Lady Bowmen set to play for the TRL title
SHERWOOD — No, it wasn't a win.
But the Sherwood High School girls soccer team set itself up for a chance to win something else — the Three Rivers League championship.
The Lady Bowmen, on Tuesday, battled West Linn to a 1-1 tie in a Three Rivers League game played at Sherwood High School.
With the tie, West Linn, which also had league title aspirations going into the match, finished its TRL slate at 5-1-2 (10-2-2 overall). Sherwood moved to 5-0-2 in TRL play (8-2-3 overall), keeping the Lady Bowmen in first place in the league standings.
Sherwood can wrap up the league title today (Thursday), when it plays at Tualatin in a TRL finale starting at 7 p.m. The Lady Bowmen will claim the league crown with a win or a tie in today's contest.
However, if Tualatin (5-1-1 in TRL play) wins today, then the Timberwolves will capture the league title.
West Linn, in Tuesday's match at Sherwood, took a 1-0 lead when senior Lauren Adelman scored on a penalty kick with 23 minutes and 8 seconds left to play in the first half.
The Lady Bowmen got the equalizer when sophomore Loma McNeese scored off an assist by junior Kolleen Peters with 19:27 left to play in the contest.
The Sherwood boys soccer team, on Tuesday, battled West Linn to a 2-2 tie in a league match played at West Linn High School. The tie gives the Bowmen a 1-2-3 mark in TRL play, and an overall record of 4-5-4.
Sherwood will conclude its league schedule today, when it hosts Tualatin in a 7 p.m. match. The Bowmen still look to be in the running to earn a Class 6A state playoff berth. But, more likely, Sherwood will find itself in a play-in match on Tuesday, with the winner of that contest moving on to the Class 6A state playoffs.
