NEWPORT — Top prep soccer teams from around Oregon and Idaho will converge on Newport High School next week for a mid-summer shootout.
It is the fourth year in a row for the Newport Summer Soccer Spectacular, where the reigning 4A state champion Cubs will battle some of the biggest schools in the state July 19-20. Some of those schools hold titles in their own divisions, such as two-time defending champion Spartans from Corvallis. South Albany, Crescent Valley and a scratch team of hand-picked south coast schools are among the comers. Taft High School (9-5-4) will also be on the field.
Soccer fans, mark your calendars now and watch for next Wednesday’s News-Times for a complete article and schedule of games by correspondent R.W. Smith.
