Glencoe Girls Advance to Second Round with 2-1 Road Win Over West Salem

Success in the OSAA State Soccer Championship playoffs has been elusive for the Glencoe Girls soccer program since its origin in 1980.  With barely a handful of playoff wins throughout the years, travelling to Salem to take on the number 11 seed West Salem Titans in the first round of the OSAA 6A playoffs as a number 22 seed seamed to be a daunting task.  However, behind solid net minding from the Tide's second team all league Junior goalkeeper Caitlin Kastelic and two goals from Freshman Celeste Molina Sanchez, Glencoe fought through physical play in midfield and a torrential downpour in the second half to defeat West Salem 2-1.

Tide Washes Out of Playoffs in First Round to West Salem

The Glencoe Tide soccer team lost 2-1 in extra time to West Salem in the OSAA 6A State Soccer Playoffs on the Titans' black turf.  The Tide took control of the match early in the first half and narrowly chances very early in the match that would have set West Salem back on their heals.  With most of the first half being played between the penalty boxes, it was the Tide that got the first lead in the match with 10:01 to play when a free kick at mid-field taken by Glencoe defender Jose Sanchez deflects off West Salem midfielder Joshua Bailey for an own goal.  Midway through the second half Glencoe goalkeeper Toby Hodges was called for a foul on West Salem forward Cole Caldwell allowing the Titans to even the match 1-1 off the resulting penalty kick by Stuart Aeschliman.  With regular time ending in a tie, West Salem came out in the first overtime period with a goal in the first minute off a header by Tyler Ballenger.  Glencoe struggled to muster a counter to the go-ahead goal and for a second year in a row stepped out of the playoffs with disappointment in the first round.

Rain and Touchdowns Pour on Barlow in Oregon City

The rain never let up at Pioneer Stadium in Oregon City and neither did the flow of touchdowns against Barlow by Oregon City High School in a lopsided 65-7 Mt.
