The La Grande boys soccer team put themselves in a tough place Saturday. With a 1-0 loss to rival Baker, the Tigers’ playoff fate is now in the hands of the OSAA ranking system, which doesn’t freeze until Tuesday.

Currently LHS is third in the Greater Oregon League and ranked 20th by the OSAA, but the GOL isn’t guarenteed three teams for a play-in game.

And according to coach Wade Wright, “there are still too many games out there. Tuesday is packed.”

In the grand scheme of things, the loss to Baker hurt.

Fifteen minutes into the game Saturday the Bulldogs scored on a shot from 30 yards out.

“It was a long shot that just dropped right in under the bar,” Wright said.

Other than that one shot, Wright felt like his team outplayed their rivals.

“It was good and frustrating at the same time. We controlled ball movement and tempo. We played the game we like to play. But you gotta have a little luck, and we just couldn’t get any of it,” the coach said.

The game was played in rainy conditions, making for a sloppy field.

With the loss, La Grande is now 4-8-1 overall and 2-6-1 in the GOL.

McLoughlin is first in the league with a 9-0 mark and is 12-0 overall, while Ontario is second with a 9-4-1 overall record and 4-4-1 in the GOL.

LHS will have to get some help by the OSAA in order to get a play-in game.
