The top-ranked Onondaga Community College men's lacrosse team made history against Mohawk Valley Community College on Monday afternoon as the Lazers broke the NJCAA all-time record for consecutive wins across all sports and divisions. Onondaga picked up its record-breaking 98th straight victory by defeating the Hawks 33-0.

The Lazers' streak surpasses an 18-year old mark by the Herkimer County Community College men's soccer program which was established between 1994-1997.

Onondaga, who now stands at 11-0 on the season, was last defeated over five years ago in a one-point loss to Nassau Community College on March 27, 2010. Since that loss, head coach Chuck Wilbur's squads have been nearly invincible, dominating at every facet of the game. The Lazers have outscored their opponents by an astonishing 2,482-414 while holding opponents to two goals or less in a contest 41 times, resulting in five national championships in that span.

Throughout the winning streak Onondaga has defeated several nationally-ranked teams while sending over 100 student-athletes to NCAA schools to continue their playing career, including four being drafted into the National Lacrosse League.

On Saturday, the team tied Herkimer's record when the Lazers earned their 97th straight win after defeating Bridgton Academy, 30-2. These photos are from Saturday's game. Players of interest include Oakley Thomas and Adam Bomberry of Akwesasne, Brine Rice from Kahnawake, Matt Bennett from Onondaga, and Doug Jamieson from Six Nations.
