The Tribe beat Tillamook 14-0 for its third shutout in a row — its seventh of the year — and its second season sweep on Tuesday at Scappoose Middle School's Chinook Field.

The Indians (6-3-2 overall, 6-1 Cowapa League) also beat the host Cheesemakers (0-11, 0-7) 11-1 in the first game on Sept. 22.

The Tribe can go for its third season sweep as it hosts Banks (5-4-2, 4-3) at 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 18.

Scappoose also has a rematch at No. 2 Valley Catholic, which won the first match 1-0 on Sept. 29, at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20.

"I'm looking forward to the hardest week of league," Indians junior midfielder Mackenzie Ela said. "We've been practicing our combination plays a lot this past week, and hopefully that will translate to beating Valley on their home turf."

The Tribe beat the Braves, who feature all-league talents in senior defender Samantha Pestner and sophomore forward Aspen Slifka, 4-0 on the road on Sept. 27 and have won the last seven meetings by an average of 5-1.

Scappoose, the 2013 and 2015 Class 4A state champion, is 3-1-1 against the Valiants since they won the Class 3A/2A/1A state title in 2013 and claimed the Class 4A crown in 2014.

The Indians bounced Valley Catholic from the state semifinals last year.

The Valiants unleash all-league stars in junior midfielder Taylor Menkens, junior goalkeeper Noelle Mannen and sophomore forward Kate MacNaughton.

The Tribe's 41 goals scored is the fifth-most in the state behind Valley Catholic (46), No. 1 North Valley (50), fourth-ranked Molalla (53) and seventh-ranked Brookings and ninth-ranked North Bend (T-69).

Scappoose's six goals allowed is third to Molalla (3) and No. 5 Cascade (2).

"We are looking for overall composure, taking the little details we have been working on and adding it into our play," Indians junior goalkeeper Alyssa Bakkensen said. "The Valley Catholic game should be our peak in league, as we plan to hopefully secure the Cowapa title heading into playoffs."

The league champion qualifies automatically for state.

"We will be working on a high-pressure offense and being creative in our final third to find the net," Tribe coach Summer Jark said. "We also will be working on transitioning quickly from defense to offense and vice-versa."
