Bend Boys reach soccer semis

Colin Brown put the No. 6 Lava Bears ahead in a Class 5A quarterfinal match with a penalty kick in the 25th minute after his first attempt, which was saved by the Hermiston goalkeeper, was called off because the keeper left his line too early. Parker Hollenbeck added to the Bend lead in the 60th minute with an assist from Calvan Berteau, and E.G. Pierce scored on a set piece with an assist from Isaac Kocurek-Orr in the 65th. The Lava Bears will travel to No. 2 Corvallis for a state semifinal match Tuesday.
