Parents Weekend Is A Success for Soccer

The soccer team had a chance to turn things around as they took the field in front of family and friends for Parents Weekend. They played a great game against Kents Hill and walked away with a 5-2 victory.

In the first half Jordan Stoddart (Brampton, ON) put BA on the score board with a great header off of a nice cross by Noel Rix (Rye, NH). The game was pretty even in the first half with both sides having opportunities to score. However, Bridgton controlled most of the possession taking the game into halftime with a one goal lead.

In the second half both teams took the field ready to play. Bridgton took at 2-0 lead when Stoddart gave a pass to James Dever (Mansfield, MA) who put the ball in the net. A few minutes later Stoddard had a great shot on goal which rebounded directly to Rix who was able to give BA a 3-0 lead. Stoddart worked his magic again as he gave BA in insurance goal with a rocket into the upper left corner. Being down 4-0 Kents Hill had a little success as they were able to sneak two goals by the BA goaltender. It was but enough, especially when Bridgton scored one last goal when Even Thomas (Reading, PA) got a shot off from inside the box to secure the 5-2 win.

Coach Ashenfelter was pleased with his team saying, “we had a solid performance all around. On a great day the team rose to the occasion of Parents Weekend and capitalized on their opportunities netting both highlight reel goals as well as scrappy goals. We will look to build on this collective effort going forward. “

The wolverine soccer team wants to extend a special thanks to the Janos family for organizing a post game meal. It was greatly appreciated.
