Morristown, NJ - In its March 2007 issue, Inside Lacrosse Magazine highlighted the April 25, 2007 Mountain Lakes @ Delbarton Boys High School Lacrosse match as one of its Games of the Year between big rivalries. These two teams meet up to three times each year. Once in the regular season and often times in the Morris County Championships and again at the State Finals held at Rutgers University.
In their first meeting of the year, the Green Wave, which is ranked number four in the nation, walked away with early bragging rights by outscoring the Lakers 7 – 1 in this game held under wet and rainy conditions on Delbarton’s home field in Morristown, NJ and attended by close to 800 screaming fans of both teams.
The Delbarton crowd was the first to celebrate as Matt Doherty scored an unassisted goal with 10:47 remaining in the first period. That was the last goal for the period as neither side was able to get past the opposite team’s defenders nor goaltender despite 8 shots on goal by Delbarton and 6 by Mountain Lakes.
Delbarton started strong and finished strong in the second period with Patrick Coleman scoring unassisted with 10:27 remaining. Mountain Lakes had plenty of opportunities to even the score during the period, outshooting the Green Wave 11 to six. Despite all those opportunities in the period, the Lakers were not able to get the ball past the Green Wave’s Goaltender Adam Tourgee. Then with only 1:09 remaining in the half Delbarton’s T.J. O’Donnell with a little help from Jack McBride found the net, bringing the score to 3-0 in favor of Delbarton.
Mountain Lakes was down, but not out. In fact, the Lakers came back in the third period with 8:37 remaining with an unassisted goal by Brent Siebold erasing the possibility of a shutout. That was to be the last point of the day, however, for the Lakers. In fact, it had less than half as many chances to score in the third when the Lakers were limited to taking only five shots on goal compared to the 11 it took during the second period. Delbarton took eight shots on goal and one of those by Max Seligman with some help from Cam Seligman found the net with 6:42 remaining in the third period
Mountain Lakes had even fewer chances to place one in the net during the final period where Delbarton limited the Lakers to only three shots on goal, while the Green Wave took 10 shots converting three of those into goals by Chris McBride, Kyle O’Keefe and Matt Campbell with 7:02, 5:10 and 4:23 remaining, respectively.
