Boise Invitational: Judge & JD Win, Lone Peak & Bingham Lose Close Games

Bingham v. Centennial

The second day of the Boise Invitational once again displayed great lacrosse with four Utah teams taking part of the festivities.
Judge played Bishop Kelly (ID) in a great contest and ultimately bested the Knights, 8-6. Juan Diego played Granada (CA) and won big, beating the Matadors 19-8. Alec Meyer had 6 goals and 3 assists in the win for the Soaring Eagle.
The next two games were played on adjacent fields with Bingham taking on Centennial (NV) and Lone Peak facing Faith Lutheran (NV).
Bingham had a see-saw first quarter with Centennial, taking a 3-2 lead into the second quarter. Centennial went on a five-goal run in the second quarter, making the score 7-3 with 2:11 left in the first half. Bingham answered with 25 seconds left when Jordan Brough found the back of the net, making the halftime score 7-4 for the Bulldogs.

Bingham scored first in the third quarter to bring the game within two goals, but Centennial scored two goals to regain a four goal lead heading into the fourth quarter. Bingham and Centennial each traded two goals to begin the quarter. Bingham was resilient and scored at the 7:06 mark when Josh Croall took the ball from the right sideline and ran through and around three defenders and bounced it into the back of the net. Bingham would score two minutes later when Joe Lambert intercepted a pass from a Centennial defender to the goalie, ran to X and fed Kason Eggers who buried the ball in the back of the empty net. Brough would bring the Miners within one goal at the 4:34 mark when Bingham Goalie Scott Bronson, who had 15 saves in the game, cleared the ball to midfield but the pass was deflected into the Bingham offensive half where Steven Mottola scooped it up and found Brough wide open on the crease who slotted it low for the goal. Two Miners were then penalized and Centennial capitalized, giving them a 12-10 lead that would end of being the final score after the Bulldogs were able to win the face-off and kill the clock.
“I thought coming out after a five hour car ride and a postponed game, we were well prepared, focused and brought some physical play with it,” said Bingham Head Coach Marshall Kay. “The reason we travel is to unite as a team and play quality opponents.”
On an adjacent field, Lone Peak squared off against the Faith Lutheran Crusaders from Las Vegas. The two teams went back and forth throughout the whole game, eventually ending in an 11 tie, sending the game to overtime. Faith Lutheran won the face-off and took a timeout. The Crusaders came out and were unable to score off a decent shot and Lone Peak was able to clear and call a timeout themselves. Lone Peak Midfielder Tanner Sheide took a shot that was just wide. The Knights backed it up and found Josh Stout on the restart who placed a perfect shot, but the goalie was able to make a save. Faith Lutheran cleared the ball, worked it around and found Grant Gravitt who took it right, spun back to the left towards the middle of the field and shot a low bounce shot for the win. Tanner Sheide led the Knights with 5 goals and 2 assists.
