Soccer Beats CMCC

The wolverine soccer team had a great win last night over Central Maine Community College 6-3.

Jordan Stoddard (Bampton, ON) started off the Wolverine's offensive attack with a goal approximately 15 minutes into the first half. Within the next minute, Stoddard was at it again, this time with a clear pass to Noel Rix (Rye, NH) who put the Wolverines on the scoreboard for a second time. Play continued back and forth until the pair found each other again with Rix finishing a pass from Stoddard with 2:36 left in the first half. The Wolverines ended the half ahead 3-0.

As play started in the second half, a CMCC player scored 5 minutes in. It didn't take long however for Stoddard to answer back with two goals assisted by Rix in the next six minutes earning himself a hattrick for the day. CMCC got lucky again with a goal, but BA continued to dominate the play. Crispin Munyanya (Manchester, NH) added an insurance goal with 14:15 left in the game putting the Wolverines well in the lead 6-2. One more CMCC goal slipped past with a few minutes left on the clock, but Bridgton continued to fight hard to make sure they stayed in the lead to earn their 6-3 victory.

Coach Ashenfelter liked what he saw from his team. "Our commitment and work rate defensively was markedly improved, and our ball movement was consistently dangerous going forward. I am proud of the way we competed throughout the game, maintained composure, and played as a team. We will look to continue building on this improvement in our next training session, and carry the momentum into our next contest," said Ashenfelter.
