Tim Golder collected four goals and two assists and Eric Waibel added three goals and an assist as host Avon Grove spoiled the homecoming of a charter member of the program with a 13-4 victory over Servite High (CA) today in a boys’ lacrosse.

Servite is coached by Kevin Wallace, a 2004 Avon Grove graduate who was a starter on the first Devils team in 2001. The Friars (3-9) also played Bishop Shanahan (9-1 loss) on Tuesday and play at Archbishop Wood Friday.

Wallace – who played at suburban Philly Ursinus College (PA) – started all four years under Eric Jackson, who started the Avon Grove program and remains the school’s only coach. Jackson’s squad rebounded from a 12-11 loss to Spring-Ford on Monday and improved to 3-1, but the focus was on connecting with an old lacrosse friend who started a program of his own three years ago in Anaheim.

“It was a neat experience to have a former player come back,” said Jackson. “He was a great kid, and we have become good friends. We played with class and they played with class.”

Pat Brodie added two goals for the Devils.
