On Friday, May 3, the Sisters Outlaws came to town and thumped the Nadzitsaga-Harney lacrosse team 15-2.

“This was probably the poorest game we played all year. We came out flat, and the Outlaws jumped on us and never looked back,” Nadzitsaga coach Rick Roy said. “I would have hoped our team would have been a little more mentally prepared to play. The Outlaws really have our number, as the last three meetings have been very lopsided affairs. We played defense all game long.”
Kinnon Roy and Jordan Daugherty each scored once for Nadzitsaga. Taylor Klus faced a barrage of shots and went 12 of 27 in the cage for a 44 percent save percentage. 
“We struggled at the face off in the first half, but did much better in the second half, going 13 of 21 (62 percent), picked up 23 ground balls and took a total of 18 shots,” Roy said. 
        1  2  3  4   Final
Sis    6   6   3  0    15
Nad   0  0   1  1       2
“Even though this season has been a struggle, to say the least, we still made it into the post season,” Roy stated. “We played well enough during a couple of conference games to get a win or score enough goals to gather some points. We finished fourth in the High Desert Conference, edging out Mountain View, Hermiston and Redmond. This is the fourth year in a row where we have qualified for the conference tournament and the state playoffs.”
Nadzitsaga faces Summit on Wednesday, May 8, in the first round of the conference tournament, and then plays Friday evening at Sisters, facing the winner of the Bend-Sisters game. Harney then travels to Portland on May 15 for the play-in round of the Oregon High School Lacrosse Association’s State Playoffs.
On Saturday, May 4, the Nadzitsaga 5th/6th and 7th/8th grade teams traveled to Warm Springs Reservation to play demonstration games against Sisters as part of the Oregon Native Youth Lacrosse program to introduce and support the expansion of lacrosse within the native communities in Oregon. 
The 5/6th game was a good one, but in the end, Nadzitsaga lost 9-5.
In the 7/8th grade game, Nadzitsaga was over matched by Sisters and lost 11-2.
“I think we have some really good players coming up,” Roy said. “Coach Matt Obradovich has been working hard getting the youth program to grow and improve. I am really excited. We have some really athletic and talented players with lots of potential at the youth level.”
On Tuesday, April 30,  the Nadzitsaga-Harney  lacrosse team met up with No. 13-ranked Bend Lava Bear and lost 10-5. 
“This was a good high school lacrosse game,” Roy said. “We just do not have the depth and enough skilled players to match up with the Lava Bears. This is a hint to all the returning players and the kids coming up from the youth program that they have to invest personal time in the game if they want to be successful on the lacrosse field. As I tell the kids, the lacrosse stick has to be in your hands almost constantly, it needs a place at the dinner table, and you have to sleep with your stick if you want to be a confident and competent player and contribute on the field.”
Roy said his team did a great job on the face-off X, winning 12 of 19, picked up 24 groundballs, did a good job clearing the ball out of their own end (15 of 20 attempts) and took 24 shots.
“I thought our team defense and our defensive unit of Jacob Steinbeck, Michael Johnson, Zan Rickman and Seth Campbell was very solid,” Roy said.  
K. Roy led the offense scoring all five goals, picked up 17 groundballs and won the vast majority of the faceoffs. 
Klus was outstanding in goal, stopping 19 of 29 shots on goal for a 65.5 percent save percentage.

On Saturday, April 6, the Hellgate, Mont., Knights returned the favor from last season and defeated Nadzitsaga-Harney on its home turf with a 12-6 victory.

“Hellgate was the 2012 Montana Lacrosse Association Champion,” Nadzitsaga coach Rick Roy said. “Their only blemish on the 2012 season was a 22-17 loss to Nadzitsaga.”
Hellgate came to the high desert for a three-game road trip during its spring break.
“I thought we played well and competed hard. Our kids were really excited to meet up with the Knights, and I am sure they were determined to exact a little revenge from last year. We have just lost too much firepower and experience from graduation, and we are made up primarily with new players. Some of these new players need to step it up and take on more responsibility. They need to contribute on the field.
“I think we did a better job fighting for the ground balls in this game, picking up 24 loose balls,” Roy added.
Nadzitsaga took 29 shots and won seven of 19 faceoffs.
Kinnon Roy paced the offense, scoring five goals and an assist. Andrew Houck scored once, and Jordan Daugherty had two assists.
Taylor Klus was strong in goal, stopping 20 of 32 shots on goal for a 62.5 percent save percentage.

Nadzitsaga-Harney was back in action Tuesday, April 9, playing conference foe Mountain View High School in Bend.
The team travels to Portland to take on Rex Putnam High School Friday, April 12, and Hillsboro High School Saturday, April 13.
On Wednesday, April 3, the Summit Storm lacrosse team defeated Nadzitsaga-Harney 14-4.  
“I thought we played well. We were obviously out-gunned, and there were some periods where we had some lapses, but overall I was pleased with the effort,” Roy said.  “We had some good possessions on offense, good defensive stands, very good goalie play and did well on face offs. We are a young and inexperienced team, and it shows.”
Nadzitsaga took 33 shots on goal, picked up 19 groundballs and won 11 of 19 face offs. 
K. Roy scored two goals and had an assist for Harney, and Houck scored twice. 
Klus was solid in goal, stopping 25 of 39 shots on goal for a 64 percent save percentage.
