In the championship game Dukes faced Jersey Thunder Black, and jumped out early to get momentum on their side. Some excellent team defensive plays and groundball transition work, led to multi transition goals of the spectacular variety. Dukes won the game 8-5.
Every player contributed to overcome small numbers and playing roles they were not used to but still perserved to get the job done.
Defensively Jeff Kern (Saucon Valley), Matt Petrick (Kennett) also faced off, & David Wolfson (Shipley) controlled the defensive side of the field with aggression and quick slides offball.
Colin Reder (Episcopal Academy) helped keep the net empty and start the break. Chris Friedman (Great Valley), Jace Liszka (Emmaus) did an excellent job as 2 way middies.
Ben Wilkins (Southern Lehigh) was injured in first game.
Team Defensive MVPs went to Ryan Kern (Appoquinmink, DE) and Dustin Buchanan (CB EAST) who dominated groundball play.
Offensively Sam Fink (Salesianum), Brandon Shima (Haverford School), Zach Hare (Springford), Brady O'Neill (Kennett), Colin Strange & Zach Ward (both from Hempfield) provided offensive playmaking abilities and finishing touches at midfield.
Matt Schleicher (Emmaus), Keith White (Methacton) true attackmen were able to run midfield as well and provide scoring power when the opportunities arose.
Team Offensive MVPs went to Andrew Pettit (Tower Hill, DE) and Evan Wolf (Lower Merion).

Game 3 on Saturday was heavily attended by coaches and would be the toughest match up of the tourney for Dukes LC as they faced of against Annapolis Hawks. Great defense and goalie play highlighted this contest, but Dukes LC was able to get a couple of timely manup situations and upper 90 stingers to win 4-2. Drew Supinski (Haverford School) quarterbacked the manup and 1st midline to provide some solid play making abilities on both ends of the field.

Dukes LC earned the #1 seed in their bracket and advanced Sunday into Top 16 playoff round. First round game was played at scenic Boys Latin campus vs Building Blocks (NJ) and it was a tight affair but offense loosened up to pull away 6-3. Jeff Kern (Saucon Valley), Sam Lehrman (Germantown Academy), Matt Petrick (Kennett) were able to be a physical defensive presence to start the playoff round.

Quaterfinal matchup pitted Dukes LC vs Team Michigan, midfield depth and dominant faceoff X contributed to a 8-2 win. Andrew Pettit (Tower Hill), Keith White (Methacton), Matt Donnelly (Clearview, NJ), made some fine passes and finished when opportunities arose.

Semfinal matchup was against the historic Green Turtle program out of MIAA conference. All 3 Dukes goalies in Sean McGovern (CB EAST), Colin Reder (Episcopal Academy) and Ryan Kern (Appoquinmink, DE) had been consistent all tourney and provided last line of defense when needed all weekend. Dukes offensively was clicking and would pull away for a 7-2 victory. Damase Bagbonon (Conestoga) & John Warg (Parkland) provided a spark in transition and created some transition opportunities and timely groundballs at The LSM position.

Championship game pitted two programs that have won this tourney multi times. Baltimore Crabs, who host the tourney, vs Dukes LC who were looking for their 3rd Crabfeast title in 6 tries. Dukes LC was fired up from the start and would jump out to a 4-1 start off some excellent feeds and finishing abilities by Corey Richards (Haverford School). Baltimore Crabs had plenty of chances to keep game close with manup opportunities but play in goal from Ryan Kern on point blank opportunities saved the day on many occasions. Crabs would get game to 5-3 in second half before an open empty goal would seal the game 6-3 for the 2012 Crabfeast National Title!

Offensively, several players stepped up and were able to contribute.

Leading goal scorers:
Matt Schleicher (Emmaus)-8 goals
Evan Wolf (Lower Merion)-7 goals
Grant Ament (Haverford School), Zack Drake (LaSalle), Corey Richards, Curtis Zappala (Episcopal Academy) , Drew Schantz (Malvern Prep)--4 goals each.

Leading Assists men:
Brandon Shima (Haverford School)- 8 assists
Curtis Zappala & Grant Ament--4 assists each

Overall MVP's--Charles Kelly (Malvern Prep), Drew Schantz
Championship MVP--Grant Ament
Offensive MVP's--Brandon Shima, Zack Drake, Zack Hare (Springford), Curtis Zappala
Defensive MVP's--Ryan Kern, Christian Teuber (Penn Charter), Jake Peden (Downington East), Dustin Buchanan (CB EAST), Robert Keehfus (Penn Charter)

Sunday, September 18th, 2011 Event: Walk For Hope

Please consider making a donation: Walk for Hope
Notes: 
Walk for Hope is an event Sarah Keating looks forward to each and every year.

City of Hope is an incredible organization, and Sarah knows this first hand. Years ago, her husband, Dan, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, a blood cancer that affects so many people and their families. City of Hope's research led to the development and use of a monoclonal antibody drug, which is commonly known as "Rituxan." That drug, along with a chemotherapy regimen known as CHOP, led her husband back to health and gave them all their lives back. Sarah will forever be grateful, much more grateful than I could ever put into words.

When college coaches scout high school club teams they scout the Duke's. That's why, every year our players attend major college institutions and high ranking programs and have been doing so for over a decade. Our players have attended Virginia, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Penn State, Ohio State, Georgetown, Maryland, Princeton, Cornell, Notre Dame, North Carolina and virtually every top program in the country. See our Alumni link where notably ALL 32 of 32 players in 2009 and ALL 42 of 42 players in 2010 are attending College and playing Lacrosse.

Every year Duke's has multiple High School All-Americans and All-State Players. No other Club in the tri-state area is remotely close. The Duke's program has produced over 50 High School All-Americans, 31 College All-Americans and has had over 20 players in the Pro Ranks with all of these numbers growing every year. Please see our Family link and our Pros Link detailing Player Awards since the inception of the Duke's website in 2004.

When decisions are made as to what high school players get invited to America's top college recruiting camps, such as Nike Blue Chip, they consult the Duke's coaches. However our primary mission is to recruit exceptional players who are also exceptional people and students. Being part of the Duke's is being part of a small but exceptional family of lacrosse players and student athletes.

Quite simply, if you are an elite high school freshman player, the club that will maximize your chances to play at a top college program is, and has been for more than a decade the Duke's Lacrosse Club.
