CAMAS — With a trip to the Class 4A state soccer final four on the line, a familiar foe stood in the way of the Camas Papermakers. No. 7 seed Issaquah, the team Camas battled in last season’s state championship all the way to a penalty kick shootout won by the Papermakers, got redemption with a 1-0 victory in Saturday’s state quarterfinals at Doc Harris Stadium. Eagles senior forward Shelby Runje scored the game’s lone goal in the 23rd minute by carving out a sliver of space in a crowd of Camas defenders and delivering a strike into the top corner of the net. “Like we always tell the girls, you only need the space of the ball to score a goal,” Camas head coach Keri Tomasetti said.
“She found that space and she was able to sneak it through the defense and get it in. It was a well placed ball … can’t do much better than that.” The No. 2 seed Papermakers (17-2-2) had won 15 straight games dating back to mid-September, including the last seven without surrendering a single goal in regulation or overtime.
