Huskies Fall In Boys Lacrosse Semifinals

MIDDLETOWN – The streak is over.

Long live the streak.

The Highland High School boys lacrosse team’s remarkable four straight Section 9 championships came to an end on Thursday when the third-seeded Huskies lost at No. 2 Minisink Valley, 10-8, in the Section 9, Class B semifinals.

Highland, a combined team with Marlboro, finishes the season at 13-4.










“I am very proud of this team. The boys showed tremendous grit and relentless effort. To be down 7-1 midway through the second quarter and to fight back into it the way we did, I can’t say enough about these boys,” Highland coach Tom Schlappich said. “We played an incredibly difficult schedule this year and lost a 10-8 road playoff game to a very good Minisink Valley team. I believe we had a fantastic season.”

Roger Hegeman scored two goals for the Huskies. Jack Young, Christian Canino, Danny Rusk, Chris Hammond, Jake Ward and Dean Klotz all scored a goal as well.

Highland’s Lenny Casabura made eight saves.

Matt Biddle made 10 saves for Minisink, which will play No. 1 Warwick on Tuesday, May 28, at Faller Field in Middletown at 4 p.m.
