It was the first stacked Saturday of the young high school season as New Jersey and Connecticut teams joined New York by playing their first weekend games.
Our featured game is Ward Melville’s dramatic 9-8 win at Chaminade in a Long Island showdown of national powers.
Colgate-bound faceoff specialist Brendon Luu, who has been sidelined this season with an injury, came off the bench to take the final, crucial draw in the final seconds. Luu won the draw and fed midfielder Will Renz whose shot with one second to go was stopped by Ward Melville goalie DJ Kellerman to preserve the win.
The game was tied 3-3 after one quarter, 5-5 at halftime and 7-7 after three quarters.
Andrew Lockhart’s goal in the fourth quarter gave WM an 8-7 lead. Connor Grippe then made it a two-goal advantage with two minutes remaining. Grippe, Lockhart and Chris Grillo each had two goals. Dom Pryor had one goal and two assists for the Patriots. Kellerman finished with 10 saves.
Liam Connors, Joe Carney and Thomas Martello each had two goals for Chaminade. Alex Alacqua had two assists. Jack Zullo made eight saves.
