The Wilsonville Wildcats played the Silverton Foxes on an early fall evening.

It was an evenly matched game throughout both halves. While the Foxes scored early, the Wildcat’s unrelenting energy brought them two goals taking them into a long-lasting lead.

With about twelve minutes left in the final half, Silverton tied it up again, but the Cats retaliated quickly to bring themselves into the lead again.

The final six minutes held only heartbreak for the Cats with a late penalty in their goal box–resulting in a penalty shot and goal for the Foxes.

With a final score of 3-3 the game was most definitely an even match.
