WILMINGTON – Ben Revak continued an outstanding season by scoring five goals to lead second-ranked Archmere past No. 3 Tower Hill in boys lacrosse on April 16.

Chris Miller put Tower Hill on the board, but the Auks’ defense shut the Hillers down the rest of the half. Revak scored his second to make it 4-1 at the end of the first.
The Auks got the only two goals of the second quarter as Revak got his hat trick and Robert Baxter added his first, giving Archmere a 6-1 halftime lead.
The Auks added to their lead early in the third quarter as Connor Dennewitz scored to make it 7-1 before the Hillers finally ended their scoring drought with a goal by Dougie McCoy.
Archmere was up 8-2 late in the third when the Hillers got two quick goals in the final 24 seconds to cut it to 8-4. The Auks got the first 2 goals of the final quarter as Revak scored again to give the Auks a 10-4 lead.
Tower Hill’s Carter Cucuzzella and Jamie Spartin scored late goals, the second one on a man-up to cut it to 10-6. Revak then scored in the final minute as the Auks improved to 6-1.
