St. Anthony’s (NY) 17 Delbarton 7 | Boys

One of the nation’s elite teams made the trek down to Jersey and reaffirmed why they are the real deal. St. Anthony’s (NY) improved to 6-0 on the season with a dominant showing against Delbarton. Ranked No. 3 nationally by a number of lacrosse outlets, the Friars controlled the pace from start to finish. The Green Wave’s top players found the back of the net.

Bergen Catholic 14 Wall 12 | Boys

Joey Marinaccio scored back to back goals in the fourth and Richie Reid’s blast proved to be the game winner as Bergen Catholic scores four straight in the fouth quarter to score a top-10 upset win on the road.  The Crimson Knights built a 10-8 lead late in the third before BC began its comeback.  Trailing 11-10, the Crusaders four straight proved to be the difference in this great matchup.
