Camas soccer spirit defeated, but not broken
Camas girls rise above pitfalls and place fourth in the state tournament
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
The Camas High School girls soccer team endured defeat at the feet of Issaquah and Tahoma in the semifinals and the consolation finals of the state tournament last weekend in Puyallup, but nothing could break their fighting spirit.
“We’re disappointed that the season ended with these two losses, but we made it all the way to the Final Four and that should count for something,” said senior captain Jamie Carter, understanding that the journey endures longer than the end result. “It’s been an amazing trip. A lot of good memories have been made.”
The Papermakers proved they belonged in the Final Four by scoring the first goal in the semifinals against Issaquah Friday, at Sparks Stadium.
Carter fired a promising corner kick, Hailey Rose directed the ball toward the goal and Teylen Sheesley headed it into the net before the opposing goalkeeper could react. Camas took a 1-0 lead into the locker room at halftime, but it wouldn’t last.
