The Division 2 Bonney Lake lacrosse team has started its third season with a 5-1 record after an upset win in overtime against Division 1 Rogers High School.

The Friday night contest was played on the Bonney Lake High School field.

The Panthers gave up three quick goals to an aggressive Rogers offense. Then the Panthers staged a comeback and tied it 6-6 at halftime led by goals from senior midfielders Justin Elsworth and Vincent de Leon.

In the second half, senior captain defenseman Reilly Nelson scored three goals to widen the score 10-6 in the third period. He finished the night with four points and led the team with eight ground balls.

In the fourth period, Rogers tied the score at 11-11 to force overtime.

Senior captain Seth Rice, a first-year goalie, had a shoestring save to start the beginning of OT. The Panthers took possession of the ball and transitioned it to an open Derek Jacobson for the game-winning goal.

The Panthers take on Stadium at home today, Wednesday, before playing four straight road games.
