On a cold and rainy Wednesday night the No. 24 ranked Salesianum Sal hosted the No. 21 nationally ranked St Mary’s Saints of Maryland. The two teams were ranked so close for a reason. These two teams were evenly matched and this game proved that. 

The Sals and Saints were tied at halftime by a score of 4-4, then tied at the end of regulation by a score of 7-7 which then forced the game to go into overtime. After the end  regulation it only took 88 seconds in overtime for the Sals to strike.

Senior Carson Robins took a pass on the left side of the net which he was one on one with the Saints goalie and fired a shot past him in the upper corner of the net which gave the Sals an 8-7 victory. After the goal the Sals rushed the field as they knocked off their first nationally ranked opponent of the season.

The official stats were unavailable after the game, but Robins led Salesianum with 4 goals while registering a hat trick in regulation.


Salesianum has multiple nationally ranked opponents still on their schedule. Starting this Saturday as they travel to play Chaminade (NY) who is currently ranked 7th in the nation. They also play Lawrenceville (NJ) who is the No. 1 ranked team, and Malvern Prep (PA) ranked at No. 8.


The Saints were ranked 21st by the USA Lacrosse Magazine. The Sals were sitting right behind them, ranked 24th in the nation. If they can go to Chaminade this weekend and pull off an upset it could catapult the Sals up the national rankings.
