Lions win girls lacrosse championship

West Linn lives up to its No. 1 ranking behind six goals from freshman Natalie Byrne


by: VERN UYETAKE - The team celebrates its state championship win after beating Lake Oswego.West Linn knocked off rival and two-time defending state champion Lake Oswego 19-13 on Thursday to capture its first girls lacrosse state title since 2003.

The Lions entered the game ranked No. 1 in the state with just one loss this year, which happened to come against the Lakers.

West Linn dominated the game which was played in an almost constant downpour at Hillsboro Stadium, taking control of the contest with six unanswered goals midway through the first half.

Natalie Byrne earned player-of-the-game honors with six goals. She also led the team by picking up five ground balls and captured three draws.

The freshman routinely broke through Lake Oswego double-teams and was a difficult mark all evening.

The Lakers made a run in the second half but never cut the lead to fewer than five goals. The 19 goals scored by West Linn was its highest scoring output of the season.
