The Jesuit lacrosse team needed two overtimes to beat rival St. Paul's, 6-5, on Saturday, Jan. 24.

Senior Billy McMahon advances the ball against St. Paul’s in Covington on Saturday, Jan. 24. The Blue Jays won the exhibition match, 6-5.

Senior Cameron Guernsey, who led his team with five assists against Lafayette a week earlier, scored the most important goal against St. Paul’s on Saturday, January 24. Guernsey’s goal in double overtime gave the the Blue Jays a 6-5 win over the Wolves in a “friendly” at Hunter Stadium in Covington.

Guernsey, who is just as comfortable putting it into the net as he is dishing it off to his teammates, finished with three goals.

The exhibition game, which doesn’t count toward team records, was scheduled when directors of the Allstate Sugar Bowl Lacrosse Classic cancelled the weekend tournament due to unplayable fields in Lafreniere Park.

Junior Rob Hinyub and senior Eric Wright split time in goal. 

The Blue Jays are officially 1-0 after trouncing Lafayette, 16-2, on Saturday, Jan. 17.

Jesuit won state championships in 2012, 2013, and 2014, by beating St. Paul’s in the finals. 

The Blue Jays will be in Texas on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 to compete in a tournament hosted by Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas.
