Indians boys' soccer waiting for shots to fall
No. 15 Tribe's defense is third-best in Class 4A
It's four ties in a row for the 15th-ranked Indians, but they're preferable to losses.
No. 15 Scappoose played all-state junior defender Colton Carter and sixth-ranked defending Cowapa League champion Seaside to a 1-1 road draw on Tuesday.
The Indians (1-0-4 overall, 0-0-1 Cowapa) are waiting for their shots to find the back of the net.
The Seagulls (3-1-2, 0-0-1), back from the first round, could not break Scappoose's defense.
"This is the first time I've made it out of the preseason undefeated," Tribe coach Scott Stanton said. "Needless to say, I'll take the three draws. However, we definitely had some golden opportunities to win but then botched the finish. We'll spend some time on that and we will be lethal heading into league play."
Scappoose, No. 4 Stayton and Klamath Union tie for second-fewest goals allowed (3) in the state behind seventh-ranked Mazama (1).
The Indians were scheduled to host No. 13 Tillamook (4-2) at 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday at Scappoose Middle School's Chinook Field.
The Cheesemakers and all-league senior defenders Seth Rumage and Ryland Pampush have scored the sixth-most goals in the state (19).
Scappoose is 4-1-1 against Tillamook in the last three years.
