This was always the goal.
This was always the dream.
This — the 2017 Oregon Girls Lacrosse Association state championship — went from goal to reality for Lake Oswego on Thursday.
The top-ranked Lakers, facing No. 2 Oregon Episcopal School at Wilsonville High School, shrugged off an early tie, took control in the first half, dominated the second half and pulled away to win 13-3 for their second straight state championship.
