BETHESDA — National powers and conference rivals Bullis Bulldogs and Landon Bears met on the gridiron for varsity boys lacrosse Friday at Bordley Stadium at Triplett Field but when the dust settled the Bears emerged with a 10-5 victory over the Bulldogs.
Landon, who earned their third consecutive win, jumped out to a 7-2 halftime lead and never looked back.
The Bears were led by Joey Epstein and John Geppert, who combined for eight goals. Epstein, an Under Armour All-American, finished with five goals and three assists while Geppert added three goals and an assist.
Zach Johnson and Graham Hertzberg also scored goals for Landon and Garrett Kurtz contributed an assist in the winning effort.
“This is a good win to give us confidence,” said Espstein, a Johns Hopkins recruit. “We really believe we should win this league or we can win this league.”
