The Glen Cove Boy's Lacrosse Team moved their record to 3-1 with a thrilling 11-10 win over Great Neck South. Tyler Ravener scored the game-winner with just 10 seconds remaining on a feed from Mike Pappachristou to give Glen Cove the victory.
The Big Red spotted the Rebels a 3-1 lead after the first quarter, but came back strong in the second to tie the game at 6 at the half. Once again, the score was tied after the third quarter 8-8, when the Big Red came out storming in the fourth to take a 10-9 lead. The Rebels would not give up, and knotted the game once again with just over two minutes to go.
Although Doug Tripp controlled the face off, the Big Red could not capitalize as two shots hit the post, giving South the ball with 30 seconds to go. A tenacious ride led to Great Neck throwing the ball the length of the field. Garen Spendjian would get a big groundball for Glen Cove, and quickly get the ball to goalie Brendan Huggins. Huggs quickly outletted the ball to Eric Tripp, who saw Pappachristou at the midfield line. A 2-on-1 with Tyler left the Rebel goalie defenseless, as Tyler netted the game winner.
Offensively, the Big Red had six scorers on the day. Eric Tripp led with 3 goals and 4 assists, Tyler Ravener and Zach Rubin each added 2 goals and 1 assist, Kevin Gardrvits also had two goals. Dougie Tripp had a goal and an assist, Ryan Zupa had one goal and Mike Pappachristou had an assist.
Although not scoring, Rafael Montes, Owen Valance, Charles Ring, Chris Borer and Adan Kornfeld added to the Glen Cove offense.
Defensively, Brendan Huggins stood tall in the goal, making 20 saves on the day. George Weck, Garen Spendjian, Brandon Winkler, Lewis Linares, and Phil Voegetlen worked hard defending the Rebel attack.
