The Philomath High School boys soccer team’s record dipped to 2-3-1 on the season in what ended up as a scoreless tie on Thursday at Cascade.

Warriors head coach Dave Ellis said he believes that PHS scored a goal in the 15th minute but it was disallowed by the official. He also questioned why Cascade’s bench received two yellow cards yet there were no player ejections.

“We dominated the whole game … gave up 3-1/2 chances but when it came to the final ball or shot, it was a bad bounce or bad luck,” Ellis said. “We did everything right, just never got the luck needed to get the ball in the back of the net again.”

Cascade slipped past Philomath in the first meeting between the two schools, 3-2, back on March 13. The Cougars finished their regular season with a 3-2-2 record.

Philomath will end the regular season on Saturday with a game against 5A opponent, Crescent Valley. The Raiders come into the game with a 2-4-2 record and six-game winless streak, which includes a 1-1 tie Tuesday night at Central. Despite the record, CV has been competitive in most of its games, losing by more than two goals only twice this season.
