Sometimes you’ve just got to roll with what you’ve got. That’s the theme for West Linn at this point in the season. Playing without many of their top players due to various issues, the Lions went with the roster on hand and still put together an inspired effort to roll past Lakeridge, 55-28, for the victory.
West Linn was missing normal starters Bryson Crockett, who injured his knee against Lake Oswego, and Micah Garrett and Damiko Tidmore, who did not play due to coach’s decision. But led by senior Oreon Courtney and Joe Juhala, the Lions raced out to a 8-0 lead and never looked back. It was a good defensive performance from West Linn as Lakeridge struggled with turnovers and only shot 8-for-38 (.236) from the field in the loss.
