Century stunned Westminster 13-6 on Monday, ending the Owls’ long winning streak in boys lacrosse at 40 games. The streak was longest public-school winning streak in Maryland history.
“A lot of guys stepped up,” Century head coach Jimmy Benson said. “[Goalie] Nate Jones had his best game in his varsity career. Our defense held up to what we wanted to do. We dominated faceoffs, that was big for us.”
Connor Zonbro had four goals to lead all Century scorers, while Jackson Zimmer had a goal and four assists. Goalkeeper Nate Jones starred in goal for the Knights stopping 13 shots, including several late shots to help preserve the lead. The Knights dominated the faceoff circle with a 13-5 advantage.
It was a big victory for the Knights program and Benson pointed to his team’s practice making it all possible.
“We have been practicing really well, taking advantage of each practice. We have been building up the team atmosphere,” he said.
