Some soccer teams are having to wait even longer to start their season after their programs have been quarantined due to COVID-19 protocols.

Lake Oswego High School held exercises and games for a variety of sports, including Friday’s soccer prelude against Tigard, which was canceled due to multiple COVID-19 cases attributable to a February 25 gathering.

Other sports affected were baseball, boys’ basketball, boys’ soccer, and girls’ lacrosse. Only boys soccer had games canceled; The other sports will take place in season 3 or season 4 this year.

Meanwhile, Sheldon won’t be able to resume football until March 15 as a team member tracks down contact, Irish coach Josh Line said Wednesday night.

“It’s just unfortunate because we’ve waited so long for it,” said Line. “We’re staggering now, but we’ll straighten up and prepare to face Willamette (March 19th).”

Further south, Class 3A Douglas had to cancel its kick-off against Sutherlin because of a positive COVID-19 test for a student at the school. This was the third game with a Douglas County school that was canceled this week – Roseburg-Eagle Point and Oakland-Central Linn were also scratched.

Sutherlin was able to plan a new opponent for the start. The Bulldogs will host the Klamath Union on Friday. Eagle Point found a new opponent in the first week at short notice. The Eagles will play Springfield.
