In the Merriam-Webster Dictionary's second definition of the word momentum it's labeled as 'strength or force gained by motion or by a series of events'.

In the debut season of boys lacrosse for the Mid-Suburban East obtaining it may hold the key toward capturing the division crown as none of its members headed into Thursday night's schedule with more than one loss in division play.

 

"There's a lot of parity in the MSL East," Buffalo Grove coach Ray Kincaid, Jr. said after his team's 9-8 overtime win at Rolling Meadows.

"And it's going to make it fun. Again, these kids have been waiting a long time for this. We just found something."

The visiting Bison (2-3, 2-1) found victory by rallying from a late 1-goal deficit that came from host Meadows unleashing 3 straight tallies, two of which came after both squads and those in attendance at Hoese Field had to endure a 15-minute delay due to power going out on the east side of the stadium when the lights inadvertently went out.

Senior attacker Ty Nagy sent the contest into extended play on a feed from fellow BG senior Will Genthner with just eight ticks left in regulation then completed the hat trick just 65 seconds into the extra session to get the win.

"It was nice to have a little break there," Nagy said. "So we sat down as a team and just said, 'Calm it down, we're still in this.' and we came back."

The game-tying goal came after Kincaid called a time out to set up the attempt to knot the game.

"We had great opportunity with Will dodging topside and kind of creating the motion," Kincaid said. "That gave us the opportunity for Nagy to have kind of come backside to receive that pass from Genthner and finish."

Freshman goalie Trevor Catlett (11 saves) kept the Meadows attack at bay as the home team put 29 shots on goal.

"The kid is absolutely a stud," Kincaid said. "He's been at our facility working out and doing goalie training constantly. He loves this position and he certainly great in his craft. I'm excited about his future for sure."

Senior midfielder Doyle Chism led the way for the Mustangs (4-5, 1-2) in defeat with 4 goals on the night.
