The Bear River girls’ soccer team added two more crucial wins last week against Tooele and Stansbury to extend their season-best winning streak to four games.
The Bears are now faced with arguably their toughest week of the season as they face the two teams who have defeated them in Region 11 play, Ogden and Ben Lomond. Bear River is tied for second-place with Ben Lomond with 15 points and records of 5-2 in region play.
“Ogden and Ben Lomond handled us pretty well at our home field so we would like to play well on their field. If we can jump on them early, anything can happen,” said coach Gene Wilcox. “The Ogden game will be a good game to see where we are at and hopefully we can get a win in at least one of these games.”
Against Tooele, the Bears used their balanced attack to penetrate the back-line defense of Tooele. The score stood at a 1-1 draw at halftime before both teams starting finishing their attacks. The Bears got the upper hand with three second half goals on the way to the 4-3 win.
Senior captain Paige Roholt found the back of the net as well as fellow senior Sarah Huber, junior Marisa Hobbs and sophomore Whitney Wilcox.
