SPRINGFIELD — The Roseburg boys lacrosse team lost 8-7 in overtime to Thurston on Tuesday in its last Southwest Conference game.

"Overall I think this is a great season," said RHS coach Dave Heverly. "It's always good to get to the state playoffs and play one of the top teams."

Thurston was ahead 5-3 at halftime, but the Indians came back to tie up the game at 7-7 in the fourth quarter. Trevor Orlando scored the winning goal in overtime for the Colts (6-10, 4-6 SWC).

Tanner Reber had three goals and two assists, while Ethan Stoner, Lyle Lee, Scott Harvey and Nathan Lund each chipped in goals for Roseburg (10-4, 7-3).

The Indians, who finished second in the conference behind Sheldon, open the Class 6A state playoffs on the road Friday against Lakeridge.
