Death, taxes and Victor lacrosse in the state championship.
For the fifth straight year the Blue Devils earn a trip to the final game of the boys’ lacrosse season.

Victor opened the second half on a run, scoring three goals in 90 seconds to take a comfortable lead.
Camden Hay scored his fourth goal of the game to cap six straight from Victor and gave the Blue Devils their biggest lead at 6-2.
In the fourth quarter, John Jay went on a run of their own with three unanswered to pull within one.
With four minutes left, Jack Larue put the game on ice with a pair of goals.
Victor captures their fourth state title in the last five years.
”I think the kids took the next step today of not just being a good team but establishing ourselves as a problem that can be a contender year after year. I’m just so proud of these guys,” said Jim Andre

This was incredible,” said head coach Mike Torrelli.”If you had asked me in March would we be here, my answer would be no. I didn’t think so. We didn’t have a lot of seniors, 24 juniors, some sophomores. I didn’t know where was our leadership going to come from, so I’m proud of our kids they battled and played for 48 minutes which was our goal. Win, lose or draw we wanted to come and play as hard as we could and I’m very excited for what they did.”
