SPOKANE: Pelkie’s two goals not enough as G-Prep falls to Idaho’s Lake City

SPOKANE — James Pelkie scored two goals and grabbed four ground balls as Gonzaga Prep dropped a 15 – 5 boys high school lacrosse decision to Idaho’s Lake City, Tuesday at Gonzaga Prep in Spokane.

The loss the second of the season for the Bullpups against Lake City and eighth overall.

Lake City dominated early, blanking the Bullpups 5 – 0 in the first and putting up three more in the second for an 8 – 1 halftime lead. In the third, Lake City again outpaced coach Chris Shogan’s Pups, netting four goals to make it 12 – 2. Gonzaga Prep finally got its legs in the fourth, but its three goals only matched another three by Lake City as the Bullpups fell short.
