And so it begins.
On a perfect night in Washington the 2013 Boy’s lacrosse season kicked off with four Non-League contests across the Sound. Kennedy Catholic hosted Peninsula-Gig Harbor, and the Lancers rode hat-tricks from Sebastian Ferraro, Anthony Parker and Ashton Pieris to defeat the visitors 9-8. Tahoma visited Woodinville in a Division 1 battle, [...]Continue Reading →
The Mayans were right; 2012 is the end.
The 9th annual Space Needle Shootout was held this last weekend in Tukwila and as usual, it had some good lacrosse, some memorable moments, some really good feelings, and this year, the end of an era.Continue Reading →
D2: Snohomish vs Garfield
This year’s championship games were a study in contrast. Snohomish, with second year coach Chris Cote, rolled through their season undefeated yet had never played Garfield, their opponent in the final game. Cote was furiously scouting, looking for any information he could find on the [...]Continue Reading →
In hindsight, maybe Mercer Island should have been less concerned about limiting emotions in the stands and more about getting some on the field.
On a rare night where policemen outnumbered streakers in The Jungle at Mercer Island, the Bellevue Wolverines dismantled their hosts from the opening [...]Continue Reading →
Certainly it is a heated rivalry. For sure it’s rabid fans, a packed house, intense coaches and two of the best lacrosse teams in the state. But it the end, it’s just a great way to spend a Saturday night. In the morning it probably feels a little more great for [...]Continue Reading →
According to the clock the game hadn’t started, yet Bellevue was down 1-0 to Eastside Catholic. The net was ringing, Bellevue goalie Austin Boyd was stunned and Eastside Catholic’s Austin MacCord was jumping high in the air, having picked up a kicked ground ball and tomahawked a goal in from three yards; so quickly that [...]Continue Reading →
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.
Eastside [...]Continue Reading →
Northwest Invitational – Day Two
And with Day Two the Northwest Invitational got into full swing. The Seattle Chamber of Commerce provided the weather again on Saturday, which led to happiness and much cheer along all the sidelines. There were 11 varsity games on the docket and 75 lbs of ribs on Dave’s BBQ, the [...]Continue Reading →
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 →
SoundLacrosse recently sat with the coaches of Puget Sound’s top programs and discussed the state of Washington lacrosse. What resulted was a spirited discussion about how to grow the game, WIAA sanctioning, club teams, and Washington’s national standing.
In attendance were Ian O’Hearn, Mercer Island, John Baumann, Bellevue, Brandon Fortier, Issaquah and Dejon Hush, Lake [...]Continue Reading →
Thanks to Ian O’hearn and the folks at Mercer Island (and Bellevue) for bringing together the best lacrosse in the Northwest yet again. For me, the highlight was definitely Dave’s pulled pork on Friday and his rib dinner on Saturday. Also, the rainbow during the MI-Sunset game.
One of the biggest lacrosse festivals in the entire country, the Northwest Invitational is where the top teams in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada and British Columbia get together to find out just how good they are. This is the best high school lacrosse you’ll see, with the exception of the playoffs in [...]Continue Reading →
