The Hood River Co-ed soccer league completed its spring season Thursday evening with a championship match between the league’s top two teams, Trout Lake and FC Hood. After a hard-fought match, FC Hood came through with a tie-breaker goal to slip away with a 2-1 victory and bragging rights until the fall season.
Going into the finals, FC Hood led the league with an overall record of 12-0-2, while Trout Lake was in a tie for second with the Blue Backs at 9-1-4. Earlier in the championships, Trout Lake defeated the Blue Backs for a spot in the finals.
Stefanie Cohen struck first for FC Hood with a solid one-touch shot off a cross from Dave Carr. Trout Lake tied the game a few minutes later when Brendan Norman beat an off-side trap and found the back of the net. The winning goal came from an assist by Kate Gordon, who found Dan Bubb on his way to a one-one-one with the keeper.
The league consisted of five teams this season, with games for the spring season starting in early June. Lisa Knight-Davies started the league in 2003 because she was tired of driving to Portland to play. With the help of herself and other volunteers, the league promotes friendly adult soccer within the Gorge. Following this week’s championships, the league will take a break until the fall season, which will run from September through November. New players, over 18 years old, are encouraged to join in next season. Newcomers will most likely be placed on existing teams, with the possibility of new teams being added as the league grows.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
