Thursday local sports news/Blazers add 3 for camp; Oregon State women's soccer off to best start ever; Pilots men fall at Seattle U


Scott Harrington, the 38-year-old former Jesuit High golfer who earned his PGA Tour card with a second-place finish in the August WinCo Foods Portland Open at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club, got off to a strong start on the top circuit.

In the season-opening event, A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, Harrington fired a 6-under-par 64 for a share of second place through one round. He had seven birdies and one bogey. The bogey came on the 16th, and he made his final birdie on the 17th.

Robby Shelton grabbed the lead with a 62. Defending champion Kevin Na, Mark Hubbard, Lanto Griffin and Zack Sucher also went around in 66.

Former Oregon Duck Ben Crane from Beaverton shot 69 and was tied for 73rd.


Portland has signed for training camp center Moses Brown and guards Troy Caupain and London Perrantes.

The 7-1 Brown played as a freshman last season for UCLA. Caupain, 23, got into four games for the Orlando Magic in 2018-19; he played college basketball at Cincinnati. Ferrantes, 24, who wasn't drafted out of Virginia, spent last season playing pro ball in France.


Oregon State 5, HOUSTON 0

The Beavers are 6-0-0 and off to their first start ever.

It's also the first time since 2007 OSU has posted four consecutive shutouts.

McKenzie Weinert scored in the ninth minute. Only 1:36 into the second half, Maddy Ellsworth's goal gave the Beavs a 2-0 lead. Weinert scored again in the 55th minute, and Brianna McReynolds got goals in the 64th and 67th minutes.

Sophomore Bridgette Skiba and senior Lindsay LaMont combined for the shutout in goal. Skiba went 75 minutes and had all four Oregon State saves.

Houston fell to 2-5-0.

CONCORDIA 3, Humboldt State 1

The Cavaliers got goals from Kyra Radcliffe (fourth minute), Mary Swisher (33rd minute) and Radliffe (67th) as they picked up their first win of the season, after two losses.

The Cavs led 21-10 in shots and 10-3 in shots on goal at Tuominen Yard on the CU campus in Northeast Portland.


SEATTLE 2, Portland 0

The Redhawks posted their fourth shutout in five games and defeated the Pilots at Championship Field in Seattle to claim the annual Coffee Cup match.

Noe Meza put Seattle up in the 18th minute with a tricky re-direction at the near post.

Harrison Kurtz scored a rebound goal on a counterattack against the run of play in the 81st minute.

Portland fell to 2-2-1. Seattle is 2-1-2 and was coming off a scoreless draw on Sunday at No. 2-ranked Indiana.

The match included an hour delay in the second half because of a thunderstorm. The Pilots were on the front foot for much of the 35 minutes after the delay, but could not create any clean looks against the stout Seattle defense.

Portland had a series of free kicks and corner kicks during its dominant phase of the match, but Seattle dealt with every ball into its penalty area.

Next for the Pilots is a 5 p.m. PT Sunday match at Wisconsin.

GRAND CANYON 1, Oregon State 0

The Beavers dropped to 3-2-0, while Grand Canyon climbed to 3-1-0 with a goal at 44:33. OSU lead in shots 20-5, 9-3 in shots on goal, and had an 11-1 edge in corner kicks at Phoenix.

CHICO STATE 3, Concordia 1

The visiting Cavaliers fell to 2-1-0, dropping their first road game of 2019.
