The Milwaukie-based Thelo Predators soccer club took second place in the 14U bronze bracket at last weekend's Mt. Hood Challenge.

The Predators went unbeaten through three round-robin matches, outscoring their Friday and Saturday foes by a combined 8-4 count.

Thelo advanced to Sunday's title game where they fell 3-2 in overtime to the Highline Heat.

Corbin Pratt gave the Predators the lead five minutes into the match with a corner kick that curved toward the goal, clipped the goalie's gloves and ended up in the net.

Thelo goalie Noah Martin made three saves in the final minutes of the first half, including one from point-blank range and another diving stop on a free kick from 30 yards out, to send the Predators into halftime with a 1-0 lead.

Highline netted two goals just minutes apart to take a 2-1 lead midway through the second half. Thelo answered when Fernando Romero sent a corner kick to the front of the goal, and teammate R.J. Tansinsin blasted it past the keeper to knot the score with three minutes left in regulation.

Pratt, playing the second half in goal, stopped a Highline breakaway chance in the final seconds to send the match to overtime.

Highline scored the winning goal early in the extra 10-minute session. Thelo nearly sent the match to penalty kicks, but Ben Senffner's shot from 35 yards out just missed the far post in the final minutes.

Caleb Hillard, Shane Ball, Rylan Brown and Pratt all scored twice during the weekend, while Leo Reed and Tansinsin also netted goals.
