Trevor Patschorke had already scored five goals and his Severna Park boys lacrosse team led Mount Hebron 9-0 early in the second quarter of their March 28 matchup when he made a play that won’t show up on any highlight reel.

The Falcons were churning through an offensive set, pass after pass, whipping the ball around the box. A shot was taken from 10 yards out and took a deflection upon its release, ricocheting slowly off toward the end line. Anticipating the play, Patschorke broke into a dead sprint.

He was three steps behind Mount Hebron’s goalie, a defenseman and one of his own men when he started, but he beat all of them to the end line to secure possession for Severna Park.

Severna Park resumed its possession, which ended when Patschorke assisted Chase Cope for a goal and a 10-0 Falcon lead.

“It’s those kinds of things that don’t show up in the scorebook that really tell you about Trevor,” said Severna Park coach Dave Earl.

Patschorke finished the game, a 17-1 Severna Park win, with seven goals. Four days earlier, the senior UMBC-commit scored 10 goals in a 16-9 win over Northeast. He had three of his team’s eight goals in an 8-6 win over Hereford on March 21 and another hat trick in a 21-0 shellacking of Chesapeake on March 31, giving him 23 goals in his first four games this season.

Earl had an illustrative story from Patschorke’s 10-goal outburst in the win over the Eagles.

“In the Northeast game on Friday night, he scores 10 goals,” said Earl. “We’re in the corner after and everybody’s packing up, and I look at Trevor and he’s carrying all the team gear. That’s the kind of guy he is. He’s just a quality individual, a great teammate, great captain for us, great role model. It’s an honor to coach him.”

Patschorke himself, who was an integral part of Severna Park’s state championship lacrosse team as a junior last season, credits his teammates for his early-season scoring surge.

“I think it’s definitely the talent I’m surrounded by,” said Patschorke. “Across the field, we have some of the top players in Maryland, and they always set me up for easy shots.”

Earl said Patschorke’s speed, finishing ability and relentless hustle make him difficult for defenses to deal with.

“He’s just so fast, and he has an amazingly quick release on his shot,” said Earl. “The goalie can’t get set, and he just doesn’t see it coming. And he rides like no other attackman I’ve ever seen, tenacious, ground balls, everything.”

Perhaps no one summed up Patschorke better than teammate Drew Betch, who channeled his inner Captain Obvious while high-fiving Patschorke after a goal against Mount Hebron, booming out his praise with stentorian teenage confidence.

“Trevor,” yelled Betch. “You are very good at what you do.”
