Gilbert upsets Desert Vista to win State Championship

Finals MVP Gavin Crist celebrates after a goal

With the memory of last year’s title still fresh, the Phoenix Desert Vista lacrosse team entered Friday night’s state final against Gilbert High with the reality of a three-peat closer than ever.

Gilbert and senior Gavin Crist had other plans.

Head coach Frankie Armenta and fifth-seeded Gilbert knocked off Desert Vista 10-9 in sudden-death overtime. It was the first time in the history of the Arizona Lacrosse League’s state title game that an overtime period was needed to crown a winner.

“We could tell that they were up, they were rising up,” Desert Vista head coach Dan Lannon said. “As the season was coming to an end, they were peaking out, so we knew that it was going to be a battle.”

Gilbert was riding a reasonable amount of momentum following the team’s one-goal win over top-seeded Phoenix Brophy Prep in the semifinals.
