BA Holds Winchendon to a Close Game

The soccer team lost a tough match to Winchendon Saturday afternoon. BA went down a goal in the first half on a long shot from twenty five yards out. The ball just barely went over goaltender Ryan Rogers (Falmouth, ME) who made a great diving effort. BA had plenty of scoring opportunities but was not able to finish them. The Wolverine defense shut down the Wapidi offense in the second half giving up very little in the back. Bridgton kept up a continuous attack creating great scoring chances including two shots that hit the post. The boys played very hard but unfortunately the lack of capitalization on shots lead to a 1-0 loss for BA.

"On a day when nothing seemed to go the way of the Wolverines, the team battled to the very end. With Winchendon reeling for the entire second stanza and barely extending out of their own half, we just could not break through. We had a number of close calls, three posts, shots that went just wide and high, balls cleared off the line or deflected by a defender, but at the end of the day we did not do enough to get the job done. We must regroup quickly, and show our resilience to rebound on Tuesday," said Coach Ashenfelter.

The team will travel to Assumption College to face the South Kent School this Tuesday to play at 6:00 P.M.
