While the Woodburn boys soccer team had its postseason run cut short by Parkrose in the first round of the playoffs, the team did have a largely successful conference schedule. The team finished second in the Mid-Willamette Conference with a 7-1 league record behind eventual state champions McKay.

With that run of success, Woodburn had its efforts acknowledged with several all-league awards, including a trio of first-team honors.

First team honors went to senior Jairo Perez Santiago, a defender who had a pair of goals to his name and only allowed 10 goals through his defensive line in the regular season. Additionally, junior midfielder Jose Guzman, who recorded eight goals and four assists, and junior forward Giovanni Lopez, who had 11 goals and an assist, were also named first team all-league.

Honorable mention nods went to junior defender Luis Garza and junior midfielder Chris Amezcua.

The team finished the season with an overall record of 9-3-2.
