Facing defending state champion Columbia River at the new Doc Harris Stadium Thursday gave the Camas High School girls soccer players plenty of motivation.
Head coach Roland Minder had only a few words of inspiration, but they were important.
“Listen up,” he said in the huddle. “Nobody comes into your house and pushes you around.”
The Papermakers were pumped from the get-go, while the Chieftains appeared overmatched. Camas scored two goals within the first seven minutes of the game, and cruised to a 2-0 victory.
“We’ve been looking forward to this game,” said senior co-captain Raya Klein. “It felt good to come out and put together a good performance on our home field.”
