OREGON CITY — After a sloppy weekend of weather, the HRV lacrosse team took on Oregon City Monday in what many spectators would describe as Mud Bowl 2002.
But despite the driving rain and mucky field conditions, the Eagles still managed to put together an awesome offensive display and won the game 13-4.
“Of all the games they could have rained out, this should have been the one,” coach Chris Kelly joked. “It was a real mud bowl. But once our guys got a feel for the field, they took control.”
Junior Jon Munk was a machine Monday, netting four goals to lead the way for HRV.
“Munk dominated the attack,” Kelly said. “He had to step up his game in the absence of (Todd) Anderson and made a lot of things happen. If I had to give out a game ball, it would go to him.”
Senior Josh Kitts and juniors Tyler Monzie and Jacobe Krizman also put together solid offensive efforts, accounting for seven goals between them (Kitts 3, Monzie 2, Krizman 2).
Julian Helton and JV floater Casey Vannett rounded out the HRV scoring barrage with one goal apiece.
Vannett scored two more goals in the JV game to help lead the Eagles to a 7-3 win. Zach Bohince and David Voight matched Vannett’s output, while Max Powers scored one.
“Our JV guys look rock solid right now,” Kelly said. “This frosh class is the first to come through the middle-school system and their experience has really started to show early.”
He said that Oregon City was shorthanded and had a number of players swinging double duty on Monday, which made the JV’s win all the more impressive.
Overall, Kelly was encouraged by how well both teams moved the ball and identified the open man.
“We had tons of scoring opportunities in both games,” he said. “We need to work on finishing, but the ball movement and ability to get open have been tremendous.”
Kelly also complimented goalie Cody Cataldo on his resolve in the early season.
“He let a couple cheap goals go by early, but kept his head in it. A good game overall,” he said.
HRV travels to Lake Oswego tonight for its first real test of the young season.

Parkdale third graders sing "12 Disaster Days of Christmas"
Welcome to your sing-able Christmas gift list. What follows is an emergency rendition of “12 Days of Christmas” – for outfitting your home or car in case of snow storm, earthquake, flood or other emergency. Read it as a simple list, or sing it to the tune of “12 Days” – you know, as in “ … and a partridge in a pear tree…” Not to make light of it, but the song is a familiar framework for a set of gift ideas that you could consider gathering together, even if the recipient already owns items such as a bunch of coats, tire chains and flashlights. Stores throughout the Gorge are stocked up on all these items. Buying all 12 days might be prohibitive, but here are three ideas for checking any of the dozen off your list (notations follow, 1-12.) The gift items needed to stay warm, dry and safe are also coded to suggest items in your abode (A) in your car (C) or both (B). 12 Gallons of Water (A) 11 Family meals (B) 10 Cans of propane (A) 9 Hygiene bags (B) 8 Packs of batteries (A) 7 Spare coats (B) 6 Bright red flares (C) 5 Cozy blankets (B) 4 Tire chains (C) 3 Flashlights (B) 2 cell phone chargers (B) 1 And a crush-proof first aid kit (B) Price ranges? Here’s a few quotes for days Three, Two, Four and Nine: n A family gift of flashlights (three will run $15-30, Hood River Supply, Tum-A-Lum) n Cell phone chargers (two will run $30-60) n Tire chains (basic set, $30, Les Schwab, returnable if unused for the winter) n Family meals ($100 or so should cover the basics for three or four reasonably well-fed days) n The home kit should be kept in a handy place near an exit, and remember that water needs to be replenished every few months. If you have a solid first aid kit already, switch out the gift idea with “and-a-sto-o-u-t- tub-for it-all …” Otherwise, it’s a case of assembling your home or car kits and making sure all members of the family know what the resources are and how to use them (ie flares and propane). Emergency situations are at worst life-threatening, at best deeply uncomfortable if you and your family are left without power for an extended period, or traveling and find yourself in a situation where you need to wait out a storm, lengthy traffic delay, or other crisis. Notes on the 12 gift ideas: 12 – Gallons of water: that’s one per person in a four-member family to last for three days, the recommended minimum to be prepared for utility outages. 11 – Easy-open packaged goods, energy bars, dried food and nuts are good things to include for nutrition. Think of what your family of four needs for three days to stay fortified and hydrated (see number 12). Can-opener also recommended 10 – If you have a propane camping stove, keep extra fuel handy. 9 – Hygiene bags: put packaged moistened towelettes, toilet paper, and plastic ties in large garbage bags (for personal sanitation) Resource list courtesy of Hood River County Emergency Management, Barbara Ayers, manager/ 541-386-1213.
