(Page 2 of 2)
“We knew we needed a strong defensive effort to beat Jericho,” Hopkins said. “They’re a good team with offensive depth. We saw they had a handful of players with more than 40 points.”
As they have all season, Hopkins said seniors Logan Calman and Jordan Davis, junior Michael Rubino and sophomore long pole Malcolm Kahn led the defense in front of Isaacs. “They were our workhorses back there,” Hopkins said.
Hewlett outscored the Jayhawks 4-3 in each half. Anderson (one goal, two assists), junior Gio Pugliese (one goal) and freshman Jared Strauss (two assists) chipped in offensively.
“We’re saying goodbye to a great group of seniors,” Hopkins said. “We had a good mix of kids, and all of them came to work every day. We’ll look forward to next year when some of the younger guys step into bigger roles.”
