St. Martin’s No Match for High-Flyin’ Lacrosse Jays
Seniors Josh Cvitanovich and Dominic Sunseri combined for seven goals as the Jesuit lacrosse team walloped the St. Martin’s Saints, 17-1. The district game took place on Tuesday, March 8, at Tony Porter Field on the St. Martin’s campus in Metairie.
The Jays led 13-1 at the half, allowing head coach Steve Krobert ’05 and his assistants to empty the bench and play keep away in the final two quarters. Cvitanovich had four goals. Sunseri had three. Juniors Daniel Leithman and Bennett Faust and sophomore Aiden Roberts had two goals apiece. Others finding the back of the net were seniors Thomas Cassagne, Kent Flower, and Kyle Westholz, along with junior Michael Smart.
“St. Martin’s is a developing program so I wasn’t surprised to see us control the game,” said Krobert. “I was very pleased that we remained focused against a less experienced opponent and that our coaches were able to get our younger players the game time they deserve.”
Junior Jeremy Hamilton led the team in assists with four. Faust, the team’s face-off specialist, scooped up nine ground balls. The Jays won 17 of 22 face-offs.
Junior goalie Grants Stevens saved two shots. The Blue Jay defense limited the Saints to just six shots all game.
Jesuit’s district record is 2-0. The Blue Jays edged Brother Martin, 9-7, on Feb. 27.
The Jays return to district action on Saturday, March 12, when they’ll travel to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to face the Ocean Springs Greyhounds. Game time is 1 p.m.
