GAITHERSBURG—In a stunning sudden death upset, the Magruder Colonels varsity boys lacrosse team (8-7) scored a power play goal at the 1:20 mark of OT by senior attacker Jimmy Hasemann (5 goals) to seal a 2017 MPSSAA 3A/4A playoffs victory over the Northwest Jaguars (12-4), 10-9.
Hasemann explained the goal, saying, “We were a man up. So, we broke off from our regular set. We were going to run a man from X. We were just looking for feeds. We had a lot of cutters. I just cut down and it was there. He fed me…It was great.”
Scoring six goals during the game, Hasemann was the key player for this victorious Colonels squad.
Colonels head coach Greg Lyons said of Hasemann, “More of what we expect from him all year. A heck of a leader. A heck of a guy. Just as much as his on-field play, his off-field enthusiasm, always staying positive, keeping the guys into it. That’s something the guys always expect from him.”
Hasemann was overjoyed with the win, saying, “It feels great. It was back and forth the entire time. Finally, coming out with the ‘W’, amazing feeling. It was great.”
