The Dukes Lacrosse Club enjoyed much success this weekend, winning a title and adding a runner-up finish at the Best of the Best (BOB) Club Showcase on Long Island while also seeing its Triple H 2017 squad take gold at the Young Gunz in Baltimore.
At the BOB in Hempstead, the Dukes 2016 squad edged Team Minnesota, 6-5 for the 2016 crown on a game-winning goal by Ada, Goldner (Malvern Prep). That came after a heartbreaking 4-3 loss to Team Turnpike in the 2014 final. The Dukes 2 also fared well but just missed making the playoffs in the 2014 Division.
In the 2015 Division at BOB, Twist Lacrosse reached the final by defeating the CT Chargers, 4-1, but fell to Leading Edge, 7-0, in the championship.
Meanwhile, down at Boys’ Latin, Mike Drake scored the tying and winning goals as Dukes HHH rallied to defeat the Baltimore Crabs, 6-5 for the championship. The Dukes were down, 4-0 and later 5-1 before making their dramatic comeback.
