The Camas High School (CHS) boys varsity soccer team has been playing very well this season. They have a season record of 8-1-2 and a conference record of 2-1. The team is currently ranked No. 3 in the state, and they plan on making a very deep run in the state playoffs.

“The soccer team as a whole has done pretty well so far this season, only losing one game,” CHS senior Renato Lopez-Aceval said. “Although it was against Union, we found a way to bounce back.”

The team’s only loss came in their game against Union High School on Mar. 28. The papermakers lost 2-1 in overtime. Although the loss was morally dampening, the team came back better and won every single game following the loss. The teams will face off again on April 29 at Doc Harris Stadium. This will be a key match for the papermakers because it is a must-win game if they want to win league.

“This season has been pretty good so far as we have been taking care of business on the field and getting some good results,” CHS sophomore Cooper Schneider said. “We are still working things out but have been playing well.”

With 23 goals so far this season, the team has been quite effective up top. Schneider has been leading the attack, netting eight goals of his own. Although Schneider has contributed a lot to the success of the team, an even larger aspect of the team’s success has been the team chemistry. With a large senior class, many of the boys have been playing together for a long time. This has helped the team power through the season. 

“We’ve been doing great on and off the field,” CHS senior Jayden Alvez said. “Growing together as one and working together to be the best team we can possibly be.”

As the season wraps in the next few weeks, the papermakers are looking forward to having the opportunity to play in the state tournament. After just failing to qualify for the state tournament last year, it is very important to the whole team that they make it far this season. 

“We will fight for the title as best as possible,” Schneider said. “We have high expectations of ourselves and want to win league more than anything right now.”
