Varsity boys’ soccer loses to West Linn in playoffs

Varsity boys’ soccer lost its second playoff game 3-1 at West Linn, ending the team’s season. The Cardinals scored on a penalty to equalize the game 1-1 before halftime. Junior Ari Gertzen said that even though the loss brought the team’s season to an end, it motivates him to try harder next year. “We played in a very intense and heated match,” Gertzen said. “I think that our loss is just a way for me to challenge myself to be a better player as a senior. It will be my last year at Lincoln, so I may as well make it count and try to make it to state.”
