Trojans Stop Longhorns "Back to Back" Bid As Lassiter Defeats Lambert 10-5 for GHSA 6A-7A
Saturday night, the Lambert Longhorns faced the Lassiter Trojans in the Georgia High School Association Boys Lacrosse 6A-7A State Championship Game. A win for the Longhorns would make them back to back champions and would give them their fourth title in school history but the Trojans would jump out to an early 3-0 lead in effort to block the Longhorns bid for back to back titles.
Trailing by three with :10 left in the first quarter, the Longhorns would finally get on the board after a goal by #14 Jr. Bradley Wehman to make it a 4-1 game in favor of the Trojans. In the second quarter, the back to back goals by #9 Jr. Justin Edwards and #21 Sr. Nolan Moon would lift Lassiter to a 5-1 lead.
Lambert would answer back with a goal by #25 Sr. Alex Walker to make it a 5-2 game but the Trojans would be the ones to end the half on a high note after #2 Jr. Colvin Prosser would score his second goal of the game and Lassiter would hold a 6-2 lead at the half.
In the second half, the Trojans would find themselves up 9-4 with 2:58 to go in the third quarter after another Moon goal. After the Longhorns would make it a 9-5 game with :35 to go in the third quarter, Lassiter would get another goal from Prosser with 5:17 to go in the fourth quarter and the Trojans would go up 10-5 and win the game by that final score knocking off the defending champions and taking the 2017 GHSA 6A-7A Boys Lacrosse State Title. The win for Lassiter would mark their second lacrosse title in school history and their first since 2006.
