by: TRIBUNE FILE PHOTO: KATIE HARTLEY - Portland LumberJax coach Derek Keenan watches a practice.The Portland Winterhawks set a franchise record for longest home losing streak, falling for the 10th straight time overall as they plummet in the Western Hockey League.

Seattle shuts them out with Yeomans work — Thunderbirds goaltender Derek Yeomans gets 3-0 victory.

Meanwhile, Portland's indoor National Lacrosse League team of coach Derek Keenan is doing a little better — the LumberJax lose only their fourth game in a row. They fell 11-8 at the Rose Garden to the Minnesota Swarm. The Jax are off to a 2-8 start in their second NLL season.
