6 Minutes End Ontario Girls Soccer Season

ONTARIO – For 74 minutes, the Ontario girls’ soccer team was flawless in the state play-in game versus the visiting Newport/Eddyville Charter Cubs. The Tiger defense held the Cubs scoreless while the offense put a goal on the board in the second half.

The bad news for the Tiger girls and the good news for the Cub girls was six minutes still remained on the clock. As two goals found the net for Newport/Eddyville Charter, Ontario dropped out of contention for a state title in a 1-2 loss.

The first half went scoreless for both teams. With just over a minute off the clock in the second half, Ontario was on the board after a goal by Jayden Mireles.

The Ontario defense continued to hold the Cubs offense without a goal until 6 minutes, 3 seconds showed on the clock. Newport/Eddyville Charter’s Hannah Gordon blasted through the middle of the Tiger defense and tied the score at a goal apiece.

It was Gordon again with under two minutes left in the match giving the Cubs the lead and the win.

With the clock winding down, the Tigers were unable to force the game to penalty kicks.

Ontario closes out the season with a 4-9 overall record and a 4-2 4A Greater Oregon League record. The Tigers finished second in league play.
