On Friday, Bishop Verot faced Barron Collier in the FHSAA Boy’s Lacrosse state second round play-in, whom the Vikings defeated 7-6 more than a month ago.
This time around, the Cougars got the best of the Vikings, winning 16-3 to end Bishop Verot’s strong season.
“I give all the credit to Barron Collier, they came very prepared,” Vikings coach Dan Krispinsky said. “They really came on their game and made a lot of adjustments to their play. They cut off our attack really well and they just had a really great game plan.”
Marc Krispinsky, a seinor, notched two goals and an assist for the Vikings (16-5), with Austin Suarez and Griffin DeCarli also standing out with seven saves and 10 groundballs, respectively.
Bishop Verot will send six seniors into the college ranks after the year, but coach Krispinsky is excited for the future of the program.
“We have a lot of talent coming back, we’ll be really strong in the middle area and we’ve got a lot of promising freshman,” he said.”I’m proud of the level of lacrosse that is occurring in this area and we want to be one of the powerhouses in the area and state for a long time.”
