The Phoenix boys' soccer team isn't afraid to get physical this season. After finishing second in the state 4A tournament last spring, the Pirates are 2-0 on the fall season after wins over Cottage Grove and North Medford to open the season. Phoenix downed North Medford 5-3 on September 13 in an intense match at Phoenix-Talent Rising Field. The Pirates took a 3-1 lead on goals by Jenner Selden, Caden Gallegos and Victor Martinez before North rallied with a pair of second-half goals to forge a 3-3 tie. Martinez took things into his own hands, completing the hat trick with two more goals. Selden scored off a rebounded shot (28th minute) to tie the game at 1-1 before Gallegos found the top left shelf in the 32nd minute. Martinez converted a free kick in the first minute of the second half before Ulysses Gomez scored twice in a minute for the Black Tornado. Martinez made an impressive run to the goal and scored in the 64th minute before finding the net a final time 10 minutes later. The Pirates return to action Wednesday at Marshfield before hosting Ontario on Saturday.

Youth is serving the Phoenix girls' soccer team well. Off to 2-0 start, the Pirates have outscored opponents 13-0 on the young season, with wins over Cottage Grove and Cascade Christian. Both wins have included hat tricks for the Pirates, who were winless in the abbreviated spring season. Junior Sofia Rodriguez had three goals in the 7-0 win over Cottage Grove on Sept. 2 while freshman Amahi Villa found the net three times in Saturday's 6-0 win over visiting Cascade Christian. Carsyn Gallegos and Villa both added two goals against Cottage Grove. Gallegos, Izzy Sellers and Anabell Delgado all added goals against Cascade. Maria Pyeatt worked the shutout in goal at Cottage Grove while Jaden Vos had a clean sheet against Cascade Christian. Ruby Rector, Morgan James and Mady Mayer anchored a stellar Phoenix defense in both wins.
