Ospreys Volleyball Clinches Playoffs; Soccer Seasons End

MEDFORD — The Rogue Community College Ospreys saw all three teams competing at home Saturday, Oct. 26. Volleyball hosted Chemeketa and won 3-0 to clinch a spot in the NWAC playoffs. Women’s soccer battled through a tough match against Portland but fell 1-0, ending their season. Men’s soccer played their final game of the year and battled to a 1-0 win over Portland.

Volleyball:
The Ospreys (23-2, 11-1 NWAC) were looking for a win against Chemeketa (12-21, 5-6 NWAC) to secure a spot in the playoffs. They found it Saturday as they rolled through Chemeketa in three. They easily handled the first two games before finding themselves in a back-and-forth battle for the final set; 25-14, 25-12, 27-25.

The Ospreys clinched a playoff spot and remain in first place in the South Region with four games to play. They will be on the road for their next two games, facing Lane (19-8, 10-1 NWAC) on Friday, Nov. 1 and Linn-Benton (23-9, 9-2 NWAC) on Saturday, Nov. 2.

Women’s Soccer:
The Ospreys women (5-7-5, 5-3-4 NWAC) were looking for a win against Portland (10-5-3, 7-2-3 NWAC) to earn their first ever playoff berth. They battled through an incredibly intense match — there were broken hands, noses, and strained knees — and they fought on, putting everything on the line. Unfortunately there was only one goal in the match and it went to Portland. The Ospreys lost 1-0, eliminating them from the playoff hunt. Maddie Pineda picked up a yellow card in the match. 

The Ospreys women finished the season in fourth place in the South Region.

Men’s Soccer:
The Ospreys (5-6-4, 3-5-2 NWAC) knew they were playing their final game of the season when they hosted Portland (3-7-3, 2-6-2 NWAC). Looking to go out on a high note, as they fell just short of playoffs, the Ospreys battled the entire match and finally found the net in the 88th minute. Raul Reyes collected a ball at midfield and sent it forward with a header to Jorge Tarango who chipped  it over the keeper for the goal. The Ospreys won 1-0.

Three Ospreys picked up yellow cards during the match: Bryan Garcia, Rosendo Juarez and Josue Reyes. The Ospreys men finish the season in a tie for fourth place in the South Region.
