Four Scappoose players, five St. Helens Lions earn all-league honorable mention, too

Forward Teegan Bond and midfielder Jake Boyle — both seniors — were the most highly-recognized Indians from a team that went 4-8-2 overall and finished fifth in the NWOC, going 2-3-2 in league.

The honorable mention list includes four more Indians, all seniors: forward Weston Gonrowski, midfielders DJ Backus and Corbin Edson and goalkeeper Dimitri Vanderhoef.

Five St. Helens players also earned honorable mention: junior forward Kaleb Edwards, senior midfielder Matteo Da Re, senior defenders Jimmy Lopez and Michael Aguilar-Rose, and freshman goalkeeper Andrew Worlitz.

Scappoose coach Scott Stanton praised his selected players for their hard work and heroics.

Bond led the Indians in assists and was "well known to every other coach in the league as our threatening left forward," Stanton said. "He liked to go 1v1 with opposing defenders. He has a bag of tricks to beat them, is surgical with his left foot and can still put in a wicked shot with his right as well. He's a good kid, committed, and will be missed next year."

Stanton said he was "extremely happy" that Boyle was chosen, given that Boyle had a "difficult role to assess in terms of quality. A holding mid isn't really a guy that scores goals, though he did have one of those, and he's not the guy making goal-line saves.  He sits in the middle of the field and breaks up attacks before they become a threat, then distributes the ball to the guy who gets the assist.

"But Jake was a hard worker, committed, one of the team captains, and he led by example."

"Solid work ethic, talented player," Stanton said. "He also played a role like Jake where his job was mainly to break up an attack in the midfield and get us going forward. He was an excellent student of the game and held himself to a high standard."

Edson missed a few games due to illness and other reasons, so some NWOC coaches didn't get to see him.

"But he possessed the competitive edge, work ethic and technical ability that I think could have seen him make the second team or possibly even the first team, had he been available for every game," Stanton said.

Vanderhoef had some big moments in goal, notably late down the stretch and in a 1-1 draw at Putnam and 2-0 loss to powerful La Salle Prep. He and sophomore Jed Barnaby battled for the spot all year, but by the end of the season Vanderhoef "threw himself in front of everything and was picking shots out of top corners like it was no big deal," Stanton said.

Gonrowski was the Indians' leading goal scorer with seven.

"His pace and finishing ability terrorized opposing defenses when he was in," Stanton said. "Like Corbin, he wasn't eligible to play in a few games due to illness and other things that kept other coaches from having a good look at him."

St. Helens, under a new coach in Clark Lawrence, made clear progress this season despite going winless for the fourth year in a row (0-14 overall, 0-7 in league).

Edwards was the Lions' top scorer.

"He really started understanding his position and role as the season was winding down," Lawrence said. "He will be a huge asset for us next year."

Da Re "was technically the most-skilled player we had," Lawrence said, "and his vocal leadership and drive were instrumental in our growth this season."

Lopez and Aguilar-Rose were captains.

"Jimmy was originally part of out midfield, but moved back to help the team and really put in a great effort in an uncomfortable position," Lawrence said. "Mike

worked hard all season and became a much better leader throughout the season."

Worlitz, the last line of defense for the Lions, faced the most shots and had the most saves in the league.

"He impressed coaches and players alike consistently and will be a force in the net for a while," Lawrence said.
