HRV hosts Wilsonville Tuesday at 6 p.m.
The Hood River Valley Eagles hammered Mountain View Storm quickly into submission Saturday afternoon at Henderson Community Stadium, sending a clear statement to the remaining teams in the 5A bracket that they’re intent on earning the school’s first-ever state boys soccer title. The 7-1 quarterfinal win advanced the No. 2 seeded Eagles to the semifinals Tuesday night (6 p.m. at Henderson Community Stadium) against No. 3 Wilsonville Wildcats, who defeated Hillsboro 2-1 Saturday to stay alive in the bracket. The winner advances to Saturday’s final and will take on the winner of Tuesday’s No. 1 Summit vs. No. 4 Woodburn game.

Of all the things that might be scary on Halloween night, nothing would be worse for coach Caleb Sperry and his Hood River Valley High Eagles football team than a loss to the winless Riverhawks from The Dalles. The Eagles (3-6) clearly had no intentions of letting that happen, however, as they concluded their season on a positive note with a 34-6 win over TDW (0-9) on Senior Night Friday at Henderson Community Stadium.

Last week’s bowling league action at Hood River’s Orchard Lanes produced a bunch of excellent scores. The cream of the crop rose to the top and fresh faces flourished. The Team of the Week reflects that mix. Leading the parade of tall totalers was Lynn Spellman, who blasted a huge scratch 750 series in the Wednesday afternoon senior Colts & Fillies league.
