Canby all-league selections
Canby boys soccer all-league
Though the season win-loss record wasn't what the Canby boys soccer team would have wanted, they still made an impression based on the post-season awards.
Topping the list is goalkeeper David Villegas, who took home one of the "big three" Tri-River Conference awards when he was named the Goalkeeper of the Year.
Head coach Ryan McCormack said that based on statistical analysis, Villegas has recorded 8.1 saves per match, "which is really high. As a keeper, David brings the team a lot of confidence for several reasons. First, we know we're going to be able to attack a little more freely because David is going to keep us in games with his amazing reflexes and technique. Second, David is one of the better players on the team with his feet, so offensively, we know we can use him to play through if we get stuck trying to get out of the back. He's also great at distributing long and can hit 50-60 yard balls accurately."
While McCormack couldn't point to a specific play that stood out, he did say that the West Linn game was one he remembered. His keeper had "I think 12 or 13 saves that game against a very talented, eventual league champions, and six of them would make my highlight reel as a spectacular save."
But Villegas wasn't along in getting all-league mention. Vladimir Bernal Lopez was tabbed to the second-team, while Carlos Perez Garcia, Heladio Vera, Samuel Barajas, Riley Hemsi-Walters, and Christian Sanchez Ramirez were all named to the honorable mention list.
