Severna Park Boys Lacrosse Begins Quest For Sixth Straight State Championship


The Falcons’ quest to continue their dynasty has gotten off to a roaring start, as they started 6-0 after beating Southern on the road 19-6 on April 8. So far, the team’s closest game was an 11-7 win over Springside Chestnut Hill Academy, of Pennsylvania, on April 6.

Head coach Dave Earl has returned to coach the team after a season away, during which time assistant coach Travis Loving took over and led the team to their fifth state championship. Earl is glad to see the team doing so well and not having to deal with any issues from the change in coaching.

“We are excited to be 6-0 at this point in the season,” he said. “We have been working on the little things necessary to be successful and are getting better every day.”

The Falcons’ offense has been rolling thus far, scoring 97 goals in those six games, with five of the games having double-digit margins of victory. They have been led by senior attackers Joaquin Villgomez and Nolan Zborai, with 23 and 21 goals respectively. Mark Durling, Jack Fish and Camden Webb have won over 65 percent of all faceoffs for the Falcons while junior goalie Ashby Shepherd has 34 saves.

As the season progresses, Earl’s only expectation for his players is that they “give 100 percent at every practice, game, in the classroom and in the community.”
