The McKay High School boys soccer team enjoyed a warm send-off by community members and first responders as they embarked for the State Championship playoffs held Saturday, November 12 at Hillsboro Stadium.

After being tied 1-1 at halftime, it was a second goal by junior forward Abdoulie Jallow who brought the team into the lead.

The Scots (17-0) were crowned 5A State Champions, the first state title in the program’s history, after defeating West Albany 2-1.

Coach Juan Llamas told the Statesman Journal that community support, and his players commitment, were keys to success.
