In the Class AAAA boys state championship game, Lambert beat Greenbrier (21-2) 5-0 after four goals by junior Bakawsu Kinteh. The Longhorns (23-0) captured their first state championship in just the third year of program history.

Host Lambert got started early, as Kinteh scored 10 minutes into the match. Then, 11 minutes before the half, Kinteh struck again after a scramble for the ball in front of the Wolf Pack goal to give the Longhorns a 2-0 halftime lead.

In the second half sophomore Cooper Coughlin headed in a corner by Nick Cafferrata with 32 minutes left, and the rout was on.

Senior goalkeeper Michael Zambetti kept a clean sheet in his final high school match, while Kinteh completed his junior season with 44 goals.

Congrats Longhorns from a JCHS Gladiator. Way to represent the 7AAAA region as the best sports region in 4A.

Heck of a winning streak!
