HOOD RIVER SUMMER JAMBOREE
2 weekend ago Hood River hosted the Hood River HS Lax Jamboree at Hood River Valley High School . OES, Oregon City, Hood River, Glencoe and a combined team with players from Sheldon and Churchhill participated. Most games were on the stadium field. Two were on the football practice field. Each team played a minimum of 3 games with an hour rest between games. Two teams had to play a back to back game, no rest. The games were 25 minute running time halves with two OHSLA officials on each game.
Teams all had fun with it. Games were competitive and everyone got good playing time. It was a jamboree, so no tournament-style brackets (maybe next year).We don't have all the scores but think OES won all their games – they had 7-4 win over Hood River and 6-3 win over Sheldon/Churchill. Hood River and Sheldon Churchill played an exciting game where Hood River came back from down 5-1 at half to end tied 7-7. Hood River won against Glencoe 10-5, jumping out to a 5-0 lead and hanging on as Glencoe came back in the second half.
There was also a skills competition – fastest and most accurate shots. Good prizes donated from the local lacrosse shop, Shortt Supply = a Warrior EvoTi and Brine Clutch for 1st – Hood River players came in first, no it wasn’t rigged, just turned out that way.
