The Wood River lacrosse team won its first game Saturday, beating Mountain View 8-6 in a hard-hitting game at Jabil Field in Meridian. Juniors David Dredge and Robbie Jost tallied two goals and one assist apiece. Luke McNees contributed a goal and an assist. Nick Chase, Gus Englehardt and Tracy Bailet (1 assist) also found the back of the net to help the team to its first win under coach Dave Hennessy.
"They played well," Hennessy said. "They were smart and physical, which was important."
The young Warriors (1-5) spread out the scoring with two goals in each of the four quarters and limited Mountain View to a single goal in the final frame. Goalie Daniel Cortez finished with eight saves.
'The defense had a good fourth quarter," Hennessy said. "And midfielder Robbie Jost had a really good game."
