Lake Oswego evens the season series with a second-half goal

by: MATTHEW SHERMAN - Lake Oswego's Grayson Williams-Krebs tries to make a run past Lakeridge's Brittney Dales during last week's 1-0 win by the Lakers.The Lake Oswego girls soccer team entered last week's rematch with Lakeridge 7-2 on the year with only one truly disappointing result on its ledger. That result was a 4-1 loss to the Pacers in their league opener in which Lakeridge scored three quick goals to put the game away.

The Lakers were on a mission to make sure that didn't happen again on Thursday and walked away with an impressive 1-0 victory in a well-played game by both sides.

Lake Oswego set the tone early when Madeline Reece hit a shot that grazed the crossbar in the opening minutes of the game. Lakeridge came back with a deep shot by Maddie Krauss that was saved by Laker keeper Juliana Ramey.

Lake Oswego held a slight edge in possession in the first half as both defenses held firm and didn't give up many good looks at the goal.

Reece had another chance from 10 yards out that she sent over the crossbar with 10 minutes to play in the half and Krauss sent a free kick just over the frame as the teams played to a scoreless first half.

The scoring drought was broken just five minutes into the second half. Ali Binns sent a well-placed corner kick into the box and Sarah Passadore got a foot on it for what would be the game's only goal.

Lake Oswego stayed aggressive in the second half getting a nice shot from Grayson Williams-Krebs that missed just wide.

Lakeridge got a dangerous run by Lauren King that was knocked away by Ramey to preserve the shutout.

Lake Oswego's defense tightened up even further down the stretch as Lakeridge mounted a final rally and the Lakers preserved a key victory in an exceptionally tight battle for positioning in the Three Rivers League.

Lakeridge got right back in the win column on Tuesday with a huge victory over Clackamas. The game was essentially for first place in the league and the Pacers put together a complete effort to win 3-1.

Lake Oswego played an exciting back-and-forth game with West Linn on Tuesday. The Lakers scored a pair of penalty kicks in the game and Williams-Krebs notched another goal but West Linn's offense found its stride and won 4-3.
