The high school boys lacrosse team opened its season in an impressive fashion on Saturday, tallying an 11-5 victory over Klahowya High School. Vashon’s offense was led by Roan O’Neill with four goals and two ground balls, Griff Jennings with two goals, three assists and two ground balls and Winter Krimmert with two goals and one ground ball. Evan Anderson scored a goal and an assist, while Elliot Carleton and Ezra Ende each had a goal.

Freshman Dawitt Tuller-Ross scooped up eight ground balls in his varsity debut, while veteran senior net minder Marquis Stendahl had 12 saves. Junior midfielder Winter Krimmert dominated the face-off circle while his twin brother, Chance Krimmert, held Klahowya’s 2013 leading goal scorer to no points.

Vashon coaches praised the effort of the team and were pleased that every member of the team had an opportunity to contribute to the victory.

The Division II Vashon Vultures are looking to make an impact in the newly realigned Olympic division, but will face stiff competition in their next four outings against Division I schools. During the 2014 lacrosse season, small Div. II schools will compete against their much larger Div. I counterparts throughout the season. The complete schedule is at www.vashonlacrosse.net.

Daniel Macca, the team’s coach, will be at the Vashon Hardware Store Restaurant from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday for guest bartender night, a benefit for the Vashon Lacrosse Club.
