Well, okay. That one lived up to the hype.
Issaquah swaggered into Bellevue Stadium Friday night fresh off a big win against Mercer Island. Bellevue was burstin’ its britches after knocking off Guilderland of New York, as well as Bainbridge Island. Fans crowed, smack was talked and Comcast Sports showed up to [...]Continue Reading →
Ah..now that was a night. Capping what was easily the most entertaining two days in this young lacrosse season we had thee overtime games, five one-goal games and a streak-ending upset. Rather than dive into a game of the week, we thought we’d give some highlight coverage to big moments from Monday and Tuesday.

Day one of the 2012 Northwest Invitational was one to remember. The lacrosse was fine but the weather was spectacular and the out-of-state fans were having a good time. Ten teams and their entourages were bustling around the fields on Friday, buzzing about the city, the mountains, and the lacrosse.
Henderson Lacrosse Club, this year’s [...]Continue Reading →

But Seattle Prep’s school motto, Virtus in Arduis, stamped onto the tail-feathers of the lacrosse team, could not have better summed up the Panthers’ game against Vashon Island. (Go ahead, [...]Continue Reading →

It’s cold, the rain is relentless and I sit staring as the ferry I was supposed to catch pulls away from the dock. You’d think this was a lousy start to Date Night with my wife. But nothing can ruin the mood, because it’s the first Saturday in March and we’re going [...]Continue Reading →
