Grosse Pointe South boys' lacrosse team made quick work of city rival University Liggett last weekend, winning 16-5 on its home turf.

"We have been working on diversifying our offense and we worked on that today with a lot of success," South head coach Don Wolford said. "We needed to work on some zone looks, especially after playing Romeo."

"In theory, we wanted to lock out (Andrew) Wright, but they read it and responded to it with a big first quarter," Liggett head coach Bill Brusilow said. "We got back to basics and the guys played pretty well."

The Blue Devils jumped out to an 8-0 lead over the Knights as Andrew Hyde scored three goals, and Mac Carroll had two. Andrew Wright, Jack Denison and Chase Urbach also scored.

T.J. Stevenson scored for the Knights with less than a minute left in the stanza to get them on the board.

Neither squad tallied in the second quarter and the Blue Devils used an 8-4 second half to win.

For the Knights, James Jurcak scored three of the four goals and Stevenson had the fourth.

For the Blue Devils, Wright had three second-half goals, while Nikolas Minanov scored two. John Whitney, Jerry Coyle and Hyde each tallied one goal.

Earlier in the week, South won a Macomb Area Conference Red Division game, 8-4 over Romeo.

Grosse Pointe South improved to 5-0 in the MAC Red Division and 7-3 overall; Liggett dropped to 3-2 overall.
