BA Overtakes Bowdoin J.V.

The soccer team battled through rain and mud as they took on Bowdoin College’s J.V. team. The two teams faced each other earlier in the week and settled with a 2-2 tie. This time, Bridgton was determined to take away the win. Bowdoin came out strong scoring first eighteen minutes into the game. Luca Viscomi (Newton, MA) finished a pass from Eddie Demoya (Salem, MA) late in the first half to tie things up. Just ten minutes later Will McGowan (Andover, MA) and Will Groves (Walpole, MA) connected as McGowan put away the go ahead goal. After a sloppy play by BA, Bowdoin was awarded a penalty kick, which tied up the game. Not wanting to give up, Demoya scored the game winning goal off a feed from Aidan Harrison (Medfield, MA) to secure the 3-2 win.

Coach Ashenflter was very proud of his team saying “we battled through adversity over and over again, showing great resilience and strong will to win.”

The team hopes to keep the momentum going as they travel to Central Maine Community College to play on Wednesday October 5th at 3:30 P.M.
