The Churchill girls lacrosse team took a 7-0 lead in the game before the Indians got on the board. Roseburg fell 12-6 in the Southern Region game.
“(Roseburg) put up a good fight tonight,” Roseburg coach Karly Snider said. “I felt we were prepared and the girls rocked it tonight. We were looking at some of the scores from other Churchill games and the other teams they’ve played —and these are good Portland-area teams— and we are doing just as good as the other teams are.”
The Lancers are undefeated this season going 9-0 overall and 4-0 in the region while Roseburg is 1-4 overall but still winless (0-3) in the conference.
Roseburg’s Anna Lake scored three goals in the game including the first goal for the Tribe after falling behind 7-0.
“It was hard to get going,” Anna Lake said. “It’s hard to get in the mindset and we need to work on that.”
By halftime the Indians were behind 8-3.
Sarah Lake, Marin Metz and Dean Olinghouse each contributed one goal for Roseburg.
“We kept fighting,” Sarah Lake said. “We need to center on getting to the ball earlier in the game.”
The Indians did a better job keeping up with Churchill in the second half of the game, scoring three goals in the second part in comparison to the Lancers’ four goals.
“We are very much a second half team,” Snider said. “As a new coach all of this has been a learning experience. We should be starting with the intensity that we end the game with.”
Goalie Louisa Sanchez had five saves.
“We fought really well,” Anna Lake said. “We worked well together.”
The Indians will play Southridge and Corvallis at Corvallis High School on Saturday.
