Death and taxes are iffy propositions when you stack them up against a men's college lacrosse team in upstate New York.

Onondaga Community College routed Monroe Community College 26-0 in Rochester on Saturday to run its winning streak to 100 games. The Lazers, five-time defending National Junior College Athletic Association champions, last lost on March 27, 2010.

The previous NJCAA record for consecutive victories in any sport had been 98 by Herkimer County Community College men's soccer team. By way of comparison with NCAA sports, Onondaga has a ways to go to catch Trinity College, which won 254 badminton matches in a row.

Matt Bennett led the way in the milestone win with four goals and four assists.


The average score during the Syracuse-area school's outlandish streak has been 25-4.

"We've had an awful lot of talent," coach Chuck Wilbur told recently. "But we've had an awful lot of luck, too. A lot of people see the scores, the big scores. But there have been a lot of close games where we've won by just a few goals."

Onondaga begins its postseason and a bid for a sixth straight title Wednesday.
