Bellevue High School jumped out to a nine-goal lead in the fourth quarter, then held off a late Mercer Island rally as the Wolverines powered to their second consecutive Division 1 boys state lacrosse title with a 14-11 win over rival Mercer Island at the Washington Lacrosse Boys State Championships on Saturday before 2,463 at Memorial Stadium.

"This is what we have worked for all season," said Bellevue coach John Baumann, whose squad finished 21-2-0. "This one's good. It's a great group of seniors."

Senior Cole Johnson and junior Hank Bethke led Bellevue as each had four goals and an assist.

Nathan Hale gets

last-minute winner

Will Snider scored the game-winner with just 33 seconds to go to give Nathan Hale its first boys state lacrosse title as the Raiders came from behind to beat Garfield 7-6 in the Division 2 state title game at Memorial Stadium.

Hale's Ben Joers knotted the game at 6-6 with 10:41 remaining in the fourth to put the Raiders within reach.

"The development that this team has gone through all season is amazing," said Snider, who made an early-morning flight into Seattle after playing with the Major League Lacrosse Denver Outlaws on Friday night.
