Osborn nets 2OT winner as Hale downs Wenatchee in boys lacrosse

April 10, 2009

SEATTLE – Nathan Hale’s Sam Osborn scored the winning goal with just 1:06 remaining in the second overtime to give the Raiders a 6 – 5 Boys Division II high school lacrosse win over Wenatchee, Friday at Summit Fields in Seattle.

Osborn connected for the unassisted game winner on an end-line possession after Wenatchee goaltender Thomas Bass turned away three consecutive Hale shots in the final minutes of the second sudden death period. The goal was his sixth in four games this season.

All of Wenatchee’s scoring came from junior midfielder Connor Tidd, including his fifth goal with just 55 seconds remaining in the game to force overtime. Despite playing with a three man advantage after three Hale penalties in the final 43 seconds of the game, Wenatchee was unable to find the net again.

In the first quarter, behind two Tidd goals, Wenatchee took a 2 – 1 lead.

In the second, Hale’s Joey Churnick converted an Alex Wright pass to tie the game at two with 2:42 remaining in the half. Just over a minute later, Wright again set up a score, feeding the ball to Ian Havey who fired a shot past Bass to give Hale a 3 – 2 advantage at the half.

In the third, Tidd again connected for Wenatchee to tie the game at three with 6:40 remaining. However, Osborn retaliated with just 39 seconds remaining to regain the lead for the Raiders.

Down 3 – 5 with 3:23 remaining in regulation, Tidd found the net again to bring Wenatchee within one. Tidd’s final goal, just inside the final minute of play, forced the first overtime period.

With the win, Nathan Hale evened their record at 2-2-0 on the season, while Wenatchee is now winless in three starts. Nathan Hale goalkeeper Spencer Adams (2-2-0) had nine saves in the win. Wenatchee’s Bass had 12 saves.
