Nick Anderson capped a hat trick with his 100th career goal, but it wasn't enough as Barnegat High School lost 13-8 to visiting Toms River South 13-8 in a Shore Con-ference boys lacrosse game Monday.

Anderson, a senior, reached the milestone in the fourth quarter.

"I was proud and excited," said Anderson, 18, a Barnegat resident. "Goals come when you play hard. But I wanted to get the win. Once it got to be less than 10 (to go), I started thinking about it more. The last one got it out of the way and you move on."

Barnegat's Matt Grobelny made 12 saves for the Bengals.

Toms River South's Robert Hailey scored five goals.
