Jackson boys lax shocks Timberline in playoffs

Jackson boys lax shocks Timberline in playoffs

Underdogs of Idaho league make the most of debut in William T. McIntosh Stadium.

By Chance Q. Cook May 19, 2021

Wyoming is not a lacrosse state, but on Saturday afternoon you’d have had a hard time convincing the Jackson Hole varsity boys team of that fact.

Jackson got its first opportunity to play the sport inside William T. McIntosh Stadium, as visiting Timberline from Boise, Idaho, kicked off the opening round of the Idaho High School Lacrosse League state playoffs. That stadium erupted, much in the same way it would erupt for a football game or a soccer match, when the final horn went off and Jackson shocked the Wolves with an 8-5 victory.

“It’s so big. We’ve always had an uphill battle with this Idaho league,” Jackson’s George Gervais said. “We’re not just that team from Jackson. We’re legit. People have to worry about us, and we’re a force to be reckoned with.”

With that, Jackson will be playing in the Idaho state semifinals on Thursday. A win there, and Jackson will advance to Saturday’s state championship.

1. When our son was playing, Timberline was usually tough (and nasty)

They could be beaten though.

2. I guess Jackson would have to travel so far to find another team in Wyoming that

it might as well be in an Idaho league.

Thanks for writing.

3. Everything's far in Wyoming, except the wind.

Good on Jackson.
