The Canby boys soccer team hosts Portland-Westview in a Class 6A play-in game Oct. 29 at Cougar Stadium.
The winner advances to the first round of the Class 6A playoffs to face a to-be-determined opponent.
The Cougars (3-9-2), who earned ties in their final two league games, defeated Westview (6-7-1) in preseason play with a 3-2 decision.
Canby, which has not won a playoff game since 1999, has reached the state playoffs in each of the last four seasons and in five of the last six but has been eliminated in the first round each time.
It lost to Lake Oswego in 2007, came up short against West Salem in 2009, stumbled against McMinnville in 2010, fell to Westview in 2011 and crumbled against Central Catholic last season, giving up 22 combined goals in those five first-round appearances.
