NEW CANAAN, Conn. The Harvey School boys lacrosse team of Katonah visited St. Lukes Friday in the semifinal game of the New England Lacrosse Association Division II-III Tournament, losing only its second game of the season, 5-4.
Harvey (16-2), winners of a second consecutive Hudson Valley Athletic League championship this season, came within inches of a chance for a New England small schools championship. The Cavs only two losses came at the hands of St. Lukes.
The Cavaliers got goals by Rickey Schulman and Brandon Hickey in the first quarter while shutting out St. Lukes offense for a 2-0 lead, but the host scored twice in the second and kept Harvey out of the net. Both teams traded goals in the third period for a 3-3 tie going into the final quarter.
The score remained 3-3 until Tyler Brennan beat Harvey keeper James Underwood with four minutes remaining in the game and St. Lukes made it 5-3 a minute later. Harvey battled back with a shot from Schulman with 22 seconds left in the game to make it 5-4. Then, with just three seconds left, Mitch Bowman fired one at the St. Lukes net, but the St. Lukes goalkeeper made the winning stop as the final buzzer sounded.
Harveys goalkeeper James Underwood made nine saves in goal.
