Girls lacrosse teams prep for playoffs

The teams wrap up the regular season with the Civil War


The Lake Oswego girls lacrosse team easily handled Oregon City Monday to stay in a tie for first place with West Linn atop the league standings.

The Lakers' offense was relentless, getting off 35 shots in a 17-3 victory and winning virtually all facets of the game.

Lake Oswego's aggressive defense was tough for the Pioneers to contend with. The Lakers won 28 ground balls and forced 11 turnovers while playing on the Oregon City side of the field for the majority of the game.

Lilly Newman was incredibly efficient on offense, scoring five goals on six shots as she routinely got good looks at the net.

Madeline Reece had four goals while Lexi Cheetham had a goal and three assists as she captained the offense. That trio also combined to win 10 draws for the Lakers.

On defense, Lake Oswego held Oregon City to just seven shots, four of which were turned away by freshman goalie Riley Hertford.

Lakeridge, meanwhile, gave West Linn some problems again but couldn't match up to the Lions' speed and quickness in a 14-3 loss Tuesday.

The Pacers did well to slow the game down at times but, when the Lions were able to possess the ball and get into transition, they were tough to stop.

Becka Wachtel forced five turnovers in the game and had five ground balls as the Pacers won that statistic 22-14 but the Lions got too many open looks at the net.

Lauren deLancelotti scored two of her team's three goals and also captured three draws.

Lakeridge and Lake Oswego will close out the regular season against each other tonight (Thursday) at 8 p.m. at Lake Oswego High School.
