The Tigard High men’s soccer team had their first home win tonight, against the Newberg Tigers. The score was 4-0 and the Tigard Tigers scored two goals in the first five minutes of the game. The first half ended 2-0 and the Tigers had their first halftime lead at home.

The beginning of the second half was a bit slower, but Tigard managed to score again halfway through the second half. With four minutes left in the game, Luis Vega scored a goal to make the end score 4-0.

“We are so happy, we needed this win,” Vega said.

This is Tigard’s third win of the season, and now men’s varsity soccer is 3-3 in their standings.
