Soccer Extends Undefeated Streak Over The Weekend

This past weekend the soccer team traveled to Massachussetts for a two day road trip. They started with a match against Deerfield Academy and followed up the next day at Worcester Academy. In the game against Deerfield the Wolverines played a hard game and took an early lead. Jordan Stoddart (Brampton, ON) struck first against Deerfield when he took a long punt from Ryan Rogers (Falmouth, ME) behind the defense for a goal early in the first half. After multiple scoring opportunities from each team, Mike Jacques (Tolland, CT) took a penalty in the box. Deerfield capitalized on the opportunity and tied the game 1-1. Bridgton worked hard for the rest of the match and held Deerfield to a tie.

On Sunday the team made the drive to Worcester Academy where the game started off very differently. Worcester went ahead with an early goal only five minutes into the game. It didn’t take long however for Stoddart and Noel Rix (Rye, NH) to find each other as Rix scored BA’s first goal of the game. After ten minutes of even play, Worcester found a scoring opportunity again to go up 2-1. BA fought hard, and was rewarded as a Worcester defender put the ball in his own net. The game was tied 2-2 at the half and BA came out looking for a win. In the second half both teams were fired up. Much to BA’s disadvantage Marlon Ramalho (Framingham, MA) was carded with 18 minutes to go and BA was to play a man down. However, the Wolverines never gave up. With five minutes left in the game Crispin Munyanya (Manchester, NH) found a pass from Jacob Bricklin (Bainbridge Island, WA) and put it away to give BA a 3-2 win.

The team will be on the road for their next match up as they travel to the Holderness School to play on Saturday October 2nd at 2:30 P.M.
