On his seventh goal of Friday's lacrosse game against Cleveland, senior attacker Chris Reidl, scored on a behind-the-back drive from the top of the crease.
"The coaches had told us to stop scoring," he said. "They said we should shoot left-handed."
But Reidl scored yet again, to give him a season-high eight goals and to help the Hood River Valley Lacrosse Team to a 28-0 victory.
Hood River Valley improved to 11-1.
Reidl's previous career-high had been five.
Zach Bohince had six goals and three assists. David Voigt had five goals and four assists.
The blowout provided a good transition for the Eagles next away game at 13-1 league leading Lincoln, which handed Hood River its only loss of the season. The Eagles lost that one 9-4 on April 4.
"Our chances of beating them are good," said Mac Jackson, coach of Hood River's lacrosse team. "If we keep playing our style of lacrosse, they're good. Last time we got stagnant on the offense and also on the defense."
Lincoln is just one formidable team Hood River faces in its last three regular-season games of the season.
The Eagles' Friday game will introduce them to undefeated Oregon Episcopal School, which handed Lincoln its only loss of the season.
