Hats off to Bravo and the Scots
David Douglas is one of three MHC teams to reach the quarterfinals, hosting Grants Pass on Saturday afternoon
6A BOYS SOCCER
2nd round playoffs
Carlos Bravo could not be stopped Wednesday night, putting together a hat trick to pace No. 7 David Douglas to a 4-1 win over No. 10 McMinnville in the second round of the OSAA 6A boys soccer playoffs.
Bravo converted a penalty shot and a free kick near the top of the 18-yard box to put Douglas up 2-0 at the half. But he saved his most exciting strike for the clincher in the second half a free kick from near the sideline that zipped into the far top corner from 40 yards out to make it 4-0 Scots with 33:35 to play.
Hes deadly on a set piece. He lines up over the ball and if there is any opening, hes going to take it, Scots coach Logan Marquardt said. He has always wanted the big moment.
The win keeps David Douglas on its home field for Saturdays quarterfinals after Grants Pass upset No. 2 South Eugene 1-0.
The Mount Hood Conference has three teams in the OSAAs Elite Eight after Central Catholic came alive in overtime for a 3-1 win over South Salem and Clackamas surprised No. 5 Westview 4-3 also in extra minutes.
