MILLBURN NJ- The Millburn High School Boys Lacrosse team has had an impressive 3-1 start to their season, defeating top tier teams Morristown Beard, Montclair-Kimberly, and Caldwell. The team has played together and has asserted their motto, “All In,” to be visible on the field and in the locker room. 

The Miller’s season opener came at home, where they hosted Morristown Beard in a very exciting game which ended in a 12-11 overtime victory in favor of Millburn.  Millburn’s shooters included Maxwell Nemerow who had four goals, Tyler Alexander with two goals, Gabe Greenberg who had two goals and two assists, and Ben Cebula and Charlie Enberg who each had one goal. Tied 11-11 in overtime, Nathan Weinrauch who had 2 goals and 3 assists on the day put the ball in the back of the net to help Millburn reach the final victorious score of 12. Weinrauch, a team captain, unfortunately suffered an injured shoulder during the team’s celebration and has missed several games and practices due to the injury. 

Millburn’s only loss thus far came on April 3rd in Kinnelon, where ferociously cold weather was not a deterrent for the victorious Kinnelon Colts. Millburn’s four goals in the fourth quarter were not enough for Millburn to pull through to win.  Kinnelon was victorious with a score of 11 to 5.  Millburn’s Evan Steinfeld and Tyler Alexander each had two goals, which turned out not to be enough. Kinnelon’s offense came out strong in the second and third quarters where they scored eight of their eleven goals. Brian Gnad let the Colt’s attack with four goals and 3 assists, which was unmatched by any player on the day. Steve Landsberg and Robert Lewis each had 2 goals and combined for 3 assists.

At home versus Caldwell, the Millburn boys pulled off another stunner as they came out with the win by a two goal margin, winning nine to seven on April 6. Millburn goalie and captian Matt Berns had an amazing game and made 17 saves on the day. Miller goals came from captain Tyler Alexander who had 3 goals and 2 assists and Charlie Enberg who had 2 goals, among other players who added to Millburn’s decisive goal tally. Billy Pierce was the top scorer for Caldwell with 3 goals.  

When Matt Berns, senior goalie and captain was asked about this season’s success thus far, Matt responded, “We're very proud of our wins so far. We were disappointed when a couple of our starting players were injured. However, we continued to work hard and stay undefeated in the conference. We hope to continue our winning ways especially when we get some players back in the mix.” 

Captain Nathan Weinrauch, responded to a similar question by stating, “I think we're off to a great start. We suffered a tough loss early on but we regained momentum and composure and we are heading in a great direction. Our seniors and upperclassmen are stepping up and we are getting great play from underclassmen as well. We expect things to only get better from here on out.” 

On April 8th, the Miller's continued their surge as they defeated Montclair-Kimberly by a score of 14-9. MKA’s 9 goals came from many shooters including Syracuse University recruit, Matt Lane who had 3 goals and 1 assist. Ryan Fennelly also had a goal-assist combo for the Cougars. Seven of Millburn's 14 goals came in the 1st quarter, which put them on top to lead for the rest of the game. Points from Millburn came from senior captain Maxwell Nemerow who had 5 goals and an assist, senior Nathan Weinrauch who is returning from injury and added 1 goal and 1 assist, junior Evan Steinfeld who had 2 goals and 4 assists, Charlie Enberg who had 3 goals and an an assist, and junior Gabe Greenberg who had 2 goals and an assist. Captain Tyler Alexander also added a goal along with an assist. Millburn goalie, Matt Berns had a good game, making 8 saves. 

When asked about the team’s goals going into the rest of the season and the team’s progression so far, captain, Alex Schoen said, “We want to compete with the best teams in the state and hopefully bring back our school’s first lacrosse state title.” Schoen also said, “We’ve been tested with good competition. We have some injured guys but we are waiting until we are all healthy, but as of now we are yet to peak”. 

The team has named five captains this season, all senior contributors who have demonstrated great leadership. They  are Tyler Alexander, Matt Berns, Nathan Weinrauch, Maxwell Nemerow, and Alex Schoen.

The 3-1 Millers hope to continue their winning streak. Their next game is home against Randolph at 4pm on April 11.
