When Bishop Guertin went south to Boston College High School on Saturday, it was an opportunity for New England lacrosse teams to watch one of the most elite matchups they could see in the region.
Brian Cameron, the top attackman for Guertin, is headed to North Carolina in the fall. He’ll be joined by BC High defenseman Will Bowen, who had the assignment to guard his future teammate.
The way Bowen and the Eagles defended Cameron varied during the game. In the end, Cameron didn’t find the scoreboard, but did have multiple assists as the Cardinals won, 12-9 to remain undefeated.
Going in, the focus was on shutting down Brian, which, the Eagles did for the most part. It was the rest of the offense that exploited what might be the best defense in the region.
