He was a two-time first-team all-league selection and helped his squad to back-to-back section championships in 2009 and 2010. Hunt also played football and basketball.

DeLuca on Hunt: Connor will bring to the team what we’ve been lacking on defense over the past few seasons, as he has tremendous size. He’s a great athlete and is one of the best defenders in his class. We’re excited to see what he will be able to do based on his size, range and skills.

Northern California High School Boys Lacrosse: De Lasalle Boys Lacrosse Sr. Middie Chris Pereira Is Named 2010 East Bay Boys Lacrosse (EBAL) Player Of The Year

With the East Bay Athletic League being very balanced this year, the Bay Area News Group East Bay Boys Lacrosse

Player of the Year selection could have gone in a number of directions. But thanks to a tremendous run in the North Coast Section playoffs, De La Salle High senior Chris Pereira separated himself from the rest of the field.

“He’s that type of player,” De La Salle coach Bob O’Meara said. “He’s going to come up big when it matters most. Down the stretch in NCS, when we needed it, he came up big.”

The Spartans won their second straight section championship thanks in large part to Pereira’s heroics in the title game against top-seeded Foothill.

With his team down 10-9 in the waning seconds, Pereira fired a seed from the top of the box, scoring with 10 seconds left to tie the game and send it to overtime.

In the second overtime period, Pereira came up big again, scoring the game-winning goal.

Orange County High School Boys Lacrosse: Foothill Knights Boys Lacrosse (3-0) To Face De LaSalle (2-0) In Battle Of Top California Teams

Foothill’s boys lacrosse team has won three Southern Section titles in a row.

Can the Knights win a fourth consecutive crown?

Foothill looks like it has a legitimate shot based on the returning players from last year’s 20-5 team that defeated Loyola of Los Angeles, 10-7, in the section championship.

“It’s possible, we should be in the running,” Foothill coach Jon Fox said. “We have the advantage of having been there. We have a good amount of returners with some experience and the same coaching staff back, which is good.”

Leading the way is senior goalie Nathan Kleponis, who had 10 saves in three quarters in the sectional title match. Also returning is senior attack Taylor Deberry, who scored the last-second winning goal against El Toro in the quarterfinal round of the county playoffs.

Junior attack Cameron Cole, who scored four goals in the county finals against Corona del Mar; senior attack Tucker Rowe, who had five assists in the semifinals against Los Alamitos and senior defenseman Tyler Ogata, also return.

Cooper Pickell, the leading midfield scorer last year, also returns, but the junior will join the team late after completing his postseason play with the boys basketball team.

Junior midfielders Matt Browne and Josh Giglio and senior midfielder Trevor Brown are also key parts of the team, Fox said.

“The offense should have firepower so it’s up to the defense to get them the ball,” Fox said.

Foothill is also looking for its fourth consecutive county title and fourth consecutive Sea View League crown.

Northern California High School Boys Lacrosse: Monte Vista Boys Lacrosse Defeats Amador Valley 12-10 And Advances To Championship Game With De La Salle On Saturday

monte vista boys lacrosseFor three quarters, the Monte Vista and Amador Valley high school boys lacrosse teams played crisp, sharp and intense North Coast Section playoff lacrosse; and heading into the fourth quarter, it didn’t matter.

Heading into the final frame tied 6-6, all that mattered was who won that quarter, and it was the second-seeded Mustangs who prevailed, 12-10, advancing to Saturday’s championship match at 3 p.m. Saturday at Dublin High against De La Salle, which beat Berkeley 16-4.

“In the fourth quarter, we took over on groundballs,” Monte Vista coach Mike Lambrecht said. “For the first three quarters, we were getting beat, but in the fourth we turned it around.”

John Solomon also played a large part in turning things around as the Mustangs (16-6) erased a 6-4 deficit by scoring six goals in a row, a pair to end the third and four to start the fourth.

“He keyed it up for us,” Lambrecht said of Solomon. “We got two quick goals off the face-off, and that shifted momentum.”

Solomon scored three goals in a row, which included a pair within 24 seconds of each other at the beginning of the fourth.

“We just had a lot of drive and a lot of heart heading into that fourth quarter,” Solomon said. “We were realizing that we didn’t want this to be it for our season, and we started dominating on ground balls. That turned the game around, and in the fourth quarter I didn’t see one that we didn’t get.”

The No. 3 Dons (17-4) led 3-2 athalftime and scored the second half’s first two goals to race out to a three-goal lead but couldn’t keep from losing to the Mustangs for the third time this season.


Northern California High School Boys Lacrosse: North Coast Section Playoff Semi-Finals On May 20 To Feature Berkeley High School Boys Lacrosse Vs. De La Salle; Monte Vista Will Play Amador Valley

There are four teams left, and by late Wednesday night, it will be down to two.

1. Monte Vista (15-6)

2. Amador Valley (17-3)

3. De La Salle (15-4)

4. Berkeley (18-1)

Berkeley LacrosseThe Berkeley High School boys lacrosse team is one of those four teams, coming up with a North Coast Section playoff run, and a season, they probably couldn’t have imagined.

Now, the ultimate test for the Yellow Jackets. They will face the top-seeded De La Salle Spartans in one of the Wednesday semifinals.

The Yellow Jackets passed a big test in their quarterfinal match against Acalanes, beating the Dons 6-5 after losing to them 7-3 earlier in the season.

But Wednesday will be the ultimate test in their season.

The second semifinal featuring No. 3 Amador Valley at No. 2 Monte Vista is going to be a knock ’em down, drag ’em out fight.

Both teams are very capable of winning the NCS title, and they will leave nothing on the field.

The teams finished tied at 11-3 in the East Bay Athletic League, but Monte Vista won both head-to-head matchups.

To touch on the girls bracket, top-seeded Monte Vista is the clear favorite. The Mustangs went 14-0 in the EBAL and also did not lose to an NCS team. They face No. 5 Amador Valley, a team the Mustangs have beaten twice.

No. 2 California and No. 3 Carondelet (teams that finished in that order in the EBAL) will face off for the right at a third shot at Monte Vista.


Northern California High School Boys Lacrosse: #5 De La Salle Spartans Face #11 Monte Vista Danville Mustangs On May 1

 delasallelacrosse21De La Salle Spartans, CA (# 5) vs. Monte Vista Danville Mustangs, CA (# 11)

Two of Northern California’s elite squads will face off for the second time this year with the Mustangs looking for revenge after a 12-11 loss to the Spartans on March 31. The squad is a nice mix of talented underclassmen and experienced seniors but the go-to player is junior attackman Ryan Lieber.

The Spartans have only suffered three losses, to Saint Ignatius Prep (PR: 98.75), Coronado (PR: 98.55) and Amador Valley (PR:96.90). They were the only games in which the Spartans failed to score more than 10 goals. If the Mustangs want to win they will have to limit Spartans senior midfielder Nick Richards from making any plays.
