The Brookings-Harbor High School boys' soccer team fought back from a second-half deficit to win their fourth game in a row in a 4-3 victory over the Douglas Trojans Monday afternoon.

"It was a back and forth battle," Coach Gabe Anaya said. "Both teams played really hard, especially in the final 20 minutes."

Douglas was first to strike as they took an early 1-0 lead, but Linden Loren quickly answered back with his first of three goals on the day to tie the game at 1-1.

Mark Aguirre scored his team-leading eighth goal of the year later in the half to put the Bruins up 2-1 at the break.

Early in the second half, the Trojans were issued a penalty kick and capitalized on the opportunity, knotting the game at 2-2.

Another goal gave the Trojans a 3-2 lead, but the Bruins would bear down and hold them off for the remainder of the game.

Back-to-back goals by Loren tied the game and then put the Bruins up for good on their way to a 4-3 win.

With the win, the Bruins (6-1-1) still sit in first place in the Far West League, just one point ahead of the Pacific Pirates (6-2) who beat Coquille 3-0 on Monday.

Today (Oct. 10), the Bruins and Pirates face off for sole possession of first place in a home game that begins at 4:30 p.m.

In their first meeting of the year, the Pirates gave the Bruins their only loss this season with a 2-0 win.
