The Wenatchee lacrosse team advanced in the playoffs last night with a 14-8 win over visiting Mt. Si. The Thunder wasted no time setting the tone, winning consecutive faceoffs and scoring three goals in the first two minutes of the game…
Wenatchee added two more goals by Triston Ploch and Jake Strahm to make it 5-nothing. Coach Brandon Parker says getting up early is huge.
Triston Ploch and Jake Strahm led the way with 4 goals each, while John Walker had three and Ben Higley a goal and three assists.
Next up for Wenatchee is a road playoff game against Tahoma Saturday at 5 o’clock. Coach Parker says he tinkered with their game plan along the way yesterday and hopes the boys bring the same energy in the next round.
