After a rain-drenched Tuesday of action resulted in delays and a lot of changing on the fly, including moving games scheduled to be played on grass fields to the main stadium turf, the Maverik Showtime National Lacrosse Recruiting Spotlight caught a break from Mother Nature on Wednesday, and its evening all-star games were played under partly cloudy skies.
Here’s the rundown of the two all-star games.

UNC commit Bailey Laidman (Dover Sherborn, MA) scored two of his team’s last three goals as Team Cascade broke a 7-7 tie to pull out the win.
Christian Cropp (The Benjamin School, FL) also scored two goals for Team Cascade, which led 5-3 at the half.
Maryland-bound Drew Morris of New Canaan (CT) and Princeton-bound Ben Churchill of the Rivers School (MA) enjoyed outstanding games for Team Cascade.
Other goal scorers for Team Cascade were Sean Barry (Smithtown East, NY/Towson), Connor Morin (Morristown Beard, NJ/Villanova), Thomas Tenney (Fox Lane, NY), Ryan O’Connell (New Canaan, CT) and Brian Tevlin (Seton Hall Prep, NJ). Tevlin added two assists.
