18U Wolves Rec Soccer Team Advances to State Semi-Finals

Vancouver — The Camas-Washougal Soccer Club’s 18U Wolves team beat Centralia’s Timbers 3-2 in double overtime on Sunday, advancing the newly-reunited team to the State semi-finals in Tukwila, WA next week.

The intense game was scoreless until the second half when Brooks Burns made the match’s first goal. Centralia tied it up soon after. Marshall Braten scored the second goal, and then a controversial PK gave tied up the match.

The Wolves, formerly known as the Cheetahs, reunited this past August to compete one last season before they graduate next June. Coached by Wayne Svilar, the boys played for many years (most since they were six years old) as a recreational team — until they disbanded three seasons ago.

“We made the team to close out our last season to all play on the same team so it is kinda neat to play with all the guys for the last season,” said team member, Josh Harimoto.
