Mahtomedi boys’ lacrosse players felt appropriately concerned with facing defending champion Eagan on Tuesday in the state tournament quarterfinals.

“They are one of the best odd-man rush teams in the state,” senior midfielder Josh Campbell said. “At the same time, we knew we had to play six-on-six and try to force mistakes.”

The Zephyrs’ approach produced a 12-10 victory at Chanhassen High School. Campbell scored a hat trick and senior attackman Timmy Lindquist added four goals before being helped off the field with a lower-body injury late in the fourth quarter.
