Civil War Day!

Civil War match up highlights exciting day of lacrosse action

On Saturday, April 17th, thousands of fans from across Oregon will gather to celebrate one of the biggest lacrosse rivalries of the year between the University of Oregon Ducks and the Oregon State University Beavers. The game will be hosted by Sunset Lacrosse, and is part of an all day event powered by Warrior Sports at Sunset High School in Portland beginning at 8:30am.

The event is the Second Annual Civil War Lacrosse Game Day which was created as a way to bring together fans throughout the state in celebrating Oregon lacrosse. Throughout the day there will be four exciting lacrosse games, clinics, contests, raffles, vendor shopping, and meet and greets with professional players. The event is friendly to all ages and is sure to provide entertainment for everyone.

The event’s highlight game between the Ducks and Beavers is sure to be full of passion and intensity. The Ducks had a successful 2009 campaign, with a record of 11-7. They finished second in the Pacific Northwest Collegiate Lacrosse League conference, which led to a trip to the national championship tournament. UO is currently ranked 9th in the standings for college club lacrosse teams in the US on both the Lax Mag TOP23 and the LAX Power polls. The Beavers are an up-and-coming program that is currently ranked second in the PNCLL division. With a 6-6 record this past season and a 14-6 loss to UO in last year’s Civil War game, OSU will be looking to avenge the 2009 defeat.

Also competing at the event is the 2009 OHSLA champion, Oregon Episcopal School (OES), and the 2009 semi-finalist, Sunset High School. Both teams are currently in the Top 5 preseason rankings for 2010. After last year’s narrow defeat by OES at the inaugural Civil War Lacrosse Game Day, Sunset will be seeking payback against one of its biggest rivals and competitors.

During the course of the event, there will be two clinics hosted by some of lacrosse’s top talent. Lorne Smith, President and Director of Lorne Smith Lacrosse Camps and sales representative for Warrior Sports, will be coaching a clinic called “6v6 Motion Offense – Playing in Rhythm” which focuses on learning how to anticipate and move together as a team to attack a defense. Team USA and Warrior Player’s Club member Mike Leveille will be giving tips and tricks on how to beat a man from X to score and draw double teams in his clinic “Dodging from Behind for Attackmen and Inverting Middies.”

Those in attendance will also be able to show off their skills in the Warrior “Fastest Shot in Oregon” contest. The competition spans across four age divisions (U11, U13, U15, and HS) with the top two finalists from each contending against one another during the Civil War halftime event. Four winners will receive an unstrung Warrior Noz head, “The lightest head in lacrosse.”

Also making an appearance at the event will be vendors Lorne Smith, Warrior, Brine, Rhino Lacrosse, Bigfoot Lacrosse, Lacrosse Northwest, Chopstix Lacrosse, Sunset Lacrosse, University of Oregon Boosters, and Oregon State University Boosters.

Raffle tickets will be available for purchase through the Sunset Lacrosse tent. Prizes include donations from various companies throughout the community. All proceeds from the raffle will benefit the University of Oregon and Oregon State, and Sunset lacrosse programs.

Westview Youth Lacrosse, Beaverton Youth Lacrosse part ways over unresolved differences


Editors Note: Can't we all just play lax? And can't Westview get the same things Sunset already has?

By Joe Fitzgibbon, Special to The Oregonian

March 20, 2010, 4:00AM

Girls' teams from Wilson Youth Lacrosse and Beaverton Youth Lacrosse compete in a match last summer at Jackson Middle School.

BEAVERTON -- Citing ongoing philosophical and management differences, Westview Youth Lacrosse has decided to severe ties with Beaverton Youth Lacrosse this spring and set up a rival program made up of players recruited from within the Westview High School boundaries.

After six weeks of intense meetings with a mediator from Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District, representatives from both organizations said they were unable to resolve their differences and would part ways.
Westview joins Sunset Youth Lacrosse as the second program to break away from the parent organization in the past two years, resulting in the siphoning off of more than 300 players from the Beaverton organization. Beaverton membership stands at about 700.

Bill Kirby, Westview vice president, said he was disappointed with the outcome but that his association would operate independently this season with 10 teams on alternative fields, most of them privately owned.

"We've had a record turnout of players and need to focus on moving forward with our season," he said.

Earlier this year, Westview board members called for replacing Beaverton Youth Lacrosse's single league, which encompasses the Beaverton School District, with a confederation of satellite teams. Each would be aligned with one of the five Beaverton high schools to include names and uniforms that reflected strong neighborhood affiliations.

Beaverton Youth Lacrosse rejected the proposal, instead offering Westview more money to assist with recruiting players, full participation in its Saturday league and representation on the organization's steering committee. Beaverton also insisted -- and Tualatin Hills agreed -- that it be the sole negotiator for use of the park district's fields. That was a particular sticking point for the Westview league.

Westview turned down the offer.

"We feel strongly that what we proposed represented the future of youth lacrosse," Kirby said. "We know that we can recruit more kids to the sport if they play for their neighborhood team."

Since its inception eight years ago, Beaverton Youth Lacrosse has attracted hundreds of boys and girls, from first grade through middle school, who live within the Beaverton School District boundaries.

The organization trained its coaches, provided uniforms, hired officials and rented fields from Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District, under the auspices of a single, districtwide league. This often meant that teams had a mix of players from throughout the area.

But parents in the Sunset and Westview neighborhoods complained that the structure limited the sport's growth and left them out of the decision-making. Several pointed to soccer, baseball and football as youth sports that are organized along high school boundaries.

"We decided to do our own thing two years ago and now have become one of the largest programs in the state," said Mike Parker, a founding member of Beaverton Youth Lacrosse who left that group and is now a coach and board member with Sunset Youth Lacrosse. "Recruiting locally is a natural way to do things."

Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation found itself caught up in the fray over the winter, when it announced that the district would negotiate field rentals only with the Beaverton league, virtually shutting out Westview teams.

"Using one volunteer-based affiliate for each sport is an operating model that has worked successfully for THPRD and the community for decades," district officials announced. The decision angered parents from the Westview league and left them scrambling to find alternative sites for practices and games.

Kirby said his association has negotiated with the Oak Hills Homeowners Association to play home contests on fields at Northwest 153rd Avenue and Oak Hills Drive. Discussions are under way, he added, for use of other privately owned fields in the Beaverton area.

Most area youth lacrosse programs kick off their seasons at the end of this month and early April.

# 7 Oregon Improves to 5-0, Looks Toward Portland State and Michigan

EUGENE, OR. – Oregon men’s lacrosse continued its unbeaten streak Saturday afternoon after
handing northwest rival Washington a 15-3 loss. In the third game of a four game home stretch,
the Ducks took 55 shots on goal and the steady weekend performance helped the team move up
to #7 in the latest national MCLA poll.

In the previous two games against Montana and Santa Clara, the Ducks had struggled to find
rhythm in the first quarter. However, that was not the case Saturday, as the team came out firing on the Huskies and took a 4-0 lead through the first period. Two of the goals came just before penalties, and one came from an outside rip by senior midfielder Erik Lyneis that went in top corner.

Oregon’s ride was hard for Washington to get past, and the Ducks continued to control the flow
of the game after a 3-1 second quarter score. The third quarter brought physical play from both
sides. While the Huskies put in a goal, the Ducks scored three, including a nifty bounce-in shot from junior midfielder Kevin Clark with an assist from sophomore attack Corbin Root. The same story continued for the Ducks in the fourth, as the depth of the team took over and
never let down on the visiting Huskies. Oregon put the game away by controlling the tempo of
the contest and adding five goals to the score, to make the final tally 15-3.

On what was the third weekend of sun for the Ducks at home, Kevin Clark and senior attack
Justin Blackmore contributed a couple hat tricks for the home team, and sophomore midfielder
Chris Kuhn provided an impressive goal on a fast break run in the second quarter. Oregon wraps up its four game home stretch this Saturday against a visiting Portland State team.

The Vikings come will come to Eugene with a lot of momentum after scoring 17 goals in last
weekend’s victory over Humboldt State. After this weekend’s matchup, the Ducks will look to
their Easter Trip that will include games against #1 ranked Michigan in the Patriot Cup in
Dallas, Texas and a contest at Michigan State.

The Ducks and Vikings will faceoff on Saturday, March 13th at 1:00 p.m. at the Next Turf Field.
Check for updates on the game and the upcoming Easter Trip.

Ducks Take Down Broncos, Remain Perfect on the Season

EUGENE, OR. – Oregon men’s lacrosse enjoyed another successful game Saturday afternoon, taking down Santa Clara University by a score of 15-4. In front of a large crowd, the Ducks provided a steady game of offensive pressure by taking 47 shots on the day. After a slow first quarter, the Ducks came out with a 2-0 lead with goals from junior attack Max Schlesinger and senior midfielder Chris Brown. Early on, ground balls were the main issue as the Ducks were still finding their rhythm.

The rhythm was found in the second quarter as the Ducks put up four goals while giving back two to the Broncos. Through one half, the score was 6-2 and the Ducks rested up for what would be explosive third and fourth quarters. In the third, the Ducks took 14 shots on Santa Clara goalie, Luke Kantola, while putting three in the back of the net.

In the fourth, Oregon’s depth and speed proved again to be too much for the visiting team, as the Ducks put in six goals, including a heads up goal at midfield from senior defenseman Mike
Gerrard on an open net. The Ducks outscored the Broncos 6-2 in the fourth, to make the final
score of 15-4 on the day.

Max Schlesinger (three goals, one assist) and senior captain Justin Blackmore (three goals) each provided a hat trick for the Ducks, and Chris Brown added two goals and one assist. Junior
defensive anchor Nick Johnston never let up in goal, providing 11 saves on the day. The Ducks continue their home stretch next weekend in a PNCLL division contest against the University of Washington. The Huskies come into Eugene with a 13-7 win over Boise State in their last game.

The Ducks and Huskies will faceoff on Saturday, March 6th at 1:00 p.m. at the Next Turf Field.

Ducks Start Strong in Seattle

Seattle, WA – The University of Oregon Ducks started their season strongly at the third annual
Pac-10 Shootout at the University of Washington. After playing the Cal Golden Bears (12) and
Stanford Cardinal (23), the Ducks (9) are undefeated heading into their first PNCLL game
against Montana at home.

Saturday, the Ducks played Cal in what was considered by many the game of the week for
PNCLL teams. The teams played even in the first quarter, each scoring two goals but the
aggressive Oregon ride kept possession in their favor for the majority of play. This stifling ride would prove to be a trend for the game and the weekend as the Ducks pulled away in the second quarter and continued to put shot after shot on goal. The University of Oregon put a total of 42 shots on cage and forced the Cal Goalkeeper Forrest Cheney, who had a very good performance in goal, to make 23 saves in the contest. As the game went on Oregon’s depth and their time of possession wore down Cal and proved to be the difference in Oregon’s 14-7 win.

Some top performers for the Ducks were sophomore midfielder Chris Brown (2G, 1A,) sophomore
attackman Sean Silverstein (2G,) and senior captain Brett Whyte who controlled the faceoff
game for the Ducks.

After their big opening win against Cal, Oregon looked to Stanford on Sunday. Similar to the
first game of the weekend, the Ducks’ aggressive ride and team depth would play a major role in
controlling the pace of the contest. Oregon ran three lines of midfielders from the opening
faceoff and controlled the tempo of the game by again keeping possession of the ball for the
majority of play. The Ducks’ had three 2 goal scorers in senior captain Justin Blackmore and
sophomore attackmen Sean Silverstein and Max Schlesinger and came out on top, 12-6.

This coming week the Ducks look to continue their strong start in their first PNCLL Division I
game against the University of Montana, who will be playing their first game of the 2010 season.

The game will be played at the Oregon Nex-Turf field at 1:00 PM, Sunday, February 21. Visit for details.
