In three earlier tournaments, the Columbia Gorge Goats have consistently run away from their opponents with an average margin of victory of 10.3 points for three consecutive 3-on-3 tournament championships.

This past weekend at the CTGR Native Youth 3-on-3 Tournament in Grand Ronde, the Goats added two new faces and needed an overtime session to slip past DWL by a 35-32 margin on a game-winning 3-pointer from Henry Begay.

Last summer, coach Oscar Nuñez fielded assembled 10U and 12U girls soccer teams, and both groups combined for a 5-2-2 record with a 21-9 scoring margin as the 10U squad secured first place at the Beaverton Cup.

Restocked with a revamped 10U roster this time around, the Westside Timbers—Copa Gorge posted a 4-0 record, capped by a 3-2 penalty-kick victory on a goal by Josie Gunderson to defeat Oregon City SC and repeat as champions.

“I am very proud of what this group of girls accomplished this summer,” Nuñez said. “With a lot of new faces, they came together and exceeded expectations.”

The Oregon Wheat Growers League is profoundly disappointed in comments made about wheat and our markets in Japan by President Trump in a speech in Pennsylvania on Aug. 13. The President’s dismissive statements (“...they don’t even want our wheat...they do it to make us feel good) about the importance of customers in Japan to wheat growers in Oregon and the US demonstrated that he doesn’t fully appreciate the 70 years of effort by generations of wheat growers to build the great relationships we now have with our customers in Japan.
