Girgus powers Lynnwood past Coeur d’Alene in boys lacrosse

March 22, 2009

EDMONDS, Wash. – Cameron Girgus’ seven points and ten ground balls powered Lynwood past Coeur d’Alene 9 – 6 in a non-league boys varsity lacrosse game on Sunday at Edmonds-Woodway High School in Edmonds, Wash.

Lynwood found the net early taking a 3 – 1 lead after the first quarter. However, a hungry Coeur d’Alene attack outscored Lynwood 4 -1 in the second to take a 5 – 4 lead into the intermission.

In the third, the two teams traded goals before Devan Hardwick connected at 1:18 on a pass from Girgus to put Lynwood up for good.

The fourth was all Lynwood as two more goals were added by Jesse Wackerbarth and Hardwick to close out the scoring.

Lynwood goalkeeper Tyler Carson had eight saves in the win.
