Your 2013 Vail Lacrosse Shooutout champions are ALL Out (men’s elite) and Team STX (women’s elite), capping more than a week’s worth of action county-wide.
Men’s elite championship game — All Out 16, Lacrossewear 15 (2 OT)
Lacrossewear got out of the gates hot and was leading 7-2 midway through the second quarter. ALL Out was able to stop the bleeding as it narrowed the gap to 8-5 by halftime.
The teams traded goals in the third quarter, but with four seconds left before the end of the period, ALL Out converted on a fast break to further narrow the lead to 11-9.
ALL Out would use the momentum of the late goal and came out firing in the fourth tying the game when tournament MVP Nick Ossello (Notre Dame ’15) won a faceoff and scored a two point goal on the ensuing fast break.
ALL Out took its first lead with under three minutes left in the fourth quarter and tried to kill the clock for the remaining few minutes. After an exciting defensive series to get the ball back, Lacrossewear’s Kieran McArdel (St. John’s ’14) tied the game with 44 seconds left in regulation.
In the first overtime (non-sudden-death), ALL Out looked like it would be the victor after Billy Ward (Syracuse ’14) scored first, but Lacrossewear’s Reilly O’Connor (Georgetown ’15) put home a game-tying goal with less than two seconds left to stay alive.
In the second overtime (sudden-death), ALL Out’s Billy Ward scored the game-winning goal just 20 seconds in after Nick Ossello won the faceoff.

Championship Game —
STX 13, Harrow Honeybadgers 3
Sparks flew in this championship game as soon as the first ball went into the air. Honeybadgers were not intimidated and combated the fast pace of Team STX.
Although the score at half was 7-1 in favor of Team STX, Maggie Tamasitis, tournament MVP from STX, had assisted four first half goals for her team.
Molly Pais, of Honeybadgers, scored the first goal of the second half, but Kitty Cullen responded with 2 goals of her own; one being a behind the back shot. Honeybadgers aggressiveness never dwindled as the game played came to an end.
