ERMA — The Lower Cape May Regional High School boys lacrosse team used a strong first half en route to a 13-8 victory over rival Middle Township Tuesday afternoon, but not before things got interesting in the final quarter.

The Caper Tigers raced out to an 8-1 lead through two quarters and appeared well on their way to an easy victory before Middle roared back by scoring nine of the first 11 goals after halftime to get to within two at 10-8. Lower, however, finally put the game away by netting the game’s final three goals.

The win was the second straight for Lower Cape May (5-8).

Macky Bonner topped Lower Cape May in scoring with four goals and three assists. Mikey Castellano, Taj Turner and Matt Brown each added three goals.

Brett Nabb led Middle Township (5-12) with three goals and two assists. Travis McCray and Matt Frame each added two goals.
