The last game of the night was Wilsonville trying to keep their perfect record alive against Hillsboro, after the marathon against Canby the Spartan legs looked dead against Wilsonville. The Wildcats swept the Spartans with scored of 25-9, 25-10, and 25-11 respectively. With that win against Hillsboro Wilsonville’s league record is now 13-0 while their overall record is 20-0. 

Wilsonville just keeps winning and look to keep doing so with a tournament this weekend then three more regular season games. At home vs. La Salle on Monday, @ Milwaukie next Wednesday, and the final game of the year is at home vs. Putnam. Wilsonville looks to be a lock for the number 1 seed in the playoffs but going undefeated into the playoffs would be a huge confidence boost for this team.
