As the fall season continues to press along, there are plenty of goings-on around Clackamas County.

Here are a few of the highlights from last week's action, including a hot-starting soccer team, local champions shining in cross country and another full slate of football results.

Football winners from Week 2

Out of the Three Rivers League teams in Clackamas County, only Lake Oswego sits at 2-0 after Week 2. The Lakers traveled to West Salem and shut out the Titans 14-0 on their own turf. It was the second-consecutive showing of the stout Lake Oswego defense that held Barlow to just 8 points in the season opener. … Wilsonville knocked off Westview, a likely playoff team at the 6A level, in a frantic 49-39 shootout. Wilsonville outscored their foes 21-0 in the fourth quarter to pull off the upset at home. … Clackamas improved to 1-1 on the year with a 34-25 win over Sherwood. … Putnam moved to 2-0 after laying down a 48-19 drubbing on visiting Philomath. … Milwaukie secured a bounce-back win by beating Parkrose 31-13 at home. … Gladstone also got its first win of the year, beating Stayton 33-26 at home. … Nelson went down to Roseburg and played the first half of their game; however, officials canceled the proceedings at halftime due to poor air quality, declaring the matchup a no contest. As a result, the Hawks remain undefeated at 1-0.

Lundgren, Law win at NWOC Preview

Four local schools participated in the NWOC Preview on Wednesday, Sept. 7. While Wilsonville was the highest-placing team on the boys' side, Milwaukie senior Logan Law edged out the Wildcats' Carter Cutting and Mason Weisberger for the top time. In the girls' race, Putnam senior Noemi Lundgren ran away with the win, while La Salle Prep narrowly edged out Wilsonville for second place in the team scoring behind Hood River Valley. Lundgren and Law won the NWOC Preview last year, too, before going on to win district titles.

Falcons stay hot on the pitch

The Falcons have continued their hot start to the season, improving their record to 3-0-1 through the first two full weeks of the 2022 fall campaign. Following wins over Bend and Caldera, as well as a tie with Jesuit, La Salle Prep knocked off their 6A foes from Franklin in a 3-0 win Thursday, Sept. 8. The Falcons were ranked No. 1 in the OSAAToday 5A coaches poll released last week, and the win over Franklin should keep La Salle Prep in the top spot.

Thomas signs pro contract

Former West Linn High School student Khalid Thomas has signed a professional contract to continue his basketball career in Austria. Thomas, who most recently attended Portland State University after previous stops at Arizona State University and College of Southern Idaho, will be playing for the Vienna-based BC GGMT team in the winter. He also participated in different 3-on-3 events over the summer, including playing for Team USA on the U23 national team.
