The celebrations were muted, if present at all, even though the Lambert boys lacrosse team was completely dominating, blitzing towards easy goals after winning faceoffs and sequestering Parkview in its own half. The final score was 22-0 in favor of the Longhorns (17-1), and the defending state champions were expecting a result like that, facing a relatively new program in a sport with a particularly wide disparity of quality between teams. So Lambert director of lacrosse Rich Wehman kept his goals modest: Get a lead as quickly as possible, get the starters off the field and make sure nobody got hurt.
