After seeing the Hood River Valley boys lacrosse team score 23 goals in its playoff opener, the Sherwood Bowmen were prepared for an Eagle onslaught Friday evening in the OHSLA state lacrosse playoffs.
The Sherwood defense rose to the challenge, keeping the Eagles out of the net in the first half and helping the Bowmen to move on with an 11-6 win.
"To give credit where credit is due, their goalie played a great game, making 22 saves," HRV coach Mac Jackson said.
The Eagles outshot Sherwood 45-28 in the game, but unfortunately for the Eagles they went everywhere but into the net.
"We had lots of opportunities and got the looks on offense that we wanted, but couldn't finish with a good shot," Jackson said. "We hit the pipe eight or nine times and missed shots that we would normally make."
The Eagles also collected 39 ground balls to the Bowmen's 24, but Sherwood dominated the faceoffs 13-6 to create numerous fast-break chances.
Brendan Kerr and Andrew Thompson had two goals each for HRV, while Pierce Whalen and Ryan Foster had one each.
Malcolm McCurdy made 11 saves in goal for HRV.
