With just one win in 2016 and no victories in the MIAA A Conference, the St. Mary’s lacrosse team entered 2017 with a lot to prove.
A 9-1 start in the non-league portion of their schedule was certainly noteworthy, but the 14th-ranked Saints have just begun to really impress with their 2-0 start in MIAA A Conference league play, including a 10-9 home win over No. 4 St. Paul’s School, Friday night in Annapolis.
Jack Burnett provided the game winning score in overtime for St. Mary’s.
The Saints (11-1 overall) jumped out to a 3-0 lead after one quarter and led 6-3 at the half. St. Paul’s (10-2, 1-1 MIAA A) scored the only goal of the third quarter and the Crusaders outscored the Saints, 5-3, in the third quarter to earn a place in overtime. Cole Ament tied the game with a score with just 3.3 seconds to play.
Ian Krampf had four goals and an assist to lead St. Mary’s. Tyler Bohanan and Lachlan Hertel each scored twice for the Saints and Garret Nilsen had one goal. Burnett, Alex Wicks and BJ Burlace all recorded an assist in the victory.
Logan Zimnoch led St. Paul’s with two goals and two assists. Amernt, Keegan Pearl, Brandon Tscherene, Matt Mayer, Riley Gaegar, Carson Gaegar and Andrew Caples all scored once each.
