The Hood River Valley lacrosse team only had a few days to bask in the glory of making the playoffs.
Now they only have one day to revel in the idea of winning in the playoffs.
The Eagles slowly picked apart Lake Oswego Tuesday at Henderson Stadium, and won their first-ever playoff game by a score of 16-11.
And just like that, they have to get on a bus and go to Eugene on Thursday for a quarterfinal match against Sheldon.
"I cannot credit the comeback character of this team enough," coach Mac Jackson said. "They toughed it out, persisted and are now rolling."
Tuesday's win was HRV's third in a row overall. It also gave the Eagles a measure of revenge against Lake Oswego, which had beaten them 18-15 back on April 4.
Seniors Jon Munk and Todd Anderson each scored three goals, while Jacobe Krizman and Tyler Monzie each added three scores.
"It's an amazing feeling," Anderson said. "This was such a big team win. We just hope to do it again on Thursday."
If HRV can get past Sheldon (14-3 overall, 12-0 league), they would play in the state semifinals on May 28 at Wilsonville High School. For a complete wrap-up, see the May 24 edition of the Hood River News.
