RFH Falls Just Short in Upset Bid over National Powerhouse IMG Academy

Game in and game out this season, Rumson-Fair Haven has established itself as one of the best pound-for-pound lacrosse teams in the state. Head coach Mark Moreau doesn’t shy away from a challenge, but it was the Bulldogs who turned up the heat this time around on a national powerhouse.

IMG Academy, a Top-20 nationally ranked team by InsideLacrosse, staved off an impressive upset attempt from the Bulldogs and captured a 7-6 win in overtime at Rutgers University.

RFH (8-3) played crisp, smart lacrosse through this game and held a 6-4 lead on IMG Academy (12-3) going into the fourth quarter. IMG scored a pair of goals in a two minute span and forced overtime before hitting the eventual game-winner in the final 10 seconds of the first OT period.

Yale commit Cole Cashion was stellar in the loss – his three goals were a game-high. Johnny Maccarone and Elijah Stobaugh each had two goal performances for IMG in the win.
