Jonathan Murphy moves downfield against Byrd.

Flyers get big win to start season

The lacrosse season opened with an early season match-up between two perennial powerhouse teams in the Louisiana North Division as the Loyola Flyers hosted the Byrd Yellow Jackets with the Flyers coming away with a 12-4 victory.

Loyola started in quick fashion with Ethan Stansell being sent to the penalty box almost immediately and the Yellow Jackets capitalizing on their man up opportunity just as quickly. Unfortunately for the Yellow Jackets, the Flyers opened their scoring account immediately after and never really looked back.

Khalil Sumlin posted an impressive 80 percent win percentage from the face-off X with help from Mitchell Ratcliff to help kick-start the Flyer’s offense. 

Senior Josh Mathias led the team in points on the day with 3 goals and 2 assists. All-American Hayden Watts tallied 3 goals, as did senior Zekaiah Foster. Daniel Mazzanti, Jackson Smith and Carter Windham each scored 1 goal in the victory. 

Sophomore goalie Thomas Hebert was outstanding in goal with an impressive .69 save percentage, including a big save in the last second of the game. The defense, led by captain Ethan Stansell forced numerous turnovers and recorded a .65 clearing percentage, allowing your Flyer offense to control the game at their own pace.

The Flyers return to action on Thursday, February 11th at Caddo Magnet, and with a game over the weekend as the Flyers host Catholic High School at Messmer Stadium on Saturday.
