Lacrosse Packs a Punch Against Wolves, 7-2
In beautiful spring weather and in front of a large crowd, junior Max Murret had a goal and three assists to help the Blue Jay lacrosse team stifle St. Paul’s, 7-2. The match took place on Saturday, March 21, on Jesuit’s Will Clark Field.
It was probably one of our best games of the year,” said head coach Steve Krobert ’05.
Junior David Zazulak and sophomore Briggs Lucia added two goals apiece. Sophomore Parker Simoneaux and senior Garrett Perez, who lead the team with five ground balls, scored the other Blue Jay goals.
Three Jays, all defenders, finished with a pair of takeaways: senior Tanner Burgess, junior Sammy Martin, and senior Paul Stapp, who also recorded an assist.
Junior Rob Hinyub tallied 8 saves in front of the cage.
The Blue Jays were without the services of team-leading attacker Cameron Guernsey, who was injured in Birmingham a week earlier.
The victory gives Jesuit a 4-0 record against in-state opponents.
Krobert offered a special thank you to Tommy Cvitanovich, a lacrosse parent and owner of Drago’s, for donating concessions, including delicious charbroiled oysters, for Saturday’s games against the Wolves.
No one would be surprised to see Jesuit and St. Paul’s meet in the state championship game, as they’ve done the last three years. Jesuit won the crown in 2012, 2013, and 2014.
Up next is a Monday, March 23 contest at St. Martin’s.
