Andrew Degrassi scored from 20 yards off an assist from Steven Nworjih 20 minutes into the game and Nworjih scored off an assist from Christian Mazzone with 15 minutes left for Ward Melville in a 2-0 win over St. Anthony's tonight. St. Anthony's is ranked No. 30th nationally in ESPN's FAB 50. Jack Bruckner made eight saves in the win.
"It's not often a public school gets to play a private school," Ward Melville coach Jon Stecker said. "This was a very big challenge. This is one of the biggest victories we had."
The teams played for the third consecutive year with the Friars winning the first two.
"I don't think they expected us to play with them," Stecker said. "We knew we had a chance this year."
