---- — The Zionsville boys lacrosse team found their backs against the wall Saturday, May 3 against St. Joseph's.

But, trailing by three goals with seven minutes remaining, the Eagles mounted a ferocious rally, scoring the final five goals of the game to top St. Joe's 11-9.

Zionsville head coach Matt Garvey said he was happy of the way his team came back.

"I think it is really easy in that situation to put your head down," Garvey said. "You can't put it into words really. Our guys dug deep, our leaders stepped up and that is what they needed to do. I am extremely proud of them."

Zionsville led 6-4 early in the third quarter, but saw St. Joseph's score the next five goals to lead 9-6 with seven minutes remaining in regulation.

Shortly after, Matt Welch scored to make it 9-7. Ben Sherman scored with 4:20 left to bring the Eagles within one before Spencer Beebe tied the game with 2:23 left.

"We woke up," Garvey said when asked what the difference was. "Some of our big guns woke up for us. Ben Sherman rallied us and took over the game. That was big for us."
