Lakers top Pacers in girls lacrosse

LO eyes rematch with West Linn while Lakeridge continues to improve


The Lake Oswego girls lacrosse team easily handled Lakeridge on the road Tuesday, 16-1, as it eyes its upcoming rematch with West Linn.

The Lakers' defense was stellar in the game, giving up just four shots in the contest.

Lake Oswego controlled possession in the game and was dominant on ground balls, coming through with 32 in the contest.

The Pacers tried to be slow and collected on offense but struggled to find gaps in the defense.

Lake Oswego peppered the Lakeridge goal, especially early on, taking 31 shots and scoring on more than half of them.

Madeline Reece led the way with five goals while Lilly Newman and Abby Bergervin each notched hat tricks.

It was one of Lake Oswego's best all-around efforts of the season as the team continues to pick up momentum heading into tonight (Thursday)'s road game against West Linn.

Becka Wachtel scored Lakeridge's lone goal in the contest and also had five ground balls while claiming five draws.

The Pacers have had a tough schedule recently, also falling to undefeated West Linn 15-4 last week.

In that game, Lakeridge got on the board first on a nice shot by Lauren deLancelotti and did a nice job slowing down the pace of the game early.

However, once the Lions got rolling, they were difficult to slow down.

The Pacers did a nice job on draws in the game and also forced eight turnovers.

Lakeridge also won the ground ball battle in the contest.

The difference was West Linn's shooting efficiency as the team scored on 15 of 22 attempts while Lakeridge, despite getting off 16 shots, could only score four times.

Lake Oswego, meanwhile, drubbed St. Mary's 16-0 Monday. Twelve different players scored in the game. Bergervin had two goals and two assists.

Lexi Cheetham led the team with four ground balls and Lake Oswego gave up just one shot in the contest.

Lake Oswego looks to tie West Linn for the league lead tonight (Thursday) while Lakeridge hosts Canby.
