The battle to make the MIAA playoffs in all three divisions heads into the homestretch as the calendar is about to turn to May.


In the A Conference, last week’s MIAA Game of the Week was a thriller and led to a tie atop the standings as Boys’ Latin (6-1) suffered its’ first league defeat of the season – a 12-10 defeat to McDonogh.


That loss dropped the Lakers into a first-place tie with Calvert Hall (6-1). The Cardinals (6-1) won twice on the road last week, rallying to beat Gilman (5-2) 7-6 in overtime – thanks to a game-winning goal by Cody Collier – and beating St. Paul’s (3-4) 11-8 behind two goals each by four different players. The Lakers hold the head-to-head edge with the Hall, as Boys’ Latin beat the Cardinals 11-10 in overtime back on April 5. 


The Game of the Week victory meant that the Eagles (6-2) stayed one game in the loss column behind the co-leaders with the victory. McDonogh was paced by Luke Miller, who scored three goals and added an assist, Brendan Millon, who added two goals and two assists, and Bogue Hahn, who had three goals – including an empty-net tally in the final moments that iced the victory.


Also last Tuesday, St. Mary’s held off Mount St. Joseph 11-10, Loyola beat John Carroll 23-6, Severn picked up a 16-10 road victory at St. Paul’s. This past Friday, McDonogh beat Mount St. Joseph 13-4, Spalding doubled up Severn 14-7, Gilman beat Loyola 13-10 and St. Mary’s went on the road and won at John Carroll 13-10.


Gilman and Archbishop Spalding (5-2) currently are tied for fourth in the standings, while St. Paul’s and Loyola (3-4) are tied for the sixth and final playoff spot. Severn (2-5) is right behind the Crusaders and Dons.


The Kelly Benefits MIAA Game of the Week Tuesday sees MIAA A co-leader Calvert Hall host Mount St. Joseph (1-6) at 4 pm, livestreamed on MIAAChampionships.com, Blackbyrd Events YouTube channel, ForTheFan Network, Lacrosse TV and WBAL-TV Very Local app.


Also Tuesday, Gilman travels to Boys’ Latin, Loyola hosts Severn (2-5), McDonogh will be at John Carroll (1-7) and St. Paul’s is at Archbishop Spalding.


Friday, Calvert Hall hosts Spalding, Mount St. Joseph is at John Carroll, Gilman travels to St. Mary’s (2-6) and Loyola hosts St. Paul’s. Saturday, Boys’ Latin hosts Severn.


Over in the B Conference, Saints Peter & Paul (6-0) handed Archbishop Curley (5-1) its first league loss with a 9-6 victory over the Friars last Tuesday. The Saints also beat St. Vincent Pallotti (3-3) 16-10 on Friday to remain the only unbeaten team in the B, while Pallotti holds the solo third-place spot.


The current battle for the fourth and final place in the B playoffs is between Gerstell (2-4), Indian Creek (1-5) and Park (1-5).
Tuesday, Saints Peter & Paul hosts Gerstell, Curley travels to Park and Indian Creek is at Pallotti. Friday, Curley hosts Pallotti, Saints Peter & Paul go to Park and Indian Creek hosts Gerstell.


Last week, St. Vincent Pallotti beat Gerstell 11-9 on Tuesday, Indian Creek held off Park 10-9 on Wednesday and Gerstell beat Park 10-9 on Friday in conference action.


In the C Conference, St. John’s Catholic Prep (7-0) won twice last week to continue to remain the only unbeaten team in the league. The Vikings defeated Friends (3-3) 16-5 and Mount Carmel 26-2 (0-6) to hold first place.


Concordia Prep (7-1) beat Key (3-3) 18-4 last Tuesday to stay in second place. The Saints have one league game remaining – a battle for second with Glenelg Country (5-2) on Tuesday afternoon. The Dragons are one game behind Concordia in the loss column after beating Chapelgate Christian (1-5) 15-4 last Friday.


Annapolis Area Christian (4-2) is fourth, while Friends and Key are tied for fifth. Beth Tifloh (3-6) and Chapelgate Christian trail Friends and Key for the final playoff spots.


Tuesday, Glenelg Country hosts Concordia Prep in a game with huge implications in the C standings, and Annapolis Area Christian hosts Chapelgate Christian. Wednesday, Friends visits Christo Rey (0-5), and Key is at Mount Carmel. Friday, Mount Carmel visits Friends.
