In Region Semifinals, SPHS Boys Lacrosse Rolls Past Crofton, 17-3


The only thing that was able to slow down the Severna Park Falcons offense versus Crofton on Friday night was Mother Nature as a lightning delay stopped play midway through the second quarter. The Falcons came back out from the delay and closed out a 17-3 win to advance to the regional championships.

After Crofton scored the first goal of the game, the Falcons scored 11 straight goals before the delay came just before halftime. Five of those goals were either scored or assisted by Falcons midfielder Parker Sealey while senior attacker Joaquin Villagomez had four goals in the game to lead all scorers. With the clock continually running throughout the second half, the Falcons were able to give some playing time to their bench players, and freshman callup Timmy Sullivan made the most of that opportunity by scoring a goal.

Head coach Dave Earl was glad to give those players some chances late in the game. “It’s great for the team,” Earl said. “Those guys work as hard as anybody else. I’m just so proud of them when we get an opportunity to get them in. It’s a pretty cool thing.”

The Falcons regional championship game is at home, Monday at 7:00pm. They will play Arundel for the chance to advance to the state tournament.
