Girls lacrosse: Lakeside edges Bainbridge Island for fourth straight title
Lucy Williams' goal in double overtime gave Lakeside its fourth consecutive girls Division I state lacrosse title with a 14-13 victory over Bainbridge, and Mercer Island beat Issaquah for the Division II championship.
SAMMAMISH — Lucy Williams scored with 1:01 remaining in double overtime to give Lakeside its fourth consecutive girls Division I state high school lacrosse title with a 14-13 victory over Bainbridge Island Saturday at Eastside Catholic.
It was the seventh Division I state championship for the Lions, tying them with Bainbridge for the most.
Lakeside held Bainbridge to its second-lowest score of the season.
The winning goal came with time winding down in the second overtime, as Williams caught a crisp Emmy Armintrout pass in front of the net and fired a shot past Spartans goaltender Josefine Wallace.
"Emmy told me, 'Lucy, you need to get open', so I made a cut and was lucky she made a great pass," said Williams. The goal was the second of the afternoon for the second-team all-state selection.
Bainbridge trailed 9-4 before scoring five unanswered goals to tie it.
"Coming back from a five-goal deficit was quite a momentum changer. I'm proud of my girls for doing that," said Bainbridge coach Tami Tommila.
In the first overtime, Lakeside's Katrina Carlsen beat Wallace with just 44 seconds remaining, but Jaclyn Biggers scored with 5 seconds remaining, to force the second overtime.
Mercer Island nets first girls state lacrosse title
Loreal Camp scored five goals and collected six ground balls to lead Mercer Island to a 14-8 win over Issaquah in the Division II final for the Islanders' first girls lacrosse state championship.
The Islanders held the league's second-leading scorer, Katie Mincin, in check most of the game. Mincin, who averaged more than six goals per game in the regular season, beat goaltender Helen Hansen just three times.
Hansen recorded 25 saves — 17 in the second half.
