Salesianum School was within two goals midway the third period of today’s game at national power Calvert Hall (Md.)
The host Cardinals then took over and claimed a 13-5 victory over the defending Delaware state champions, who fell to 1-1.
The Sals (1-1) got two goals from Troy Reeder and a goal and two assists from Sean Giampietro. Calvert Hall (4-1) was coming off an 11-10 loss to Conestoga Friday in a game that will probably knock it off the perch as the No. 1 team in the nation ? but that also made the task that much together for Salesianum.
“I thought we played hard and we made some mistakes that they capitalized on and you can’t do that against a Calvert Hall,” said Sals coach Bobby Healy. “Coming off of a loss we knew they’d be ready to play. But we matched their intensity level and we were swinging toe to toe.”
The Sals are hoping this year to repeat as Delaware champs and make noise on the national scale.
“I thought we definitely took a step in the right direction, without a doubt,” said Healy. “It’s our second game of the year and we need to clean up a few things ? once we do that, hopefully good things will happen.”

I wonder if the Sals would've made it closer of they had a few more games under their belts.
