Lake Oswego girls lacrosse wins state title
The Lakers win their third championship in four years 11-5
The Lake Oswego girls lacrosse team claimed its third state championship in four years and did so in convincing fashion, downing rival West Linn 11-5 at Tualatin High School Wednesday night.
The Lakers used a balanced scoring attack and a fantastic defensive effort to rattle off eight straight goals after falling behind early 3-1.
It was a physical game that saw multiple yellow cards and the Lions played much of the contest short-handed. But Lake Oswego played nearly flawlessly, winning draws, relentlessly beating the Lions to ground balls and limiting turnovers.
Six different players scored for the Lakers, led by a hat trick from Lilly Newman and Madeline Reece was terrific on draws.
Freshman goalie Riley Hertford was a rock in the net, racking up an astounding 16 saves against one of the potent offenses in the state.
The Lions and Lakers have played each other in the last three state title games. Look for full coverage of Lake Oswego's state championship in next week's Review.Add a comment
