Senior Matt Thompson had his best game ever for the Verona High School boys lacrosse team yesterday, scoring eight goals and driving the team to its first win this season, a 17-2 rout of Union City.

It’s been a rebuilding year for Hillbilly boys lacrosse and the underclassmen are beginning to find their footing. Chris Luehs, a sophomore, had three goals and one assist in the victory, while fellow VHS 2016 players Dane Kish and Kevin White added two goals apiece. Freshmen Eric Stoloff and Doug Spardel also scored. The boys team is now 1-9, with five games left on the schedule. They take on Hanover Park at home on Thursday.

In other sports, the baseball team defeated Columbia High School, while softball fell to Newark Academy.

Senior Max Vasile led his 7-3 team from the plate, pitching a four-hitter and striking out seven in the 5-1 victory at home. Matt Rubins scored two runs, while both Luke Weiss and Paul Chanley pounded out triples.

In softball, Caroline Chivily went 2-for-2, but it was not enough to carry Verona past Newark Academy in the 6-3 loss. Shelly Herman and Olivia Haveron each had a run. The softball team, which is 4-5 on the season, is home today against Glen Ridge.
