The Lady Wolverine Soccer Team won their league opener at South Eugene last night 6-0 to start the league season at 1-0.
At home, the Varsity Boys Soccer team clawed out a 3-3 tie against pre-season favorite South Eugene! This see-saw battle saw several lead changes during the contest, and was exciting to the final buzzer. The Southwest Conference league rules do not allow overtime in Soccer, therefore, both teams earned points for the tie.
Next up for the Wolverines is Roseburg on Saturday, September 19. Our boys travel to Roseburg, while the girls will host RHS – both games begin at 1 pm!
Congratulations to the new Head Coach Josh Wolfram and the Wolverine Football team for their 30-14 victory over the Gresham Gophers of the Mt. Hood Conference on Friday night.
