HS Lax: Hilton Head Boys Lose First-Round Playoff Match

Hilton Head High’s boys saw their season come to an end with an 18-7 home loss to Oceanside Collegiate in the first round of the Class 4A playoffs Tuesday.

Whit Molloy scored three goals, Max Boyer had two goals and an assist, and Will Frith and Reed Parker each added a goal for the Seahawks, who trailed 6-4 at halftime before the Landsharks pulled away.

“Tonight was a tough one,” Seahawks coach Will Callegari said. “We had a good plan coming into things tonight, and for a half we were right where we wanted to be. But in the second half, they just had a few more horses. We made some mistakes, missed some opportunities, and unfortunately they did not.”

Seniors Chris Valentino (13 saves) and Colin Courtney (seven ground balls, one takeaway) anchored the defense in their final high school contest, and sophomore Nick Magnin added four ground balls and two takeaways. Hilton Head High finished with a 9-5 record.

“We are a young team, and we are only going to improve going into next year,” Callegari said. “We have a few big holes to fill, but I am confident guys are going to step up and rise to fill those spots. For as young as we were, I think our boys did a great job all year, and I cannot wait to see them in action next season. The staff and I will take a few days off and begin preparing for next year’s campaign.”
