Mon 05/12 4PMChatham A Won 9-6 Summit won its eleventh consecutive game over Chatham(10-6). Summit is now 11-2. A good local rivalry, Chatham looking to move up in the rankings with a win over higher ranked Summit, and Summit not forgetting the tough game Chatham gave them in last year's State quarter finals, charged up both teams.

Thu 05/15 4PM Ridgewood A Won 8-5 Summit had its biggest victory of the season with a win over Ridgewood at Ridgewood. Ridgewood is ranked third in the Star Ledger Lacrosse Top 15. Summit played its best game of the season. In tense situations, the team showed poise and confidence. With the County and State Tournaments beginning next week, Coach Davidson has the team peaking at the right time. J.R Parker didn't waste any time getting it started. He controlled the opening faceoff and went right to the goal, scoring unassisted. Todd Kaiser, on a feed from Anson Fraser, scored Summit's second goal. A Todd Branchflower goal on an assist from J.R.Parker, followed by an unassisted goal by Mike Dugan closed out the first quarter with Summit up 4-2. Kaiser scored twice in the second quarter, the second on an assist from Mike Dugan, and the half ended with Summit up 6-3. In the third quarter Dugan scored his second goal and Kaiser had his fourth with an assist from Dugan. The quarter closed with Summit up 8-4 and suddenly Ridgewood looked like they could be taken. But there was still a quarter to be played. Ridgewood scored once in the fourth, but couldn't maintain any offensive momentum against Summit's defense. All game Ned Hillendbrand, Chris Conlon, Lowell Shih and Brendan Feeney played agressive, fast and physical defense that frustrated the Ridgewood offense. Robbie Schroeder, with 17 saves, was outstanding in goal. Although there was no Summit scoring in the fourth quarter, unselfish team play controlled the ball and used the clock to protect the lead. Summit is now 13-2.  (reporting by Gerard Dugan)

Wed 05/21 430PM Westfield
UCT Finals @ Kean
Won 4-3 Summit defeated Westfield to win the inaugural Union County Lacrosse Tournament. This defensive battle between the top two seeds was a fitting final for this first year tournament. Midfielder John Alpizar scored early in the first quarter to put Summit up 1-0. Westfield came right back and the quarter ended 1-1. The second quarter was Summit's. Goals by Mike Dugan off a pass from Max Tcheyan and an unassisted goal by Todd Branchflower had Summit up 3-1 at the half. J.R. Parker's unassisted goal, the only score in the third quarter, made it 4-1 Summit going into the fourth. After two quick goals by Westfield early in the fourth quarter, any breathing room Summit had was shrinking quickly. It was now 4-3 with 8 minutes on the clock. At this point, Summit's defense just dug in and shut down everything Westfield could come up with over the next seven minutes. Ned Hillenbrand, Chris Conlon, Lowell Shih, and defensive middies John Alpizar, Jonas Carr and Brendan Feeney denied Westfield clear shots, got ground balls and cleared to the offensive end. With just over a minute to play, the defense forced a turnover and Summit had possession. After a timeout, Westfield pulled their goalie, and despite the extra pressure of double teaming the ball, Summit protected the ball in the offensive end as the final minute ticked down. Robbie Schroeder was outstanding in goal throughout the game and recorded 10 saves. Schroeder was selected Most Valuable Player. Summit is now 15-2. (reporting by Gerard Dugan)
Sat 05/24NoonShawnee H
State Tournament
Won 6-1 Summit defeated Shawnee to advance to the third round of the State Tournament. Shawnee came into the game with a 15-0 record, but was unranked and, as a new program, relatively unknown. Heavy rain on Friday and a bleak weather forecast for game day forced the game to be moved to the artificial turf field at Livingston High School. Mike Dugan, on an assist from Eric Lupton, scored Summit's first goal and the score at the end of the first quarter was 1-0. Summit had a big second quarter. Todd Branchflower, off Lupton's second assist, opened the scoring. Geoff Marks, on a feed by Dugan, scored followed by an unassisted Max Tcheyan goal kept the momentum going. Geoff Marks' second goal with an assist by Todd Kaiser put Summit up 5-0 at halftime. Lupton's third quarter goal on a feed from Todd Kaiser closed out Summit's scoring. Summit's defense overwhelmed Shawnee, allowing only one goal. Ned Hillenbrand, Chris Conlon and Lowell Shih held Shawnee to very few good shots and Robbie Schroeder had 8 saves in goal. Uncharacteristically, Summit had 6 penalties, but the man-down unit which includes Brendan Feeney, Connor Lyons, John Alpizar and Jonas Carr gave up no goals. Summit is now 16-2 and will play Westfield in the next round. (reporting by Gerard Dugan) 
Wed 05/28 4PM Westfield H Won 10-6 After a one day weather postponement, Summit met Westfield on Tatlock Field in this third round Sate Tournament game. This game was not only going to determine which team would move on in the tournament, but also which was the better team. Splitting wins in the regular season and the UCT, after 96 minutes of lacrosse, the cumulative score stood at 9-9. Add to that that it is the lose and go home time of the season, the stage was set for an exciting game. Todd Kaiser's unassisted first quarter goal was all the scoring in the quarter; Summit 1-0. Westfield went up 2-1 in the second but Todd Branchflower evened it with an unassisted goal. With less than a minute to go, Mike Dugan put Summit up with a goal on an assist from Todd Kaiser. Summit 3-2 at the half and it looked like the game might be a replay of the first two meetings. Summit came out shooting in the third quarter and found its offense. Goals by J.R. Parker(Kaiser assist), Kaiser(Tcheyan assist), Mike Dugan(Parker assist) and Branchflower closed the quarter with Summit up 7-4. Fourth quarter goals by Branchflower, Anson Fraser, and J.R. Parker closed out Summit's scoring, but 2 Westfield fourth quarter goals kept it interesting. Robbie Schroeder had 8 saves in goal and Westfield was held to about 5 shots in the first half. Summit is now 17-2 and will play Ramapo at Ramapo on Saturday (1PM) in the quarter finals. (reporting by Gerard Dugan)
Sat 05/31 1PM Ramapo Lost 6-3 Summit's 17 game win streak and its bid for a third consecutive final four appearance ended in the rainsoaked gloom at Ramapo's arificial turf field on Saturday. Summit lost to 20-1 Ramapo. Seniors Ned Hillenbrand, Lowell Shih, J. R. Parker, Todd Branchflower, Jonas Carr, Max Tcheyan, and Eric Lupton gave it all they had, and more, but Summit couldn't overcome Ramapo's 3 goal first half lead. Summit didn't get on the board until the third quarter when Jake Lecky scored on an assist from Eric Lupton and the quarter closed with Ramapo up 4-1. Todd Branchflower scored unassisted in the fourth, but Ramapo came back with 2 goals. Max Tcheyan's unassisted goal with less than a minute to go made it 6-3 as the final seconds ticked away. Despite this disappoinment, this team has plenty of reasons to hold their heads up. Most thought this would be a rebuilding year, too much was lost to graduation, and the team was too young. Fortunately these messages never got through to Coach Davidson, his staff or the players. An undefeated Fitch Division season, a UCT Championship, quality wins over Ridgewood and Westfield and 17 in a row are testimony to their hardwork, skill, and teamwork. It was a great run and fun to watch. (reporting by Gerard Dugan)
