CALDWELL — After blowing out the majority of its opposition, the Lake City High lacrosse team found itself in somewhat of a unique situation in Saturday's Division II state championship game.
It didn't have a sizable lead.
Capital High of Boise trailed by just a goal heading in the second period, but the Timberwolves soon flipped the switch and coasted to another rout at Simplot Stadium, a 16-3 decision.
Lake City (14-2), which led 3-2, scored seven second-period goals and didn't look back.
Matt Duchow had his hand in nine of Lake City's scoring plays, tallying five goals and four assists. Cameron Chun and Sam Buckland each recorded a hat trick.
Lake City goalie Lucas Briner was also instrumental, protecting the gate to the tune of 11 saves.
