Girls soccer: Wilsonville, Sherwood to meet in pivotal rivalry match


Third-ranked Wildcats host No. 1 Bowmen at 7 p.m. Oct. 17

As third-ranked Wilsonville gears up to host No. 1 Sherwood in an anticipated match with league-title and postseason implications, here’s a look at a rivalry that has heated up over the last two seasons:

  • Wilsonville has an overall record of 7-2-1 and holds first place in the Northwest Oregon Conference with a perfect 3-0 tally. Sherwood (7-1-2, 2-0-1), which played Putnam to a scoreless tie, is second in the league standings.
  • Wilsonville won 4-2 last year to defeat Sherwood for the first time since 2006, ending a nine-game series losing streak. The Wildcats also snapped the Bowmen’s 29-game overall unbeaten streak.
  • The two teams have a combined record of 23-5-4 since last year’s league meeting. Sherwood has lost just twice since last year’s league setback against Wilsonville, both times to Bend-Summit: once in the 2012 state title match and again in a preseason meeting Sept. 3.
  • The rivals faced off in 2011 state finals, when Sherwood prevailed 5-4 in a penalty-kick shootout after 100 minutes of scoreless soccer.
  • Wilsonville enters the match with a six-game winning streak, outscoring those opponents by a combined tally of 24-4. They scored nine goals in a recent rout of St. Helens.
  • Sherwood, last year’s Class 5A runner-up, enters the match with a nine-game unbeaten streak. They’ve outscored those opponents by a combined margin of 28-5.
