit High School Boys Varsity Lacrosse Team is starting to really heat up. The more-than-warm temperature and sunny sky at Investors Bank Field reflected The Maroon and White's performance on the day, as the Hilltoppers jumped out to 5-0 first-quarter lead and went on to climb all over Glen Rock, 12-3.

Senior captain Corey McManus had four goals, and junior attack-mate Harry Kilkowski added a Hat Trick as the Hilltoppers improved to 4-1 on the season.

The first quarter sent the message to the visiting side that this was Summit’s game. Sophomore midfielder Greg Moller struck first four minutes into the contest with a stinging shot that rang off the top left post off a feed from senior attack Chris Fowler. He was followed by four more unanswered goals scored by McManus, two from Jack Johnson and one more by Eamon McTernan with 1:57 left.

Trailing 5-0 to start the second quarter, the Panthers fought back and responded with back-to-back goals to start the quarter. This spark would be put out very quickly as Kilkowski would score three goals in four minutes, one coming with 9 seconds in the half, giving Summit the 8-2 advantage heading to the break.

The third quarter would only add to the Hilltopper lead as McManus would bag two more, assists coming from Johnson and Kilkowski, and a stout defense -- from the brick wall of captain Finn McTernan, Patrick Tully and Stephen Sajer as well as Long Stick Midfielder, Jameson Waldron -- would secure a 10-2 lead heading into the final 12 minutes.

The final frame immediately began with a Jack Johnson goal coming at 11:38 followed by a fourth goal from McManus. The visitors would score a consolation goal that, at the end of the day, likely wasn't much of a consolation.

Despite dropping face-off battle (6-10), Summit won the shot metric (28-12) and scooped 13 ground balls. WIll Vitton and Patrick Moriarty had a solid combined effort in between the pipes, with Vitton making four saves and Moriarty taking two of his own.

This comfortable victory would mark the second such contest in-a-row for Summit, with some perhaps wondering how these games help the team. According to Summit Head Coach Jim Davidson, the answer is depth. ”Earlier in the season with all of the tough competition we had to slim down the lineup. In these games we have a chance to play a lot of guys and make our team deeper.”

Summit stays home to face Sparta at April 13. Face-off at Investors Bank Field is set for 4:30 p.m.

Kyle Standing is a Summit High School sophomore.
