KCHS lacrosse already has matched last year’s win total

WORTON — It was twos across the board, or it seemed like that, as seven Trojans each scored a pair of goals in an 18-1 rout of Wicomico High School here on Friday.

Kent County’s boys lacrosse team leveled its record at 4-4, halting a three-game losing streak when it totaled 15 goals — five each against Class 2A opponents Parkside, Kent Island and Easton.

Against WiHi, the Trojans cleared their bench after building a 10-0 lead at halftime.

Aiden Ruiz, Victor Vujanic, Ashton Dean and Gabe Parr picked up their first points as high school players.

Ruiz, Colin Fry, Martin Parrish, Ethan Clark, Landon Wallace, Jack Fry and Peter Sine each scored twice, while Nick Stead, Bryce Jacobs, Vujanic and Dean each contributed a goal.

Twelve of the Trojans’ goals were assisted, with Bridgewater College-commit Will Speakman leading the way with four. Dean had a pair of assists; the Fry brothers, Clark, Wallace, Sine and Parr each had one.

Also of note: Brady Sutton, a first-year lacrosse player, won 11 face-offs; freshman Parr scooped up a game-best four ground balls, while Wallace, Stead, Speakman and Ryan Myers each had three; and David Daniels was required to make only five saves.

Class 1A Kent County has a 12-game schedule that is heavy with 2A opponents. For the most part, the 2A schools are a cut above.

KCHS head coach Tom Speakman seems to be taking that in stride.

“Playing against larger schools is a chance for us to get better,” he said in an interview after the 15-5 loss to Kent Island on April 12.

“We’re playing a lot of guys. They’ve got good attitudes and they’re all working together,” Speakman added. “I’m tickled with these guys.”

Kent County, which has matched last year’s win total, closes out its regular season with two home games next week: Wednesday, May 1 against North Caroline and Friday, May 5 against Cambridge.
