St. Andrew's (Boca Raton, Fla.) junior attacker Conor Whipple came one goal short of tying the national record when he scored nine goals in a 16-9 win over Benjamin School (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.) on Saturday.
The National High School Federation has two 10 goal games as the record for most goals in a game. Greg Miller from Corning East (Corning, N.Y.) in 1980 and David Puccia from Immaculate Heart Central (Watertown, N.Y.) in 1998 currently share the record. ESPNHS confirmed 10-goal games by Hoggard (Wilmington, N.C.) attacker Hunter Edens and Kettle run (Nokesville, Va.) attacker Patrick McCann last season.
St. Andrew's improved its record to 5-0 with the win. Whipple has 24 goals this season.
