CARY, N.C. – Marvin Ridge (14-7) scored early and often to race past Carrboro 16-3 in the 1A/2A/3A Men’s Lacrosse Championship Game at WakeMed Soccer Stadium in Cary, winning the school’s first Men’s Lacrosse title in three trips to the state finals.
Cam Renner was hot early as he put the Mavericks on the board just two minutes into the contest, and would add three more goals in the first quarter to lift Marvin Ridge past Carrboro. Renner finished the game with five goals and four assists on the night as he was named the game’s most valuable player.
Marvin Ridge scored the game’s first 11 goals, and led 11-0 at halftime. Carrboro (15-2) got on the board in the third period right out of halftime scoring a goal on a man advantage in the opening minute of the quarter when Logan Marro broke the ice for the Jaguars. He would add one more goal on the night, finishing with two of the Jaguars three markers on the night. Chad Osborne had the other goal for Carrboro.
The Mavericks made their third straight appearance in the 1A/2A/3A Men’s Championship game, and finally broke through to win the championship after tough losses to Cardinal Gibbons in each of the last two years, including a heart-breaking 13-12 overtime decision in last year’s final.
