Wolverines Suffer Tough Loss at Winchendon

The Bridgton Academy soccer team traveled down to Massachusetts on Friday and suffered a tough loss to a very talented Winchendon team 10-0. Despite the final score the team played hard throughout the game showing a great deal of heart and continued to give a strong effort all the way up until the final whistle. In fact the Wolverines best scoring opportunity came in the 89th minute in what looked to be a surefire goal before Winchendon's keeper was able to deflect it just enough to where it struck the crossbar instead of the back of the net. Coach Mellon had strong praise for his team and their efforts despite some key injuries, particularly to keeper Nick Gardner who suffered a dislocated pinkie in the first half, "We played with a lot of heart, Nick finishing off the first half with a dislocated pinkie just shows how he is always willing to put the team before himself, we're lucky to have a number of guys on the team who are that way."

Coach Mellon and the Wolverines will look to put this game behind them as they gear up for a match this afternoon with South Kent School right here at Bridgton Academy, kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m.
