Winning streak continues for boys lacrosse

The Vashon Lacrosse Club high school boys team won its fourth straight game on Saturday with a 15-9 victory over Seattle’s Ballard High School. The victory kept Vashon in the race for a berth in the state playoffs.

Vashon’s potent offense established itself early in this game, scoring the first four goals in the first quarter. Luke Hembree and Caz Mozeleski led the charge with two goals apiece.

Ballard’s defense stiffened in the second quarter to limit Vashon to a single goal. But Vashon repeatedly thwarted Ballard’s efforts to get the ball out of its defensive end. Vashon held a tentative 6-2 lead at the half.

Both teams unleashed offensive firepower in the third quarter, with each scoring five goals. Ballard could not stop Hembree and Mozeleski, and Vashon’s Dan Lofland and Konnar Fall also added goals. Vashon’s defense became more aggressive in the fourth quarter, allowing the team to pull away from Ballard on goals from Evan Anderson, Anthony Baker and two more for Mozeleski to seal the win. Baker’s goal was a crowd pleaser as he raced the length of the field to find the back of the Ballard net.

Hembree led scorers with a staggering six goals and four assists. Winter Krimmert continued to improve at face-off, and Vashon’s defense showed enough proficiency to back up another stellar performance from goalie Aaron Bomber.

Vashon traveled to Kennedy Catholic Monday and will play top-ranked Seattle Prep today at home.
