Roosevelt halts late Wenatchee rally in 8 – 7 boys lacrosse win

WENATCHEE, Wash. — Roosevelt’s David Madsen scored with 2:16 remaining to give the Roughriders an 8 – 7 Boys Division II lacrosse win over Wenatchee, Saturday at Westside High School in Wenatchee.

With Roosevelt leading 7 – 4 in the fourth, Wenatchee’s Connor Tidd and Scott Hershey each found the net to bring the game within one goal, before the Roughriders’ Mitchell Parks knotted the game at seven with 2:51 remaining.

Just 35 seconds later, Madsen scooped up a ground ball and broke free of two Wenatchee defenders to score the go-ahead goal. Madsen, who has now scored 15 goals on the season, led all scorers with four goals.

The win advanced Roosevelt to fourth place in the Evergreen Conference with a 3-6-0 record.
