PHOTO BY MARK POETKER OWINGS MILLS — Despite the best efforts of the Churchill Bulldogs (19-2) in a tight, back-and-forth game, it was not enough to stand in the way of a stunning comeback by the Severna Park Falcons (21-0) in the game’s final moments at Stevenson University’s Mustang Stadium on May 25. Instead, the Falcons earned a second straight 4A boys lacrosse state title, with the final score 7-6.

“Fantastic game,” said Bulldogs head coach Jeff Fritz. “Couldn’t ask anything more from a state championship. The game went back and forth but unfortunately we couldn’t make enough plays to come out on the victor’s side. But I couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve accomplished this year and everything our men have done for us. So, we’re very proud.”

Falcons head coach Dave Earl said, “…hats off to Churchill. What a really good team. Extremely well coached. Great game plan against us…really took advantage of their opportunities. Their game plan — to slow it down — really took us out of our run-and-gun style. I thought Jeff, their team, did a great job.”

After Saturday’s 4A regional semifinals game against Churchill, the younger Zichelli brothers have their chance to earn a state championship and the bragging rights that come with it.

The Falcons stamped their ticket for the tenth lacrosse state championship appearance in school history with a 10-5 victory against the Bulldogs at Gaithersburg High School’s John Harvill Stadium.
