NORTON SHORES – The Mona Shores boys lacrosse team posted their fifth come-from-behind victory at the annual Lax-Shore Challenge on Saturday.

The Sailors used a late-game push to take down Spring Lake, 10-9.

“It was another exciting matchup that did not disappoint,” Coach Murle Greer said. 

Despite the Sailors jumping ahead early with a score of 6-2, the Lakers fought to keep it close and the match was tied heading into the final quarter.

The Lakers turned up the heat and managed to pull ahead 9-7 with time running down.

The Sailors converted some late turnovers into big plays that allowed them to fire off three goals in two minutes and steal the victory.

“We keep finding ways to win close games against great teams,” said Greer. “It’s fun and exciting but also dangerous and exhausting. Eventually, it’s going to catch up with us and we have to find a way to put a complete game together.” 

Jake Nanna netted a pair of goals including the game-winner off of an extra man opportunity with 5 seconds to play.

Brayton Conrad added two goals and five ground balls while Luke Beilhartz scored a single goal. Andrew Baker forced three turnovers and had three ground balls.

“We are happy with the results and extremely proud of our resiliency and inability to quit or accept defeat,” said Greer.

Eighth-ranked Mona Shores (12-1, 9-0) will host Jenison on Friday.
