Last week summaries: 

Below you will find results from last week on how the Oregon City teams fared.


Boys and Girls Cross Country (Head Coach Brandon Lee, assistant Coach Brent Eggers)

The OC cross country team put out their best effort against the West Lions at home on Wednesday, and it showed, as a majority of the Pioneers ran their fastest 5k ever.


West Linn boys are ranked number #1 in the TRL but that didn't stop Max Reed from taking control of the race at the start line. Max took first place in the Varsity Boys 5000m race. Followed by Sam Brito and Jonathan Schaffer. All three of these runners have put themselves onto the ALL-TIME list for our school. Max is now ranked #30 in school history. While Sam and Jonathan placed themselves #37 and #38 on the list of the Top 50 runners. Although their individual performances were spectacular they dropped the dual vs West Linn 26-31. All of our Varsity runners ran season bests. JV boys had some great performances: Colin Cougle (freshman), led our crew with a 35 second improvement, running 19:20. Sophomore Jamie Bryant (58 seconds PR) and Senior Dylan Magana (42 seconds PR) also scorched our home course.


West Linn Girls are equally tough. Katie Schroeder raced with the leaders for 3 miles as she led all Pioneers with a season best time of 21:31. Shaylee Cooper ran sub-22 mins for the first time. Brynne Shroufe, absent from racing for nearly a month, was back at it finishing in the 3rd spot on the team. Freshman Ellen Crooks improved by almost 2 minutes in front of our home crowd while Senior Makenna Palumbo erased almost a minute of her seasons best time. Our top JV Girl finishers were Junior Kelby Beyer, Freshman Brianna DeLeon, and Junior Zoe Kleiner. Freshmen Norah Beck and Delaney Reed both knocked more than a minute off their previous best 5k times in the JV race.


The Pioneers will run again Wednesday October 10th at Oregon City High School. The team competes against Lakeridge, Tigard and St Mary’s.


Girls Soccer (Head Coach Marshall Brewer, assistant coaches Joey Leonetti, Casey Clegg, Chelsi Brewer, and Stephen Berry)

Varsity- The Lady Pioneers dropped two games last week to fall to 2-6-1 overall and 0-2 in league play.


Against Lake Oswego (5-2 loss) Kiera O’Malley scored off a Haley Craig cross. Nevaeh Taylor score after

chasing down a loose ball in the open field going one on one with the goal keeper.


Against West Linn the team changed a few things around and it proved to work.  Playing the number two team in the state in West Linn the Lady Pioneers battled in the first half and trailed 1-0.  The depth of West Linn proved to be to much as the final score had West Linn on top 4-0.  The girls played their best game of the year Thursday night.


The Pioneers will play Tuesday, October 9 when they travel to Lakeridge (7:00 start) and are on the road Thursday, October 11 at Tigard (7:00 start).


JV- Last Tuesday evening the girls traveled to Lake Oswego where they were outscored 4-1 by the Lakers, Sophomore Mallory Hugo scored the Pioneers lone goal.  On Thursday they hosted the West Linn Lions resulting in a 2-0 loss 2-0.  Freshman goalkeeper Joelle Robeson had a wonderful save on a penalty kick shot West Linn.  Coach Clegg commented "I think the girls played their best soccer of the season!"


The Pioneers will play Tuesday, October 2 when they travel to Lakeridge (4:30 start) and are on the road Thursday, October 11 at Tigard (5:00 start).


JVII- The Oregon City JVII Lady Pioneers won all three games last week to extend their season opening winning streak to nine games with a record of 9-0-0. The JVII’s opened the first of the three games at Tualatin High School 4-0 last Monday. The Lady Pioneers got first-half goals from Freshmen Jordyn Craig and Raegan Yates, while Sophomore Ava Newbury and Freshman Abbey Setter scored goals in the second half. Setter ended the game with one goal and two assists. Freshman Goal Keeper Sophie Barr recorded two saves to earn the shutout victory.


 Last Wednesday, the JVII’s completed a three-game season sweep of Lake Oswego High School in a 3-0 victory. Freshman Harley Daniel scored her first goal of the season in the first half and Freshmen Jordyn Craig and Sydney Brown each scored in the second half. Sophomore Goal Keeper Caroline Benson recorded a season-high six saves in her fifth shutout.


The JVII’s ended the week with a 3-1 come-from-behind win against St. Mary’s Academy on Friday. After trailing 17 minutes into the match, Freshman Anya Remsburg headed in a goal 10 minutes later to tie the game before halftime. Freshman Sydney Brown scored her third goal of the season at the 58-minute mark to give the Lady Pioneers the lead and Remsburg added in her team-leading fifth goal of the season to cap the scoring. Freshmen Jordyn Craig and Harley Daniel ended the match with two assists each. Sophomore Goal Keeper Caroline Benson recorded four saves in the win.

Boys Soccer (Head Coach Ian Feldt, assistant coaches Edgar Mora Mendoza, Dave Jordal, and Alvin Salazar)

The Oregon City boys are starting to find their form as they started league play against Lake Oswego last Tuesday. Lake Oswego struck first to make it 1-0 but a goal by Ashton Johnson in the second half tied it up 1-1.  Lake Oswego looked like it started to take control with two more second half goals for a 3-1 lead. But a goal from Adimire Ulinwa, and a penalty kick by Lorenzo Lopez with 1:42 left in the game lead the Pioneers to a 3-3 draw over the highly ranked Lakers.
