Coon, Frey lead all-Metro League girls team

Sunset, Jesuit lead Metro in honors


by: TIMES FILE PHOTO - Sunset goalie Taylor Luty was named first-team All-Metro League.

They both came up just shy of the 6A pinnacle after regular seasons for the record books.

However, while the Sunset and Jesuit girls' soccer teams couldn't quite take the 6A state championship trophy home, the individual postseason accolades for each respective squad have been abundant.

The Crusaders put defender Lexi Frey, midfielder Ari Hudson, and forward Maddie Kincaid on the first-team all-Metro League team as well as senior defenders Ilyssa Holt, Jessica Bramlett, and goalie Francesca Orlando on the second-team all-Metro squad.

Frey, Holt, Bramlett, and Orlando made up a mingy Jesuit defense that didn't give a goal for 17 straight games before yielding two to Tualatin in a 2-0 6A state semifinal loss that ended Jesuit's season. Kincaid led the Crusaders in scoring, and Hudson was one of the team's leaders in assists.

Frey shared Metro League co-player of the year honors with Sunset defender Taylor Coon who also received a first-team all-Metro League nod. An Arizona State University commit with the speed, power, and strong leg of a forward, Coon guided a young, but skilled Sunset squad that raked through the postseason on their way to the 6A state championship game versus Tualatin.

Despite being the only Metro unit to advance further than the semi-finals, the Apollos only had one additional first-team All-Metro team in senior goalie Taylor Luty. Marlee Leonard, Payten Sonnen, Rose Pflug, Elly Williamson, and Alex Bibo each were named to the All-Metro League second-team.

That supposed slight probably speaks more to the depth of the conference, than a shot Sunset's skill level seeing that each Metro school was well-represented on the all-league ballot.

Westview seniors Jadyn McMillan and Laura Camp were also first-team All-Metro League selections. Both captains were instrumental parts of the Wildcats' squad that went 120 minutes with Sunset in the state semifinals before losing in heartbreaking fashion, 1-0. The 17th ranked Wildcats upset West Linn, Tigard, and West Salem on the road to the semis.

Southridge junior midfielder Andie Giles, and senior captain defender Maddie Misi represented the Skyhawks on the Metro League first-team. Aloha sophomore first-team All-Metro League midfielder Allysa Murphy was a bright spot for a Warrior team that went winless in the Metro League. Beaverton senior first-team all-Metro League forward Robyn Schmutzer helped the Beavers' win their 6A “play-in” game, 3-0, against Century.

Aloha's Laura Nguyen, and Monique Vega, Southridge's Hayley Debois, Beaverton's Inca Gunter, were also second-team all-Metro League picks.
