Lake Oswego 4, McDaniel 2 

Evan Huber had a natural hat trick in the first 30 minutes, Bryce Stewart scored in the 36th minute, and the 12th-seeded Lakers (12-3-2) staved off a Mountain Lions rally to end the 29th seed’s Cinderella run.

Eli White and Bryan Carmona Zepeda scored second-half goals for McDaniel, which had only one playoff win in program history before this season.

The Lakers will face crosstown rival and top seed Lakeridge (16-1), a 2-0 winner over Franklin, in Tuesday’s semifinals.

Grant 2, Aloha 1 (SO) 

The 30th-seeded Generals (6-9-2) had only three wins entering the postseason, but their third playoff win — secured 5-4 in penalties — sends them to the semifinals for the second time in the past three seasons.

Jesuit 1, West Linn 0

Pablo Salazar converted a free kick from the top of the penalty area with five minutes left to lift the defending champion Crusaders (13-2-2) past West Linn and into the semifinals, where they’ll play host to Grant on Tuesday.


La Salle Prep 3, McKay 2 

Vance Sheffield pounced on the rebound after a McKay defender cleared his header off the goal line in the 78th minute, and the third-seeded Falcons avenged a semifinal loss to the Royal Scots in last year’s playoffs and defeated the defending champions.

La Salle Prep (14-3) had only three starters back from last year’s team, including Sheffield, whose 32nd goal of the season sealed the victory after the Royal Scots tied the score at 2-2 with 2:48 remaining. 

Last year, McKay scored a tying goal with five seconds left, then won in overtime en route to the program’s first state title.

“It feels like this matchup was destined to bring the very best out of La Salle,” said Falcons coach Monty Hawkins. “This team wasn’t going to let McKay have a repeat miracle ending tonight.”

McKay scored first in the 17th minute, but Vala Sagahfi answered with two minutes before halftime with a 22-yard blast for his 18th goal of the season. Sagahfi assisted on Kevin Serrano Maldonado’s goal in the 48th minute, a long drive from 35 yards for his 11th goal. Sagahfi has 24 assists. 

Summit 5, Ashland 0

Kaden Roskowski scored twice in the second half as the second-seeded Storm (13-1-3) pulled away from a 2-0 halftime lead en route to the quarterfinal home win.

Gabe Lachman opened the scoring in the seventh minute off a corner kick delivered by Bowen Teuber. Fifteen minutes later, Tommy Carroll converted a penalty kick. Carroll also assisted on Roskowski’s first goal, followed by an unassisted goal by Luca Gatto.

The Storm will play host to La Salle Prep in one semifinal Tuesday. The other will match No. 8 Hood River Valley (12-4), which took out top seed Crescent Valley 3-2 in overtime, against No. 13 Wilsonville (8-7-1), a 1-0 winner at fifth-seeded Corvallis.


North Marion 3, Henley 2 (SO) 

The top-seeded Hornets built a 2-0 lead within 11 minutes, but the Huskies scored twice in the second half on goals by Aden Carillo and Alexis Lopez Ibarra before winning the shootout 5-4 in eight rounds.

It marks the second consecutive season that North Marion (11-4-2) entered the playoffs as the No. 9 seed and beat the No. 1 seed, doing it to Stayton a year ago.

Layne Worrell and Gavin Knutson scored four minutes apart for Henley. 

Newport 3, Marist Catholic 0 

Aadiyn Bokuro scored on a rebound of a hard shot by Sebastian Guzman in the box five minutes before halftime, and Ivan Hernandez and Michael McSharry tacked on second-half goals to lift the fourth-seeded Cubs (13-1-2) to their first semifinal since they won the 2017 state title.

McSharry ran onto a cross from Tony Gonzalez at the far post and volleyed home with the left foot in the 75th minute to seal the win. 

Newport will play host to North Marion in one semifinal. The other semifinal features No. 10 The Dalles (10-2-3), a 2-1 winner over Crook County, at No. 6 Cottage Grove (13-2-1), which ousted Estacada 4-2. 


St. Mary’s (Medford) 4, Valley Catholic 3

Leo Cronk and Jose Munoz scored two goals apiece, and the fifth-seeded Crusaders (15-1-1) survived giving up two second-half penalties to win at No. 4 Valley Catholic.

St. Mary’s will face top seed Westside Christian (15-1), a 3-0 winner over Blanchet Catholic, in Tuesday’s semifinals.

McLoughlin 4, Oregon Episcopal 2 

The third-seeded Pioneers (16-0-1) rallied from a halftime deficit to oust the defending champion Aardvarks in a rematch of last year’s final, which OES won 2-1 for its seventh title. 

Catlin Gabel 2, Riverside 0 

Giancarlo Rendon Benitez scored first-half goals in the third and 38th minutes, and Miles Wolohan and Liko Edelen Hare combined on the shutout as the second-seeded Eagles (13-2-1) reached the semifinals for the sixth time in the past seven years. 

Finn Hough assisted on Benitez’s second goal, and Riley Nordhoff anchored the back line for Catlin Gabel, which will face McLoughlin in Tuesday’s semifinals. The Pioneers beat Catlin Gabel in a shootout in last year’s quarterfinals.
