Lacrosse: Snoqualmie’s Smith accomplishes something special, plus other lax news…..

Good morning. Light morning today, but we do have news from lacrosse on this Thursday for you.

It was a special night last night for one Valleyite, as he scored his first goal as a collegian in men’s lacrosse. But that special moment proved to be one of only a few highlights on the night as his team was blown out on the road.

The University of Dallas men’s lacrosse squad suffered the 26-4 blowout loss at the hands of host Southwestern University in a non-conference clash in Georgetown, TX. Freshman Tyler Smith, from Snoqualmie and a 2016 Mount Si HS grad, scored one of the four Dallas goals in the contest, and his tally, early in the second half, was the first of his college career after a successful high school career with Mount Si’s boys’ lacrosse program. Smith also recorded an assist, forced a turnover on defense, and also had four “ground balls” in the contest.

UDallas dropped to 1-2 on the season with the loss. They open their home schedule Saturday afternoon in Dallas, TX, against visiting Alma from Michigan.

Also from lacrosse today:

UPS men fall in season opener: Last weekend, the University of Puget Sound’s men’s team fell in a heartbreaker 9-8 to Portland State down in Portland, OR, as the Loggers opened their season. Mount Si High School alum Andrew Zinkan, from North Bend, saw action for UPS in the game. He did not score any goals or record any assists, but logged two “ground balls.” The Loggers are at Gonzaga and Washington State this weekend.

Boise men fall at BYU: Also last weekend, Boise State’s men’s team dropped a contest at Brigham Young, 19-3. Alex Burns, also a MSHS alum from North Bend, played for the Broncos in the contest, with no stats of note reported.
