The Hood River Valley lacrosse team is beginning to feel the heat after losing its second straight Columbia Division game to Oregon Episcopal School last Friday.
Despite a strong first half, in which the Eagles took a 4-2 lead, HRV (6-5 overall, 5-3 league) lost its momentum late in the second quarter and early in the third before eventually falling 15-7.
“The game was a lot closer than the final score indicates,” coach Mac Jackson said. “But OES scored five goals to our one in the third quarter as penalties continued to plague us.”
Senior Corey VanDlac scored four goals to lead the way, and was followed by seniors Jon Munk, Justin Wiley and Todd Anderson with one apiece.
HRV’s playoff hopes are still intact despite falling to the Aardvarks, who are now 7-0 in league and 12-0 overall.
“We still think we can make the playoffs,” said senior Tyler Monzie. “OES wasn’t that much better than us. We kind of beat ourselves late in the game, and we’ll be ready for the rematch.”
That game was scheduled for Tuesday night in Portland, but results were not available at press time.
Other standouts for the Eagles on Friday were Jacobe Krizman (two assists), Todd Shypertt (nine ground balls, one assist) and Will Galvin (one assist).
Jackson also mentioned the courage of senior attacker Corey Olsen, who went down Friday with a broken collarbone.
