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.

Trent Johnson was the leader with 13 points. The Boys’ Junior Varsity Basketball team last night lost a tough one in overtime to Skyview.  The final score was Skyview 60, Camas 59.  Offensively the team was led by Josh Ryan with 13 points.  Other contributors were McKinley Lefore with 10 points, Jordan Anderson with 9 points, Cole Zarcone with 8 points, Andre Delosrios and Tanner Halcumb each chip in with 6 points.

The Freshman Boys’ Hoops team put together a fine comeback victory over Skyview last night to open the 4A league season. The score was 60–57.  Trailing by as many as 9 in the second half, the young Papermakers turned to their defense to turn around the score.  Loose balls, steals, and deflections were created by Blake Roy, Alex McOmie, Quentin Lebeau, Brock Fielding, among others.  Ethan Unger poured in 17 points, and Cameron Vega hit 2 clutch free throws in the final seconds in addition to his buzzer beating 3 earlier in the game.  Over winter break the boys finished their nonleague season with a 10 – 0 record and are now 11 – 0 overall.

Boys Wrestling:  The wrestling team fought hard last night against a tough Evergreen squad.  Seniors Austin Miller, Dakota Safford, and Vicente Huber all earned big wins.  Huber and sophomore Talon Edmiston both bumped up one weight class and earned victories to put the team ahead 33-30 with two matches to go.  It ended up not being quite enough as the team lost by a final score of 42-33.  The JV tied Evergreen 15-15, and the lone member of the girls’ wrestling team in action last night, Erin Tulley, lost in the second period.  The wrestlers are back in action tomorrow in Kelso and Chehalis.
