He might maneuver inside off the wing. He might crease roll from behind the cage and finish a one-timer. He might dodge two defenders and make his way to the goal.
There’s no telling.
About the only thing one can safely predict in Dillon Rispoli’s game is that the Our Lady of Lourdes boys lacrosse star will find some way to score. A lot.
Using his deep repertoire of moves and shots, the attack scored a career-high nine goals and dished three assists on Thursday, leading the host Warriors in a 20-5 win over Pawling High School.
“My teammates were finding me with good passes and I was able to finish,” Rispoli said. “My teammate Ty (Arnone) and I each had scored eight goals before. So it was nice to beat that.”
Rispoli topped the mark he had set only a few days ago. He scored eight goals in a 14-3 win over Ossining on Saturday. He has racked up 22 points in the last two games.
“He’s very quick and has a great ability to throw different fakes and come at different angles,” Lourdes coach Chris Malet said. “He doesn’t have one go-to, so it’s not like (opponents) can watch tape and plan for one move. That’s what makes him a difficult matchup.”
The Warriors’ offensive firepower makes this team a tough matchup.
Arnone added six goals, and the senior notched his 100th career point during the game.
Joe Scaglione had two goals and three assists and midfielder Billy Wagner had four assists for Lourdes (4-1). Evan Mullaly, Liam Norman and Jimmy Daly each scored a goal. Luke Rispoli, Trevor Arnone, John Aldrich, Nick Belmonte, Corey Mullaly and Billy Riccardi each had an assist.
Kyle Strack and Nick Santacroce anchored the defense and Matt Sayegh made eight saves.
