The Radnor B1 boys lacrosse team won the team championship in the U13 Mohawk Division at the Liberty Lacrosse Shootout in Malvern on June 11.
Radnor defeated the BYC Bulldogs in the finals, 5-2, after falling behind, 2-0. Radnor won two games in pool play to reach the playoffs and topped a tough Lebanon Valley team in the semifinals, 8-4, behind solid defense and balanced scoring from the midfield and attack.
Goaltender Tucker Ballbach was outstanding all day for Radnor, making 13 saves in the finals. The defense was led by Chris Hervada, Jack Gisel, and Liam McCall, who shut down opposing attackers all day. Radnor had goals from Mac Updike, Alex Bernicker, Jack Miler, Seamus Glynn, Max Brooks, Clayton Proctor, and Kevin Seits.
“We had a solid season but came up short in the playoffs, so we really wanted to end on a high note,” said Bernicker. “Today’s championship was great.”
Coach Clint Brooks added, “The boys worked really hard all day and Updike was unstoppable. Ballbach made some great saves, too! I am very proud of the effort.”
The team is coached by Brooks, Enrique Hervada, and Chuck Bernicker and plays in the SEPYLA Southern Division.
