Brophy wins state lacrosse club championship

Brophy took the title of state lacrosse club team champions over Desert Vista Friday night. The Broncos managed to hold on and defeat the Thunder 6-5 in a defensive battle.

Brophy took an early 2-0 lead when halfway through the 2nd quarter, Stephen Votto finally put Desert Vista on the board.

It looked like the teams would be tied at 2-2 going into the half, but the Bronco’s Landon Gagner scored the go ahead goal in the closing minute of the first half.

The defensive battle would continue into the second half. But two goals in the 3rd quarter by Ben Cummings and Gagner would put Brophy ahead for good.
