First Quarter

West Linn started off with a bang, with Dylan Tuor scoring 8sec into the game.  A few seconds later on the very next possession, Jacob Taylor scored to make it 2-0.  Lakeridge finally got the ball and had a long possession, got off a few shots, but was unable to generate any good scoring opportunities as the West Linn defense was tight.  Jacob Taylor scored West Linn's third goal just before the end of the 1st quarter, and it was 3-0 West Linn after one quarter.

Fourth Quarter

West Linn started the scoring in the fourth quarter, regaining their 10 goal lead to make the score 13-3. Then Lakeridge got off the mat and began it's rally with two quick goals from Eleonso Cristobal. After West Linn coach Mark Flood called a time out, Lakeridge ripped off two more goals to make the score 13-7 with a little more than 9 minutes left in the game.  But the rally stalled for nearly six minutes thanks to some timely saves by Will Strickland (6 saves in the qtr, 10 saves in the second half).  Although Lakeridge was able to score two more goals, there wasn't enough time to complete the comeback and the game finished with West Linn the victor 13-9.
