HRV lacrosse flattens Sunset in nonleaguer

PORTLAND — The Hood River Valley lacrosse team took no prisoners Monday at Sunset, winning the non-league contest, 11-3.

With the score tied 1-1 at the eight-minute mark of the first quarter, HRV went on a five-goal run to put the game away and raise their overall record to 7-6.

“It was great to see our team turn things around and play strong after being beaten down by some losses,” coach Mac Jackson said. “We just took control early and never let up.”

Senior Jon Munk led the Eagles with six goals and two assists. Fellow senior Todd Anderson tallied two scores, while Jacobe Krizman, Tyler Monzie and Kyle Zuercher each had one goal.

Jackson commented specifically on the play of his defense, which was led by Todd Shypertt, Noel Thomas, John Thatcher, Nate Dethman and goalie Sean Jennings.

He was also complimentary of the efforts of Justin Wiley, Will Galvin, Casey Vannet, Michael Clement and MD Low.

Next up, HRV hosts Wilson in a big Columbia Division matchup Friday at 7 p.m.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive

The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
