MHC SOCCER - Barlow beats Centennial with late goal
by: David Ball, Gresham's Adrian Buturoaga dribbles toward the goal during the first half Tuesday against Reynolds. He scored the tying goal with 10 minutes to play.

The Gresham boys soccer team salvaged a 1-1 tie with Reynolds on Tuesday afternoon when Adrian Buturoaga found the net with 10 minutes to play.

The senior midfielder dribbled into the right corner and tried to pass a ball to a teammate in the center of the 18-yard box, but the ball was deflected back outside. Buturoaga was in position for a quick strike that sailed past a diving Reynolds goalie, hit the far post and bounced into the net for the equalizer.

The Raiders took their lead off a corner kick in the opening minute of the second half when Tony Plaucarte-Benson redirected the ball into the right side of the goal.

Raiders' goalie Josue Coreas maintained the tie with a save on a hard-hit ball, which he controlled at the goalline as the final whistle sounded.

In other Mount Hood boys action, Max Babson scored the game-winner in the 75th minute to lead Barlow past Centennial 3-2.

Girls play was highlighted by Gresham, which earned a 2-0 shutout against Reynolds. St. Mary's also picked up a shutout, blanking Centennial 3-0 at Delta Park.
