In the boys match, the Bulldogs got down early after conceding a goal to the Bears with about a minute to go in the first half. They fought back and scored 4 unanswered goals to take a huge Region win, 4-1.
Head Coach Jeremy Moore said, “This was a long time coming for the boys. We backed ourselves into a corner with some early losses, but they have responded well with the win over Windsor Forest earlier in the week, and now a big win over Pierce County this week. It was good to finally see some goals go in the back of the net. I thought we had been playing better than the results have shown; we just couldn’t find a way to score. Tonight, we were able to get 4 in against a very good Pierce County team.”
Goals were scored by Braylen Dietrich (2), Jose Leon (1), and Gustavo Delgado (1). This win brings the boys region record to 5-5 and gets them right back in the hunt for the state playoffs!
