Darien trio play in Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic

Darien High’s senior trio of Tony Britton, Case Matheis and Henry West nearly lead the North team to victory in the Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic at Towson University’s Unitas Stadium in Md. on Saturday.
West finished with a goal and an assist while Matheis had an asisst in the North’s 12-11 loss to the South. Britton, a defender, had four groundballs and was a starter along with Matheis.
Also coming off the bench for the North team was Greenwich’s Ian Ardrey, a Harvard-bound attack from Deerfield Academy who notched his team’s first goal of the night with the South up 2-0.
West, who is headed for Cornell, cut into the South lead with an unassisted tally at the 6:50 mark of the second quarter. Matheis, who will play at Duke, assisted Devin Dwyer (Garden City) in the third quarter, trimming the South lead to 10-8. West found Mikey Morris (Oakville, ON) to open the fourth quarter scoring and pull the North within 11-9.
The South team, which never trailed, was lead by MVP Gordie Koerber (Baltimore). The Denver-bound Gilman graduate scored three goals on three shots.
