The Lake Washington boys lacrosse team opened the 2012 season with a dramatic one-point win against the high powered Bainbridge Island team.

The Kangs' season came to an end Wednesday with a one-point loss to the Spartans during the first round of the state playoffs.

Lake Washington got on the board early, scoring a goal during the first quarter. The Kangs took a 1-0 lead into the second quarter where the Spartan offense got on the board.

Lake Washington added to their advantage during the quarter, taking a 5-3 lead into the locker room for half time.

But the momentum that Bainbridge gained just prior to half time carried over the third period as they scored three more and tied the game at 6-6.

The fourth period was a battle to see who would come out on the winning end, just like the teams meeting to start the season. Bainbridge narrowly out scored Lake Washington 4-3 during the final frame to advance in the state playoffs and end the Kangs season.

Lake Washington was led by Hank Schmale with five goals. Kang Cody Bernstein scored three goals and collected seven ground balls on defense. Carson Brown also scored for Lake Washington. Jonah Friedl had 11 saves in goal for the Kangs.

Lake Washington finished in a tie with Skyline for sixth in the league standings with an 8-6 record.
