Southern California High School Boys Club Lacrosse: OC Crush Defeated Quad Cities 9-6 In Starz Cup Lacrosse Championship High School Division Finals On Aug. 7

High School Championship: Quad Cities vs. OC Crush

OC Crush - 2010 Starz Cup Southern California High School Division Champions

and the OC Crush. A classic North/South showdown, QC hails from the Ranch Bernardo area and is coached by former UMBC defender Travis Begay, while the OC Crush is comprised mainly of Foothill HS players coached by Nick Pickell. The count is 4-1 in favor of the Crush as we’re underway in the second half. The first draw is contested heavily by QC’s Brennan O’Malley ( Rancho Bernardo 13’) before being scooped up by LSM Nicholas McEneany (Rancho Bernardo 12’). The first two possessions are a bit sloppy, as we have some quick turnovers of both offensive ends. OC Crush finds themselves with possession until Nicholas McEneany makes a nice takeaway at the GLE and clears the ball up field. Quad Cities settles the ball on offense, and makes a nice save to the crease that is thwarted from a low save from OC Crush goalie Teddy Ochia. A stellar riding effort from QC rewards them with another possession as OC Crush overturns the ball in their defensive end. In the ensuing possession, a QC attackmen forces a feed to the crease that is tipped backwards into their own net. A bit of a right time right place scenario for Quad Cities as the score is now 4-2. With momentum on their side, Quad cities again looks to strike again off the draw, but an errant pass results in a fast-break for the OC Crush. The Crush’s attack sets up in textbook-break fashion but is stopped on the doorstep by QC goalie Caleb Pyrle (Rancho Bernardo 12’) who makes a tremendous low-to-high save. After an athletic out of goal scrambling effort, QC’s Caleb Pryle is called for failure to advance giving possession back to the Crush. In formation, a Crush attackmen draws an early slide from X before dishing to attackmen Connor Herrell (Foothill 13’) for the easy score putting the OC Crush up by two late in the half. The Crush waste no time off the ensuing draw as midfielder Colin Cummins (Foothill 13’) capitalizes off an outside rip at the top of the box with just over two minutes remaining. With the two minute drill in effect, the Crush are recipient to some good pressure-D from Quad Cities and promptly take an ill-advised shot giving Quad Cities the final possession. Abbot Pratt (Rancho Bernard 12’) goes down swinging as he comes around from X and dunks the ball low on the Crush goalie.

Final Score: OC Crush 9, Quad Cities 6

San Diego Swerve Wins 1st Annual Palm Desert Lacrosse Classic On November 28-29

“…Swerve beat Orange County’s “OC Crush” 9-2 in the final game to win the 1st Annual, Palm Desert Lacrosse Classic…”


San Diego Swerve”, a boys high school club team won the 1st Annual Palm Desert Lacrosse Classic at Hovley Soccer Park November 28-29.  Swerve is team compiled of players from different high schools around San Diego county such as Serra, San Dieguito Academy, La Costa Canyon, Carlsbad, La Jolla Country Day and La Jolla.

The success of Swerves’ weekend was lead on the field by TC Whaley (LCC), Bobby Heyer (LCC), Jake Herald (LCC), Taylor Graves (Carlsbad), Taylor Bourgeois (La Jolla) and Mike Soumek (La Jolla). Staff members from Top Notch Training Lacrosse volunteered their time to coach the team and worked with parent volunteers to set up the hotel, food and transportation for the boys. It was nice to see coaches and parents from all parts of San Diego County coming together to help support a great cause.

Lastly, the dues for the tournament were only $155 which included team jersey, shorts, socks, practice time, field rental, hat, tournament t-shirt, hotel room for the night and a year subscripting to “Inside Lacrosse”. Pretty amazing now a days since other travel teams charge much more for much less.

The Swerve beat Orange County’s “OC Crush” 9-2 in the final game to win the 1st Annual, Palm Desert Lacrosse Classic. Swerve’s first place prize was a pair of “Official game Lacrosse Goals” by STX . The TNT Staff, Swerve players and parents decided to donate the goals to two growing lacrosse teams, Carlsbad and Scripps Ranch.

The Palm Desert Lacrosse Classic benefited the San Diego State University Men’s Lacrosse Program. The SDSU Team is self-supportive and is in the process of competing on the national stage of the Men’s College Lacrosse Association. The team works with its alumni to raise money for each player which helps to cover the operating costs much like a “traditional NCAA Division I, II, or III Team.
