The Minooka boys lacrosse team scored a whopping 16 goals in a huge win over Brother Rice. 

Minooka improved their overall record to 2-2 as they competed against against the Crusaders with a 16-2 win on March 26.

 “This was the biggest goal differential for a Minooka lacrosse win since 2015,” head coach Kyle Holmes said. 

Everyone on the team played well, but there were three boys who added to a tremendous amount of goals and assists. 

“The top athletes for this game were Sean Williamson (6 goals), Brody Luzbetak (4 goals), and Ryan Svehla (7 assists),” Holmes said. 

Another factor that added a positive impact on this game was the team showing teamwork. 

“Encouragement goes a long way and on our team. Helping each other out, especially our captains they have been amazing at that. But I am glad we are able to encourage each other and become a family,” Luzbetak said. 

With a 16-2 final, there were a lot of highlights. 

“The highlight of the game for me was definitely my first goal, it set the tone for me personally,” Williamson said. 

As the game progressed, the team enjoyed every second of the game. 

“After the first half, we went into the locker room and talked each other up,” Svehla said. “We started to focus on having fun while also focusing on the game itself and I think it proved to be better for all of us.” 

All in all, this game has proved to be a growing block for the team. They are ready for the next game and becoming better than ever before. 

“We intend to continue our research/scouting on the teams we play in future games, continue to adjust our game plan to adapt to our player’s gameplay, and continue our hard work towards bettering our program as a whole,” Holmes said.
