Upset of the Week
Archbishop Spalding (Md.) snapped Boys’ Latin (Md.) two-game winning streak with a 9-5 win last week. Jake Oliver made 13 saves and Russell Melendez had two goals and two assists in the win for Spalding.
The Cavaliers entered the game with one win in MIAA A Conference play and are out of the conference playoff hunt. The Lakers, however, now run the risk of missing the playoffs entirely. They play Gilman (Md.) and St. Paul’s (Md.) and need to win one of those to make the playoffs. They could still finish as high as third.

The Sanford (Del.) senior scored six goals and two assists in a 14-6 win over Tower Hill (Del.) to bring his career totals to 336 career points on 212 career goals. The previous records were 325 points and 202 goals by Andrew Pettit of Tower Hill (Del.).
