Baldwin's boys' varsity lacrosse team generated back-to-back 15-point offensive outputs last week.

The result was a pair of impressive WPIAL Division II victories against Chartiers Valley, 15-8, and Latrobe, 15-6.

Baldwin improved to 9-4 on the year, and has two games remaining on the 2013 regular-season schedule.

The Highlanders closed out last week's action in second place in Section 2, a half-game behind another local squad, Seton-La Salle.

Against Latrobe, Baldwin's starting lineup consisted of seniors Jake Naylor and Rico Roberto, and junior Wes Richards, at the attacker positions; and senior Nicolas Tulenko, junior Matt Dieter and sophomore Andrew Hulsman, at midfield.

On defense, the starters were seniors Brian Betz, Nick Mitchell and Anthony Barbano, and junior Enzo Ruscitto; in front of junior goalkeeper Kevin Moore.

The Highlanders' leading reserves included a host of players, including Louie Reda, a senior attacker; Rocco Ruscitto, a sophomore midfielder; Joe Tulenko, a sophomore defenseman; Kaleb Reckley, a senior midfielder; Tony Thornton, a junior midfielder; Matt Pepper, a senior mifielder; Evan Snyder, a sophomore midfielder; Dylan Hipchen, a senior defenseman; Dan Goga, a junior defenseman; and Victory Murhpy, a senior midfielder.

The local squad, which lost at Fox Chapel earlier this week, 14-4, is slated to end its regular season next week with home games against Quaker Valley and Winchester-Thurston.
