Tuesday, May 21, 2013
Camas soccer fans could feel the magic as the Papermakers defeated the Skyline Spartans in a shootout during the first round of the state tournament May 14, at Doc Harris Stadium.
"The spectator's got their money's worth. No question," said head coach Roland Minder. "I hope this win teaches them to have confidence, and to play all out until the end. We can still dig deeper."
Nate Beasley, Austin Cassity, Calvin Goon, Sam Pizot and Cayne Cardwell delivered the penalty kick goals for Camas. Skyline answered the bell four times, but Papermaker goalkeeper Sharif Batroukh denied the Spartans on their fifth and final attempt and the victory belonged to Camas.
"They're a great team. We were neck-and-neck the whole way," Batroukh said. "To come out of that game with a win was a miracle. It's an amazing feeling, but the road is not over."
