Three Peat! OCC wins National Championship

The way they got their may have been different, but the end result was the same as it was the previous 18 games.

The OCC Men's Lacrosse team beat CCBC-Essex 12-9 on Sunday at Herkimer CC to win the National Championship, the program's third straight and 5th in 6 seasons.

In a season filled with victories, all but one in blowout fashion, the top-ranked Lazers found themselves trailing 5-1 early in this National Title Game. Onondaga though, rallied in a big way, outscoring the Knights 6-1 to take a 7-6 lead. Essex would knot things up again, but when OCC took a 9-8 lead, they would never look back.

Matt Crough was named offensive MVP, and OCC finishes undefeated at 19-0.
