Junior attackman hits 100-goal mark for career; leads league is scoring for second year
Milestones are many in the high school sports world, and Malden High’s Chad Robertson just hit a big one in a recent win over Revere. On Thursday, Malden’s Robertson, a third-year varsity lacrosse player and a Tornado junior, tallied 6 of 7 goals for Malden in a comeback, 7-4 Greater Boston League victory over Revere. With his second goal of the afternoon at Pine Banks Park in Malden, Robertson hit the magical number of 100 for his career.
Robertson has now tallied 104 goals for his career and is now in sight of the school’s All-Time Scoring record. That mark is now held by former Golden Tornados standout Zach Rufo, who finished a four-year All-Star career with 110 goals. Leading the Greater Boston League with over 30 goals, or about 4-5 goals per game, Robertson is expected to shatter that mark soon.
“It’s a bigtime personal milestone to score 100 goals in high school lacrosse and we are all very happy and proud for Chad,” said Malden High Head Coach Jon Copithorne. “He is one of our leaders and works very hard at his game.”
“Congratulations to Chad on a major accomplishment,” said Malden Public Schools Director of Athletics Charlie Conefrey. “He is a great student and tremendous athlete and deserves a lot of credit for such an impressive achievement.”
