Broderick nets first-ever O’Dea lacrosse goal in loss to Skyline

SAMMAMISH – Sophomore attackman Korry Broderick connected for O’Dea High School’s first goal as a varsity lacrosse program, but the spark was not enough as Skyline went on to spoil Irish coach and MLL standout Drew Snider’s debut with a 16 – 2 win over the Fighting Irish, Saturday at Skyline High School in Sammamish.

Skyline scored 12 in the first half before Korry Broderick connected for O’Dea in the third and Siam Owen added a follow-up for the Fighting Irish in fourth.

The Spartans’ win was the first for new Skyline High School head coach Sam Hutson.

“The win feels fantastic. It was a great way to start the season,” Hutson said. “I wouldn’t want to open up my season any other way with a strong win against a quality opponent and my good friend Drew Snider.”

Skyline (1-0-0) next faces Bainbridge (0-1-0), Tuesday, March 18 in a 6 p.m. start at Bainbridge High School. O’Dea (0-1-0) next faces Seattle Academy (0-0-0), Wednesday, Marcy 19 in a 5 p.m. start at Upper Genesee Park in Seattle.

The WALAX 2014 Season Preview:

Irish alum, Drew Snider returns to the school he actually attended to become the program's first lacrosse coach. Snider led Nathan Hale to the Division II championship as a coach last season and as a player is a member of the 30-man player pool to make the U.S.A. Men's National Team. No lack of lacrosse knowledge and though new, O'Dea won't lack experience either. Approximately half of the new program played last year in the Garfield program just as Snider did in his HS playing days. Sophomore attack, Siam Owen was Garfield's third leading scorer last year, a squad that lost in the Division II final. O'Dea should challenge immediately for a playoff spot at the Division II level!

Let's go Irish Lax!

The best of East-coast lacrosse has come home to Seattle. Drew Snider, a product of Queen Anne lacrosse, has accepted the inaugural head coach position at O'Dea Boys School. Drew, '06 O'Dea graduate, now Coach Snider, played in the hot-bed of college lacrosse, University of Maryland, and became an All-American who played in two NCAA Menʼs Division I national title games. O'Dea High School welcomes Coach Snider and lacrosse with full varsity status, joining a tradition of excellence and competitiveness.

The lacrosse season begins in Spring, February to May. All across Seattle, fields will fill up with players and gear, boys and girls. And following the path of ubiquitous lacrosse in the East even Wee-Tykes (see Magnolia's program http://www.magnoliaunited.com/) Also see Queen Anne Lacrosse http://www.qalacrosse.org/ and Quick Styx http://www.eteamz.com/QueenAnneQuickStyx/ for lacrosse in our area.

Siam Owen, sophomore at O'Dea, dreams of following Coach Snider's success. So far so good, product of Queen Anne lacrosse, played varsity with Garfield, as Drew did, and looks forward to Coach Snider at O'Dea. Siam will represent O'Dea on the West Coast Starz (WCS), a program Drew has been involved with. The West Coast Starz is the most exclusive and elite club in the west exposing players who aspire to be NCAA level competitors to college recruiting. Siam and the WCS are invited to attend the 2013 Ultimate Performance (UP) Lax Fall Shootout in Maryland (where else?).

Coach Snider continues to play lacrosse with the Denver Outlaws, boasting a 2013 undefeated Major League Lacrosse regular season, and securing a training roster spot on the U.S. Menʼs National Lacrosse Team; but here in Seattle it's "Let's Go Irish Lacrosse!"

O’Dea is pleased to announce Drew Snider (class of 2006) as our Head Coach for the inaugural season of our newest sport, Lacrosse. Competition begins Spring, 2014.
