First Report

Lakeville South boy's lacrosse dominated the second half at home, beating Owatonna 11-6 at Lakeville South High School on Saturday to advance to the Section 1 final.

The Cougars (7-8) looked like they were going on a big run scoring three unanswered goals. However, the Huskies pulled one back to make it a 3-2 game before the first quarter ended.

In the second quarter, Lakeville South went up by two goals again with a score from Skyler Rust to start the frame.

Owatonna (12-3) went on a three-goal run of its own in the second quarter to take a 5-4 lead going into halftime.

The third quarter, however, was pivotal for the Cougars as they outscored the Huskies 4-0 to take control of the game for good. David Byers scored two of his four goals in the third quarter. Max Dunham assisted twice and added a goal of his own during the Cougars’ run.

Owatonna goalie Ryan Johnson made 11 saves, including eight in the first half. He was replaced by Kenneth Johnson due to an injury with 4:25 left in the third quarter.

Lakeville South entered the final quarter ahead 8-5. The Cougars outscored the Huskies 3-1 in the fourth quarter to seal its spot in the section final, which will take place next Wednesday against the winner of Lakeville North versus Rochester Century.
