Oregon men’s lacrosse defeated Oregon State, 16-10, on Sunday in its second game of this weird season. It was the first Civil War meeting of the year between the two programs that are located roughly 47 miles away from one another in the Beaver State.
The Ducks carried a comfortable 11-5 lead with them into halftime and continued their hold on the game into the second half, not allowing Oregon State to get itself back into the contest and completing the six-goal victory.
While the game was closed to the public, a select few photographers were lucky enough to witness the first Civil War of 2021. We’ve put together a gallery of some of the photos that highlighted the action that took place in Eugene, Oregon, over the weekend.

Get Ready for Civil War Part II
Oregon and Oregon State men’s lacrosse teams were set to take each other on yet again this weekend for the second round of the 2021 Civil War, but the game has been postponed due to COVID-19 protocols. The aim is for the game to be played the following weekend, but that’s not set in stone. But the goal will be to play the second iteration of this great rivalry at some point this season.
The Civil War is one of the oldest and most heated rivalries in all of college athletics, dating back to 1894 when Oregon and Oregon State’s football teams first met on the same field. The heat between the two may have started on the football gridiron, but it has expanded to all other athletics and even academics in the more than a century since the beef began.
No matter what Oregon and Oregon State are competing in, you can guarantee there will be fire, so when the men’s lacrosse teams share a field in the MCLA, you can expect some tension.
