Canby boys soccer coach Ryan McCormack said he felt "conflicted" Tuesday night after the Cougars 5-1 loss at home to Lake Oswego.

"I feel frustrated with the result, but I feel good about how we played," McCormack said. "This is where soccer is one of those cruel games. In the first 30 minutes, I think we had more of the possession. We're probably the better team in those first 30 minutes. Individual mistakes add up."

After the Lakers scored the first two goals of the Three Rivers League contest in the ninth and 18th minute, Canby senior Ian Quinlan got the Cougars on the board, putting the ball in the back of the net in the 21st minute.

But Lake Oswego sophomore Colin Branam answered with his second goal of the game to give the Lakers a 3-1 lead at halftime.

Lake Oswego added a fourth goal in the 62nd minute and then scored again with less than 10 minutes remaining.

"This is part of the rebuild," McCormack said. "It's us learning what consistency every day looks like and we're getting there, but any time there's a rebuild, there's going to be nights like tonight."

Canby goalkeeper Zach Heidema had 12 saves.

Lake Oswego had 19 shots on goal to Canby's 10.

The Cougars possessed the ball for 45 percent of the game.

"Tonight we looked good, too many mistakes in the back and not enough goals up front," McCormack said. "We had some of the longest passing strings that we've had all season. Frustrated with the result, but happy with the progress. If you came in July and saw us and compared to now, it's not even close. It's never fun losing, but positive signs. We're getting there. We're almost there."
