Senior Kyle Merget scored a career-high seven goals and had two assists to lead the Highland boys lacrosse team in a 17-3 win over Goshen High School on Thursday.

The midfielder also notched his 100th career goal with 7:32 left in the fourth quarter.

“I’ve coached him since he was in sixth grade and he’s been a pleasure to have,” Highland coach Tom Schlappich said. “He’s got a very powerful shot and has good placement. He takes what he’s given and can adjust well to what the goalie and defense are doing. He’s a good finisher inside, but he’s also very good at driving to the cage or playing the two-man game.”

Chris Schlappich had three goals and four assists for the Huskies (7-2). Dylan Cuvelier added three goals, Tyler Jollie scored twice, Paul Rhodes had a goal and an assist, and Jesse Weaver scored a goal. Giorgio D’Angelo made 12 saves in the win.
