The Hood River Valley girls lacrosse team finds itself in the thick of the PIL league standings after blasting Grant 17-3 Friday.

The easy win got the Eagles above .500 at 3-2 and put them into a tie with St. Mary’s for fourth place in the league standings.

Kristin Lago had a strong all-around game with three goals and three assists. Kayla Van Hoose also had three goals for HRV.

HRV kept the Grant defense busy the entire game, sending 35 shots at the Grant goal.

On defense, Cristina Silva saved eight of 11 shots taken against her for HRV while Ricki Swearingen and Lago combined to collect nine ground balls.

The Eagles dominated possession of the ball, collecting 27 ground balls to Grant’s 12.
