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.

“The community has been supporting us since day one and this is us giving back to them,” Llamas said. “But, ultimately the boys are putting in the work and showing up to practice.”

Congratulations, Royal Scots!
