HRV lax girls qualify for state with OT win

Wednesday evening’s nail-biting end to one of the best games of the season for the Hood River Valley High School varsity girls lacrosse team was a fitting way to end the regular season. The 15-14 overtime win, at home over Lincoln, puts the Eagles in a tie for third place (with Lincoln) in Portland League standings and ensures the team a spot in the Oregon Girls Lacrosse Association state championships.

Gabby Dittenhoffer had her best game of the season with five goals to lead the team in the win; Hannah Hurley and Kristen Lago had three each, Andrea Iobst had two and Sophie Brentlinger and Kayla Van Hoose had one each.

The win comes after a tough road loss Tuesday against Grant. Lago led the team in the 16-11 loss with four goals, with Delia Dolan and Hurley scoring two each and Iobst, Erin Mayer and Lydia McElderry all scored one.

This week’s action wraps up an 8-6 regular season for the Eagles. The Portland League was dominated by Oregon Episcopal School with an undefeated 13-0 season and Wilson at 12-1.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
