Start With A Bang
Maryland’s Public schools got started last week and quite a few teams opened with a bang. Six teams scored at least 15 goals in their season opener, including a Chesapeake (Md.) squad that opened with 20.
Mike Harmeyer tied the Severna Park (Md.) program record for most goals in a game with 10 in an 18-0 win over Northeast (Md.), according to the Capital Gazette. Harmeyer tied former Falcon and current UMBC player Trevor Patschorke.
Danny McMinn from Briar Woods (Va.) became the program’s all-time leading scorer on Saturday. The senior entered the year with 211 points on 135 assists and 76 goals. The previous program record was 234 points which was held by Cole Pearsall (Class of 2017). McMinn scored three assists and a goal in the win over Loudoun Valley (Va.) to get the record Friday night.
On the year, he has 23 points in four games, which has moved him into the Top 25 all-time in Virginia. McMinn has 10 regular-season games left, plus potential playoff games to increase his total and climb the record book.
Georgetown Prep (Md.) snapped its two-game losing streak with a 15-10 win over Archbishop Spalding (Md.).

They still have an inter-conference game against defending IAC champion Bullis (Md.) on April 1. Gonzaga is the defending Washington Catholic Athletic Conference champion.
