The Lincoln Cardinals are flying alone as the 2010 boys lacrosse state champions, beating Sunset 10-9 Saturday night at Tualatin High, before a crowd of 3,150.
The Cards, who also won the title in 2008 and finished second last year, let an 8-2 second-half lead over Sunset slip away in the fourth quarter.
But with the teams tied at 9-9 in the second sudden-death overtime, the Cardinals’ Grant Clifford slashed across the center of the field. Clifford sent a forehand shot into the back of the Apollos’ net on one hop for the win.

New Trier senior Chris Sweitzer took a centering pass from junior Mick Parks and snapped an 8-yard strike past Loyola goalie Kevin Steger with 1 minute, 2 seconds remaining to give the Trevians a 7-6 victory and their sixth consecutive Illinois High School Lacrosse Association state championship Saturday at Oak Park High School.
Lacrosse will become an official IHSA state series sport next season. Depending on sectional seedings, the North Shore teams that have faced each other in 10 title games in the 23-year history of the IHSLA might not meet for a crown again.
The Trevians (20-3), who defeated Loyola 9-8 in April, scored on their first three shot attempts and built a 4-1 first-half lead. The Ramblers (19-7) tied it 4-all after scoring three goals in the final 8:34, including two from senior Harry Clarke.

The New Mexico Sports Authority is sponsoring the first New Mexico Lacrosse Face Off in support of enhancing the fastest-growing sport in the country.
The combined Rio Rancho/Cleveland boys lacrosse team, in blue, battles for the ball during a May victory over Sandia Prep. The Rio Rancho team won its second straight state title last month.
A three-day camp will be held June 11-13, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day at Bosque School in Northwest Albuquerque, open to boys and girls from ages 8-18.
The Iroquois Lacrosse Company will conduct an instructional youth camp to motivate and instruct youth participants by voicing stay-in-school messages, cross-training principles, and hands-on instruction for individual and team skill development. Participants will be able to meet some of the most skilled and knowledgeable men of lacrosse: coaches Cam Bomberry, Kevin Sandy and Rio Rancho’s Mike Baker, the city’s former police chief.
Bomberry is the head coach of the Iroquois lacrosse national team and coached junior division teams from 1995-97 and the world championship teams in 2010. He was a part of the first Iroquois national lacrosse team when it won the world championships in Perth, Australia, in 1990.

The Irish led 3-2 after one period, 5-4 at half, 9-6 after three periods and ended up winning 13-8. Notre Dame won it with three goals from Foley, two each from Zach Brenneman, Rogers, Beattie, Steve Murphy, plus single tallies by Neal Hicks and Pat Cotter.
Most of the Fighting Irish players remained on the East Coast after the Monday title game in Baltimore – and then flew to Tokyo from New York. A small contingent of players, coaches, administrators and families flew out of Chicago.
The Irish party will headquarter at the Tokyo Prince Hotel. On Friday and Saturday nights, the Notre Dame players will stay at the homes of their Japanese counterparts. On Saturday the Irish will play the Japan Under-20 team as well as the Japanese National team.
On Sunday, the Irish will take part in the International Friendship Games, again taking on the Japanese National squad. Then, on Tuesday, Notre Dame will play two games against local university teams. The Irish lacrosse groups returns to the United States June 10.
