Trojans enjoy 3-1 start in boys lacrosse

CENTREVILLE — The different, good vibe that coach Tom Speakman said he senses about Kent County High School’s boys lacrosse team is reflected on the scoreboard.

The Trojans opened the season with three wins in their first four games, punctuated by the 11-7 triumph at Gunston during spring break last week.

The last time these two schools met, at Gunston in 2022, the home team came out on top, 4-3. What helped to keep the game close was Kent team MVP Ronald Parker’s 16 saves.

In the rematch on April 4, net-minder David Daniels (four saves) was not tested as often. Plus, senior midfielder Martin Parrish, who sat out the 2022 season, scored six goals and assisted on another for the victors.

The midfield of Parrish, Ethan Clark and Landon Wallace collectively scored nine goals and won 11 face-offs. 

From attack, Will Speakman was two-and-one and brothers Jack and Colin Fry totaled three assists.

To date, the Trojans’ biggest offensive production is the 20 goals they scored in a win March 27 at North East of Cecil County.

Parrish and Wallace provided the one-two punch with seven and six goals, respectively.

Wallace was especially efficient with his career high of six goals coming on just eight shots.

Speakman contributed four goals, Clark added two and Colin Fry had the Trojans’ other score.

Clark’s line included six won face-offs and a career-high five assists.

Jack Fry, Parrish and Wallace each had two helpers.

Senior midfielder Brady Sutton, a first-year lacrosse player, won four face-offs.

Daniels was credited with three saves.

The road-weary Trojans, who have had only one home game thus far, are home 4 p.m. today (Friday, April 12) against the two-time defending Class 2A state champions from Kent Island. 

KCHS is back on the road April 17 at Easton, before returning home April 19 to face off against Wicomico.
