Dragons rout Gerstell on the road

Paced by a hat-trick by senior Jai Bhatnagar, Glenelg Country went on the road, Wednesday, and routed Gerstell Academy, 12-2, in the MIAA B Conference lacrosse opener for both teams.
It was all the overall season lid-lifter for both teams, but the visiting Dragons came out in near mid-season form, scoring nine goals in the first half as they built a 9-1 lead.
Freshman Will Hopkins had two goals and two assists, junior Connor Malone had two goals and one assist, and senior Riley Martin also scored twice. Rocco Buscher, Tristan McKneely and Matt Palmisano all added one goal, while Finn Schmidt and Joey Welsh each added an assist.
Chris Kovalsky and Drew Huber scored for Gerstell, which is the reigning B Conference champion.
