Prep Highlights: Columbia River boys soccer finishes 2A GSHL domination


Alex Harris scored four goals as Columbia River boys soccer beat R.A. Long 8-0 to conclude a perfect 2A Greater St. Helens League season.

The Rapids outscored opponents 96-2 in 16 league matches. The Rapids (17-0-0) are No. 1 in the WIAA’s RPI rankings for Class 2A statewide.

Columbia River will open postseason play on Tuesday, hosting a district match against the winner of a play-in game between GSHL No. 5 seed Washougal and the No. 4 seed from the Evergreen Conference.

With Fort Vancouver’s 1-0 win over Hudson’s Bay on Thursday, the Trappers are the 2A GSHL’s No. 2 seed.

Ridgefield beat Hockinson in a penalty kick shootout Thursday. The Spudders are the No. 3 seed headed into districts, one point behind Fort Vancouver.

Woodland wrapped up the No. 4 seed with a 4-1 win over Mark Morris.
