In the crisp autumn air under the stars at Doc Harris Stadium, the Papermaker girls soccer players put the finishing touches on a second straight league title.
Sophomores Mackenzie Amos and Rachel Gibson polished off a couple of corner kicks from senior Olivia Lovell for Camas goals. The Papermakers held on to beat Kelso 2-1 Oct. 25, to clinch the league championship.
“It’s exciting to help the seniors win on Senior Night,” Amos said. “I was just in the right place at the right time.”
Lovell doesn’t mind assisting her teammates, just as long as Camas scores the goals.
“A goal is a goal. Anyway it gets in is nice,” she said. “It felt like our backs were against the wall as soon as last year ended. Nobody expected us to win league after we lost all those seniors, but we knew we could get it done if we were all willing to put in the hard work to get there. It quickly became apparent to all of us that we wanted to become league champions again.”
