Near-perfection.

The Seton-La Salle boys' varsity lacrosse team streaked to 11 consecutive wins this season before stumbling against Bethel Park, 10-9, last week.

The Rebels rebounded with a 16-5 win at Moon to close out the regular season with a 12-1 overall record.

Seton-La Salle landed the No. 1 seed in the WPIAL Division II playoffs, and will host Latrobe tonight, Thursday, at 7.

The Rebels have been led defensively by juniors Liam McLane and Mike Kalnas, and sophomore Jacob Blahut.

Gino DiPerno is a junior long-stick middie, while Noah Kaib, Anthony Shoplik and Mike Pritchard are junior midfielders, and Brendan Donavan is a senior midfielder.

On attack, Seton-La Salle has been paced by sophomore Conor Quinlan, the team's leading scorer, senior Matt McGervey and junior Colin Bashaw, while sophomore Dom Tolomeo has been relied upon heavily for faceoffs.

Kevin Hudson, a junior, is the team's starting goalkeeper.

Baldwin storms into WPIAL playoffs

The Baldwin boys' lacrosse team won five of its final six regular-season games and ended up with a 12-5 overall record.

Mars (7-6) enters the playoffs on a three-game losing streak. The Planets dropped decisions to Indiana, Hampton and Quaker Valley at the end of the regular season.

Baldwin has been led by 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 the midfield area.

On defense, junior goalkeeper Kevin Moore has been protected by seniors Brian Betz, Nick Mitchell and Anthony Barbano, and junior Enzo Ruscitto.
