During the Dublin Jerome High School boys lacrosse team's 16-2 win over Whitehouse Anthony Wayne in the first round of the Division I Northwest Region tournament May 25, the last name Barco could be found in the scoring column five times.

During the Dublin Jerome High School boys lacrosse team's 16-2 win over Whitehouse Anthony Wayne in the first round of the Division I Northwest Region tournament May 25, the last name Barco could be found in the scoring column five times.

The fact it was three brothers who scored in the same game made it memorable for the Celtics and the Barco family.

Senior attacker Tanner Barco and freshman attacker Connor Barco each had two goals while junior close defender Spencer Barco had one.

The same situation could occur next year if Hunter Barco, an eighth-grade lacrosse player at Grizzell Middle School, ends up on the Jerome boys team.

Carter Barco, who is in fifth grade, is the youngest of the five lacrosse-playing brothers.

"The thing is that it would be different if two of us scored, but Connor is only a freshman and Spencer plays defense," Tanner said. "That was definitely something cool. (Lacrosse) is just like a family thing now."

Attacker Mikey Bano led Jerome with three goals against Anthony Wayne.

The Celtics improved to 13-6 entering their game May 29 against visiting Sylvania Southview, with the winner playing Olentangy or Olentangy Orange in a regional final Saturday, June 1, at a time to be determined.

The regional champion plays Hudson, Solon, Cleveland St. Ignatius or Massillon Jackson in a state semifinal Wednesday, June 5, at a site to be announced.

The state final is 5 p.m. Saturday, June 8, at Upper Arlington.

If Jerome plays Olentangy for the regional title, it would be a rematch of a game the Celtics won 13-5 on April 5.

Olentangy was 17-1 before playing Orange on May 29.

Jerome beat Orange 19-2 on April 1.

"Olentangy's only loss was to us, but the game was closer than the final score would indicate," coach A.J. Auld said. "They have a good defense."

Coffman boys fall inOT to Cardinals

The Coffman boys team led 7-4 entering the fourth quarter of its Division I Central Region first-round game May 25 at Thomas Worthington.

Similarly to the regular-season matchup between the teams, however, the Shamrocks ended up on the losing end of an overtime game.

Coffman, which lost to Thomas 7-6 on April 24, gave up three goals in the fourth quarter and the winning goal just before the end of the first overtime and lost the rematch 8-7.

The Shamrocks finished 9-10.

"Our kids played hard, but it was a tough one," coach Mark Forsythe said. "They won a lot of faceoffs at the end and we just kind of turned the ball over too much. Our defense just couldn't stop them. We held them to three goals for 44 minutes. I feel horrible for our kids."

Senior Brent Whitehead, who will play for Wittenberg University, had two goals.

Whitehead (midfielder) was part of an 11-member senior class that also included Michael Turbitt (goalkeeper), Patrick Ruz (defender), Erik Schnese (midfielder), Mark Guzik (defender) and Gunner Gruehl (midfielder).

Coffman beat Scioto 9-8 in overtime May 8 and lost to Jerome 13-7 on May 15 to finish second in the Emerald Cup series between the programs.

The Shamrocks were fifth (2-4) in the OCC-Buckeye Division behind Upper Arlington (6-0), Worthington Kilbourne (5-1), Jerome (4-2) and Thomas (3-3) and ahead of Hilliard Davidson (1-5) and Scioto (0-6).

"Our senior class is what high school sports is all about," Forsythe said. "We know we've got some players coming back and we feel really strong about it."

Scioto boys losein play-in round

The Scioto boys team's season ended May 22 with a 14-6 loss at Anthony Wayne in the play-in round of the Division I Northwest Region tournament.

The Irish finished 1-17, with their only win coming April 12, 10-7 over visiting Columbus Academy.

However, Scioto took Coffman to overtime and lost to Westerville South 8-7 on May 20 to close the regular season.

The only seniors were Afzi Ahmed (goalkeeper), Jeremy Love (midfielder), Ric Sarpong (midfielder) and Shawn Snow (midfielder).

Juniors Jackson Heigel (midfielder), Ryan Roll (attacker) and Graham Smith (attacker) and freshman Nate Mielke (attacker) should be among the top returnees.

Coffman girlsto lose seven seniors

The Coffman girls team loses seven seniors after going 11-8 overall and reaching a Division I South/Central Region semifinal.

The Shamrocks opened the postseason by beating Hilliard Bradley 15-12 on May 14 and Thomas 13-12 the next day before falling to Cincinnati Mount Notre Dame 13-12 on May 20.

The top seniors were attackers Brianna Turner, Lexi Minnick, Steffi Zepp and Amanda Freutel and defender Sara Cassidy.

"These girls fought back all season," coach Michael Murphy said. "We've got a phenomenal junior class and a phenomenal sophomore class. We beat Thomas Worthington, and that was sort of breaking through the glass ceiling. That was a huge step for our team and program."

Turner had 52 goals and 15 assists and Minnick had 37 goals and eight assists.

Junior attacker Kelly Murphy had 42 goals and 19 assists and junior attacker Kylie Kayser had 38 goals and 16 assists. Sophomore midfielder Riley Steiner led in draw controls (44) and caused turnovers (24). Junior defender Emma Workman was second in draw controls (31) and led in groundballs (39).

Coffman finished fifth (1-4) in the OCC-Buckeye behind UA (5-0), New Albany (4-1), Kilbourne (3-2) and Thomas (2-3) and ahead of Darby (0-5).
