The Worthington Kilbourne High School boys lacrosse team scored early and often en route to a 17-2 win over visiting St. Charles in a Division I regional semifinal Wednesday.

Kilbourne, the top seed in Region 2, improved to 18-2 and advanced to play host to second-seeded Dublin Jerome in the regional final Saturday. Fourth-seeded St. Charles finished 10-6.

The Wolves scored three goals in the first 2 minutes, 11 seconds and led 6-0 after the first period. They stretched their lead to 12-0 by halftime and were ahead 13-0 when the Cardinals scored their first goal nearly four minutes into the third period.

"That's exactly what we wanted to do -- go out hard and go out fast -- and the kids did very well right at the beginning of the game," Kilbourne coach Mike Riffee said. "We were even-keeled the rest of the way and had a good finish. From the first whistle to the last, I thought the kids did a great job and worked our game plan to a T. It was a good victory for us."

Midfielders Drew Roper and Austin Wright each scored four goals to lead the Wolves. Attackers Conor Igoe, Pat Riffee and Cory Spencer each two goals and midfielders Will Campbell and Kyle Giannamore and attacker Matt Fischer each had one.

"We're going to make sure we do everything we can to determine what the outcome of the game is," Roper said. "Lots of people stepped up big tonight. That's how we've been all year. It's nothing new for us."

Attackers Charlie Wulf and Ryan Berg scored for St. Charles, which had lost 13-6 to the Wolves on April 3.

"They're just so hard to stop," Cardinals defender Ben Kelley said. "They move the ball so fast, and when they move the ball so quickly, it's hard to adjust on defense. That's the way they beat us."
