Mac-Hi soccer player Sergio Alvarez lies in disbelief on the turf at Shockman Field in Milton-Freewater following the Pioneers' 6-3 shootout loss to visiting Philomath in their Oregon Class 4A state playoff match on Tuesday. After scoring with 48 seconds left to play in regulation time, Alvarez ran the gamut of emotion Tuesday afternoon with the thrill of the last minute tie (see other photo) and then the agony of the shootout loss. After two scoreless overtime periods, the Pioneers fell to their first defeat of the season, losing the shootout and match by a final score of 3-2.
