TACOMA, Wash. – Daniel Lee connected for the lone fourth quarter goal to propel Tacoma to a 3 – 2 Boys Division II lacrosse win over Stadium High School, Thursday at the Bellarmine Preparatory School in Tacoma, Wash.

The win was Tacoma’s third straight as the Lions advanced to 6-1-0 on the season for sole possession of second place in the Olympic Division.

Following a scoreless first quarter, Tacoma struck first on a Givanni Natalizio goal at 9:03 of the second quarter. Stadium’s Drew Ramsey then evened the game late in the second.

Third quarter scores by Stadium’s Carter Chaffey and Tacoma’s Matt Hilger sent both teams into the final stanza deadlocked at two goals apiece, before Lee found the net for the game winner in the fourth.
