GROSSE POINTE >> Tim Stebbins had a score to settle with Warren De La Salle.

A member of the Birmingham Detroit Country Day hockey team that lost to the Pilots on the Warren school’s march to a 2017 state championship, Stebbins scored five goals to lead the Yellow Jackets to a 13-7 victory in a Division 2 lacrosse quarterfinal match at Grosse Pointe South on Friday night.

“We beat them earlier in the season, but it was kind of a revenge game for me because we lost to them in the hockey season, so I was out for some blood here,” Stebbins, a junior attack, said.

“This was a big win for us. I think we can get better.”

Junior Jake Belanger had three goals and Quinton Sappington had two as Country Day advanced to play Forest Hills Central in a state semifinal on June 7. Brendan Dolan made four assists.

"In the past couple of weeks or captains and our seniors have done a tremendous job of getting us ready to play," Yellow Jackets coach Michael Cappelletti said. "Our season is always about the playoffs."

Country Day is 10-11 overall after its fourth tournament victory.

Country Day led 4-1 after one quarter and 6-2 at halftime for deficits from which De La Salle couldn’t recover.

“They came out quick,” De La Salle coach Matt Lorio said. “Country Day is a very skilled team. They hit us hard. We reacted, but it was a little too late.”

Dylan Pine had two goals to help the Yellow Jackets build their first-half lead.

“We seemed to be winning faceoffs, but their wing guys were taking over,” Lorio said. “With the possessions they had, they were able to wear down our defense.”

Greg Pine had three goals for De La Salle. Tyler Corless, Zach Yerian, Paul Manuszak and Simon Shaheen scored a goal apiece.

The Pilots talked in their post-game huddle about a satisfying season that included a regional championship.

“This whole season has been a journey,” Lorio said. “We’ve been on this journey for a few years. Now the foundation is built, and we have very good core of underclassmen coming up that will continue this success.

“Our competition is getting better, and we have to get better. Lacrosse is an important thing at De La Salle again.”
