Lancers win, take lacrosse lead
With the Oregon High School Lacrosse Association playoffs looming next week, Churchill's boys lacrosse team clinched at least a share of the Willamette Division championship with an 8-4 victory over Thurston on Tuesday.
T.J. Whittle had three goals, Riley Kulm had three goals, Patrick San Jose had three assists and Montana Ostrander had nine saves for Churchill, which improved to 12-1 with one game left in the regular season.
Aaron Funke had three goals for Thurston, which is tied for second at 11-2 with Sheldon, a 14-3 winner over Roseburg on Tuesday.
Churchill, Thurston and Sheldon have already clinched spots in the state playoffs. Marist (5-7) has an outside shot at the fourth playoff spot, but the Spartans have to beat Elmira today and North Eugene on Friday and have Roseburg lose to Thurston on Friday to force a tie.
Sheldon's girls team has a chance to win the South Division title outright when it travels for a 5:30 p.m. game today at Roseburg.
The Irish are 8-1 and the Indians are 7-2 going into the final regular-season game. The league champion gets one of five automatic state playoff spots reserved for division champions. The rest of the field will be determined by an OHSLA playoff committee.
