Raiders fall to 'Yotes in semis

The College of Idaho scored 31 seconds into Wednesday's Cascade Conference women's soccer semifinal match and then held on for a 1-0 victory over Southern Oregon at Vallivue High School in Caldwell, Idaho.

The College of Idaho (12-5-2) will now face the winner of the Corban-Concordia semifinal for the Cascade Conference championship next Wednesday.

The Yotes and Raiders were both playing in their first ever semifinal match. The College of Idaho got on the board early with a goal by Mandy Greif with just 31 seconds off the game clock.

After that the two teams settled into a defensive battle that didn't feature many shots on either side.

"It was a great game," SOU head coach Jon Clement said. "Give them credit, they came out and scored early and it was enough. It was a battle between two good, young and developing teams."

Southern Oregon finishes the season with a 9-11 record and a roster made up of mostly freshmen and sophomores.

"This season says a lot about the future and potential of this team," Clement said. "I'm excited about next year. We've got a special group of players."


Three straight late victories helped the Black team to a 33-21 victory over the Red team in the annual Southern Oregon University Red and Black Intrasquad wrestling dual Wednesday night at McNeal Pavilion.

The Black team featured mostly returners, while the Red team featured many of the program's newcomers.

Shaun Ceremello (174 pounds), fifth-ranked Chase Locke (197) and heavyweight John Harrison scored back-to-back-to-back victories to turn a close dual into a victory in favor of the Black team.

The action featured a pair of falls. Second-ranked Heavyweight John Bates scored a fall of Matt Klimek in 30 seconds and Seth Roy pinned Anthony Ough in 3:48.

Second-ranked Barry Johnson (141) and fourth-ranked Trevor Lofstedt (133) joined Locke and Bates as all four of SOU's ranked wrestlers were victorious.

"We tried to mix it up to try and get the younger guy some wins," SOU head coach Mike Ritchey said. "Guys that were aggressive tonight went out and won and that's something that we've been stressing in practice."

The Raiders open up the regular season Nov. 16 when they take part in the University of Pacific Open.
