West Linn girls soccer prepare for playoffs

West+Linn+girls+soccer+prepare+for+playoffs

As the girls soccer season comes to an end, the West Linn Lions, 7-4-1, are looking ahead to a spot in the State playoffs. After a disappointing loss in the first round of playoffs last season, the team is hoping for a better outcome, especially since they are a more united team this year.

“I think this year we play better as a team and we’re more confident,” Madison Leek, senior co-captain, said. “It’s better than last season.”

Last year, the Lions’ hopes for a State title were crushed when they lost 4-1 to Thurston Colts in the first round. The loss was especially hard to swallow after a successful season going.

During this years’ playoffs, the Lions hope to continue their successful season-long run towards a 6A championship behind star scorer Leek. Leek, an Arizona State University commit, has scored 23 goals all season, the most goals by a single player in the Three Rivers League.

The Lions’ first playoff game is Sat. Nov. 3. Details will be released soon about who the Lions will face and where the game will take place.

About the Contributor
Kara Ghorbani-Elizeh, The People Editor
Community service is a way that Kara Ghorbani-Elizeh, senior, gives back. Helping people has always been an important aspect of Ghorbani-Elizeh’s life because she has always been aware of how lucky she is to live a privileged life. Ghorbani-Elizeh considers it selfish when people have a chance to help someone and they don't. “Whenever a person in my group of friends needs help, I am the go-to person,” Ghorbani-Elizeh said. She would love to continue helping people throughout her life and is considering becoming a psychiatrist when she grows up. “I first became interested in psychology when I took it as a class my sophomore year of high school,” Ghorbani-Elizeh said. “I loved it because I think it is really cool how there are reasons for a person’s behavior and how scientists can figure out how the brain works.” Although helping people is a big part in Ghorbani-Elizeh’s life, she also loves to travel and took a three week trip to Italy and Greece this summer. “It was the most amazing trip of my whole life, the food was delicious and the beaches were beautiful. You could see straight down into the ocean,” Ghorbani-Elizeh said. Ghorbani-Elizeh has always been aware of other people’s needs and wants. She is the first person her friends go to in times of need and in her free time, you will see her volunteering for her community. She is truly devoted to helping people, and wants to make her life career about assisting other people in their problems.
