Eagles honor seniors with win

Zionsville — There were no nerves for the Zionsville lacrosse seniors Wednesday night as they played their final scheduled regular season home game against Noblesville.

The Eagles dominated for four quarters on their way to an 8-2 victory.

“It is great (to get the win for the seniors),” Zionsville head coach Matt Garvey said. “Senior night is always kind of funky because there is a lot of emotions. We got a good win against a conference opponent. Right now we are sitting in first place in the conference with one game left. That is our first goal.”

Despite dominating the game from the opening face off, the Eagles didn’t get on the board until 2:16 remained in the first half when Luke Beebe scored.

Less than two minutes later, Eric Regele scored to make it 2-0 at the end of a quarter.

Matt Welch made it 3-0 eight minutes into the second period, but the Millers scored 44 seconds later and trailed just 3-1 at halftime.

The Eagles took momentum right back in the beginning of the second half.

Ben Sherman scored just 1:05 into the second half and Welch scored 65 seconds later to make it 5-1.

The Millers got within three at 5-2, but the Eagles closed out the scoring with goals from Bill Nicholas, Cameron Bender and Andrew Long to hold the Millers at bay.

Garvey said the first two goals of the second half were the biggest in the game.

“I think whoever scored the first goal in the second half — that was going to change the momentum their way,” Garvey said. “We were really happy to get two there.”
