For the first time during his 20-year tenure as coach of the Upper Arlington High School boys lacrosse team, Ted Wolford will not be on the sidelines for the Division I state championship game.

Worthington Kilbourne outscored the Golden Bears 4-1 in the fourth quarter to post a 10-4 victory over host UA in a regional final on May 28.

"We watched lots of film all week and we knew exactly what was coming," said Kilbourne midfielder Charlie Bassani, who scored three goals as the Wolves avenged an 11-9 loss to the Bears on May 3. "We knew what to expect and drew up some plays to beat it."

"We knew we had to wear them down," Wolves coach Drew May said. "They have an excellent defense and an excellent goalie. We had to play our game. If you don't play a full 48 minutes of lacrosse, you can't expect to beat a team like Upper Arlington."

Ryan Pritchett also scored three goals and James Meager scored two to lead the Wolves' offense and goalkeeper Alex Wylly had 11 saves. For UA, Adam Narwicz scored two goals, Luke Treece had a goal and an assist and Tyler Pfister had a goal.

Kilbourne improved to 16-5 and advanced to play Cincinnati Moeller or Cincinnati St. Xavier in a state semifinal June 1 in Cincinnati.

The six-goal differential was UA's worst margin of defeat since losing to Dublin Scioto 12-6 in the 2003 state championship. The Bears, who finished 16-2, played solid man-down defense, allowing only one goal in nine attempts.

"They didn't do a lot of damage in the man-up situations," Wolford said. "However, any time you have less players on the field than they do, it makes it hard. You want to get into a flow and get the guys moving, but the penalties stopped all of the momentum. Tonight was their night. We made enough errors and I don't think I did a good enough job preparing the kids."
