The Stanwood Spartans boys lacrosse team took on the Snohomish Panthers in a dominate game from beginning to end, on March 24 at Haller Middle School.

From the start to the finish Stanwood looked like the better team on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. They played more physically, displayed an incredible amount of chemistry and looked to be the more efficient team overall. After an incredible performance, the Spartans came out on top with a score of 15-3.

"The thing that separates us is the heart and they all want it really bad. They are super aggressive and it all starts with the seniors there, and they are very hungry to go a long way. There is a vibe in the team and they are getting after it," said Stanwood Head Coach Garry Hartzell.

Ty Heuer and Tyler Rich took over on the offensive end for the Stanwood Spartans. Heuer finished with a game-high in goals, with a total of six, while also adding an assist and four ground balls. Rich scored three goals for himself, as well as three assists and six ground balls.

On the defensive end, one player stood out above the rest, Payton Greene. Greene was the only player to record double-digit ground balls, with a total of 11, as well as scoring one goal to add to his production.

If you want to check out the next home game for the Spartans, they will be facing Bellingham at Stanwood High School on Thursday, March 30, at 6 p.m.

The Stanwood Lacrosse Club, which has players from Stanwood, Lakewood and Arlington, needs the support of the local community and several other communities as they are trying to develop more participation in Arlington and Lakewood. By 2019, the Stanwood club is being forced to split and the players from other high schools need programs in order to be able to continue to compete.
