Woodburn's Hernandez, Perez earn first team all-league honors
The Woodburn Bulldogs' quest for another state title came up short after they ran into a strong Willamette Wolverines (15-2) in the quarterfinals on Saturday, Nov. 6. By the team's lofty standards, it was a disappointing out, but there were still highs for the perennial contender and top-10 team.
Woodburn finished the season at 9-6, including a 6-3 record in the Mid-Willamette Conference (MWC), the most competitive conference at 5A. Woodburn notched 32 goals across all competition and conceded just 18, the second lowest in the MWC.
For their work in securing third place in the conference, several Woodburn players were recognized with all-league honors.
Senior midfielder Bryan Hernandez and junior defender Jairo Perez were given first team all-league honors. Junior forward Spencer Karsseboom was given second team all-league honors, as was sophomore Jose Guzman and senior Victor Barajas. Senior captain and defender Noe Gonzalez was named all-league honorable mention, as was senior midfielder Jesus Corona.
