Vashon lacrosse Vultures feast on Redmond, Ore., 19-2

Jack Lorence, Cooper Loraas and Gregor Davidheiser each scored four goals, and Derek Kimbrough had two goals and five assists to lead Vashon’s Vultures to a 19-2 lacrosse rout of Redmond, Ore., in boy’s high school exhibition action Saturday at Vashon High School on Saturday, March 29.

Vashon goalkeeper Chad Richardson (1-3-0) had nine saves in the win.

Vashon coach Charley Rosenberry said Redmond’s head coach is Jake Mulhair, a member of the first Vashon High School Lacrosse Club in 1992.

Despite missing two of its top midfielders, Vashon dominated the game. Vashon effectively controlled the ball on offense, and seven different Vultures scored.

Vashon’s defense throttled almost every Redmond scoring attempt.

But the week as a whole was a mixed bag for the Vultures.

Against top-ranked Bainbridge on Tuesday, March 25, “Everything that could go wrong went wrong,” said Rosenberry.

A combination of Vashon inattentiveness and Bainbridge skill resulted in a 25-1 thumping.

But Vashon bounced back two nights later against an athletic and experienced Skyline High School team.

Vashon stayed even with Skyline, tied at seven through three periods. Penalties were Vashon’s downfall in the end. Skyline capitalized on two Vashon penalties in the fourth period to pull ahead for the win, 10-8. Nevertheless, there was reason for optimism in this game, said Rosenberry. Vashon’s defense, led by captains senior Ian Blixt and sophomore Austin Franks, made Skyline work hard for every score.

On offense, Vashon exhibited balanced scoring with six different players notching goals and/or assists. Junior Jack Lorence led scorers with two goals and two assists.

The Vultures went up against a talented Lakeside School on Monday, March 31, too late for inclusion in this week’s paper.
