They never stopped scoring and they never stopped winning.

And in response, they — Oregon's best high school girls soccer players — have been honored with all-state recognition for the 2021 fall season.

Among this year's selections was Wilsonville senior forward Lindsey Antonson, who was recently named the Class 5A Player of the Year.

During her final Wilsonville campaign, Antonson led the Falcons to a Northwest Oregon Conference championship, four straight playoff wins and the Class 5A state title (a 4-2 victory over La Salle).

Along the way, the Wildcats posted a 18-0-1 overall record, with Antonson scoring 51 goals as a senior — the third-highest single-season total in state history — and finishing her career with a state-record total of 139.
