Recent Georgetown graduate Brendan Cannon (Haverford School) scored the first three goals of his professional career July 6 for Chicago in an 18-16 loss to the Los Angeles Riptide in Major League Lacrosse (MLL) action.
Cannon led Georgetown (9-4 overall, ranked 11th in the nation) in scoring with 23 goals and 21 assists for 44 points in 2008, despite missing the final game of the regular season with an injury. A three-time first-team All-ECAC selection, Cannon finished the season first in the ECAC, and 15th nationally, with 3.58 points per game, and fourth in the ECAC, and 17th in the country, with 1.77 points per game.
Cannon graduated as one of the most explosive offensive players in Georgetown history, scoring 73 goals and 84 assists for 157 points in 54 career games. Also a three-time All-American selection, Cannon’s 157 career points rank seventh all-time at Georgetown.
Also for Georgetown this year, senior midfielder Scott Kahoe (Radnor) returned from a major shoulder injury that forced him to miss his junior year. He played in all 13 games, starting two, and had three goals, two assists and six groundballs.
Junior middie Todd Cochran (Conestoga) was sixth on the Hoyas with 10 goals and added eight groundballs. Senior defender Chris Early (Radnor) played in five games and had two groundballs.
Freshman attacker Drew Brady (Penncrest) tallied 14 goals and added 6 assists for 11th-ranked (in Division III) Villa Julie (13-4), which fell to top-ranked and eventual national champion Salisbury, 20-10, in the Capital Athletic Conference championship game. Brady’s highlight was a hat trick March 12 in a 17-5 rout of Wheaton College.
Also for Villa Julie, freshman defender Ian Hart (Ridley) played in 11 games and scooped eight groundballs and sophomore middie Jon O’Donnell (Great Valley) had three groundballs in three games.
