Bruins 5 Knights 4
The Bruins scored two goals in the final six minutes of the game to come away with a 5-4 win against North Valley at Del Norte High on Saturday afternoon.
Although the Bruins looked to be the clear winners of the game after leading 3-1, the Knights rallied with three straight goals to take the lead and put the pressure back on the Bruins.
“The kids came together as a team and got it done,” said head coach Jess Beaman. “That’s the experience of them playing together; we have a lot of returning seniors and juniors that played last year on the varsity team and at the varsity level. They knew that they could do it.”
While the Bruins did allow the Knights to come back into the game, Beaman isn’t too worried, as he attributed the goals to some mishaps involving missed calls and and some fortuitous bounces off the grass.
Bruins 1 Pirates 1
The Bruins came away with a 1-1 tie against Phoenix High late Tuesday afternoon.
The Pirates scored first in the first half, and kept the led until the second half when Austin Fronckowiak found the net off a cross through the middle.
“It was a good, competitive game,” Beaman said. “Both teams were pretty equally matched; we had a few chances in the first half but we just couldn’t finish the ball at the back of the net.
The Bruins will host Hidden Valley at home on Thursday after at 4 p.m.
