Lacrosse teams keep winning


The Lake Oswego and Lakeridge girls lacrosse teams each took care of business last week heading into a crucial time in the season.

The Lakers swept the season series against West Linn, topping the Lions 9-6 on Tuesday.

Emily Fuller stole the show for Lake Oswego on offense scoring five of her team's goals. MacKenzie Place had a goal and a pair of assists while Amy Schlesinger, Megan Swindells and Flannery Underwood each notched goals of their own.

Lake Oswego out-shot the talented Lions 18-15 and Laker goalie Evan Goldsmith tallied nine saves to key the defense.

That win followed a 12-2 victory over Hood River. Underwood had four goals in that game while Fuller tallied four assists and a goal.

Lake Oswego travels to Oregon City this Friday at 6 p.m. and a victory in that game will clinch the No. 1 seed in the league for the Lakers.

Meanwhile, Lakeridge also picked up two victories with the first coming last Thursday 20-3 over North Clackamas.

The Pacers dominated the game and Lindsay Wagner led the way. She tallied six goals and five assists while Ally Will had five goals of her own.

Then, on Monday, Lakeridge buried Southridge 17-3.

Wagner exploded again, scoring five goals to go along with five more assists. Allie DeBruhl had four goals and Will added three.

Lakeridge and Lake Oswego play the second and final game of their rivalry this year next Tuesday at 7:15 p.m. at Lake Oswego High School.

The two teams will then gear up for their respective playoff runs. Lakeridge is currently in third place in the Three Rivers League.
