Oregon Girls High School Lacrosse Championship

After shooting a recent softball game at Southridge High School I took the opportunity to drift over to the football stadium to shoot the Oregon Girls High School Lacrosse Championship match between Lincoln High of Portland and Lake Oswego High. The match started out during the "golden hour," when the sun is just above the horizon, which provided a very nice warm-toned light. As the match drew into the evening, I went from shooting with great light at ISO 200 to struggling to get a decent shutter speed at IS0 1600 due to the weak stadium lights.

It was a great end-to-end match. The lead changed hands several times throughout the match, but in the end, Lake Oswego scored a "golden goal" in the second overtime to claim the state title. It was a very emotional win for the LO ladies and a crushing blow to Lincoln.
