Semi Recaps Division Two Richland vs. Garfield In a battle of unbeatens, the Richland Coyotes came over to face the Garfield Bulldogs on their home field.

This is not that kind of story. This is about the “Goliaths” that roam…(Read More)

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…(Read More)

72 days ago, King’s Way defeated Eastside Catholic 19-11 to start the 2012 lacrosse season for both teams. Last night in a Division 1 semi-final game, Eastside Catholic ended King’s Way’s season in the rematch.  It’s been a remarkable 72 days for the Crusaders. Last night’s game showed…(Read More)
