The Rutgers men’s lacrosse team had a fittingly feel-good finish to its 2015 season.Already eliminated from conference tournament play after dropping their first four Big Ten games, the Scarlet Knights welcomed then-No. 10 Ohio State, who was still vying for the No. 2 seed in the Big Ten, to Piscataway on the last day of the regular season.
Having too many capable players at one position is a problem that any head coach would welcome with open arms. That predicament, in regards to the attack unit, faced head coach Brian Brecht as the No. 16 Rutgers men's lacrosse team was preparing to embark on its 2016 campaign. Last season the Scarlet Knights' attack was the strongest unit on its team, with its 10.33 goals per game average finishing at No. 3 in the Big Ten and in the upper half of teams in the country in the regular season. All three of the Knights' starting attackers scored more than 20 goals, with then-junior Scott Bieda leading the way with 30, then-sophomore Christian Trasolini with 26 and then-freshman Jules Heningburg with 21.
Senior Scott Bieda found fellow attacker redshirt freshman Adam Charalambides at point blank range on the right side of the goal. With two defenders converging on him, Charalambides just barely got off a shot aimed at the top left of the net as he was falling to the ground, but Penn State goalie Will Schreiner stood tall and made the stop.As Schreiner corralled the ball and tossed it to teammate Tripp Traynor, sophomore attacker Jules Heningburg came out of nowhere from behind the net to deflect the pass into the air, catch the ball in his stick, square his body and blast a clean shot from 8 feet out past Schreiner all in one motion.It was Heningburg's career-high 6th goal of the game and gave the Rutgers men's lacrosse its first lead of the night over the Nittany Lions after fighting an uphill battle for 52-plus minutes of action. Heningburg's relentless sequence was the epitome of the Scarlet Knights' play Friday night, they simply would not be denied. The No. 19 Knights (10-3, 3-1) fought back from deficits of five and four in each respective half to take down No. 17 Penn State (7-6, 1-3) 15-14 in front of 2,328 on Senior Night at High Point Solutions Stadium. Jules Heningburg led the way with 6 goals and 2 assists, while Scott Bieda scored and dished out 3 goals of his own.With the win Rutgers captured the Friendship Cup from the Nittany Lions for the first time since 2010, reached double digit wins for the fifth time in program history and, most importantly, clinched its first ever trip to the Big Ten Tournament.After the home finale the Knights' 10 seniors were honored upon capping off a perfect 7-0 season at High Point Solutions Stadium in 2016."It's just absolutely unreal," Bieda said on finishing his home career with a comeback, signature win.(Zack) Sikora made an unreal speech when we were at the diner just saying how we've worked so hard in this stadium and on this field.
