Capturing the region title may be out of reach for the Bear River girls’ soccer team, but that is not stopping the Bears from progressing in each phase of the game. Bear River suffered their sixth loss of the season and second in region to Ogden last Tuesday by a final score of 2-0 then came back and beat Ben Lomond 6-2.
There are three games left in the regular season as the Bears hosted Morgan yesterday on senior night and will take on Stansbury Thursday, along with Tooele on Oct. 6, both games being on the road. If Bear River is able to win out or at least win two of the three, they will be hosting a first round playoff game with hopes of making a deep playoff run.
“We felt like we played the best soccer we have played all season in the second half,” said coach Gene Wilcox of the Ogden match. The Bears nearly scored a goal on a corner kick in the second half, which could have changed the complexion of the game. Nonetheless, Bear River found themselves 6-6 on the season and needing to prove a point against Ben Lomond.
