VIDEO: Montclair Kimberley scores dramatic win over Immaculata
Written by - Saturday, May 28 2016  

Under the radar, Montclair Kimberley has enjoyed a strong boys' lacrosse season this spring. With elimination staring the Cougars in the face in the state semifinals, however, they refused to go quietly.

MKA scored twice in the final 1:14 of regulation to force overtime against Immaculata. The Cougars then scored early in the second extra period to pull out a dramatic 7-6 triumph and book a trip to the Non-Public B state finals.

Ryan Dancy made a leaping catch of a long pass from Jason Gertz, then put the ball in the net just 23 seconds into the second OT. It was the third goal of the game for Dancy.

Max Hall notched two goals and one assist for MKA. His goal with just over 30 seconds to play tied the score at 6-6 after Immaculata had grabbed a 6-4 lead with only 1:55 to go.

Joe Strain had the other two goals for the Cougars. His twin brother Rob came up big in the net for MKA, making 11 saves, including two in the first overtime.

Third-seeded Immaculata led 5-1 at halftime and still held a 5-2 lead going to the final quarter. Tyler Kojac led the Spartans with two goals.

Steve Dwyer, Alan Kinzy, Conner Entwistle and Tommy Palen also had goals for the young Immaculata team, which finishes the season at 7-9.

Montclair Kimberley is now 14-6. The second-seeded Cougars face top seed Pingry in the Non-Public B state final on Wednesday at Hopewell Valley High School.
