Croney’s hat trick spurs team to win

With only three games remaining in Region 11 play, the Bear River girls’ soccer team is tied for second-place.

If they win out, they will have a chance to host a first round playoff game. However, coach Gene Wilcox continues to preach to his team not to overlook anyone.

In last week’s action the Bears lost to region-leading Ogden, 6-0, before hanging on to a hard fought 3-2 win versus Ben Lomond. The win against Ben Lomond created the two-way tie for second place with the Scots.

Sophomore Sadie Croney provided the offense against the Scots as she netted a hat trick in the first half. Croney struck first with her fifth goal of the season before Ben Lomond answered with two goals. Croney added her sixth and seventh goals of the year before the first half whistle blew.

Along with the stellar attack from Croney, senior captain Josie Summers executed the defensive play of the game by blocking a Ben Lomond penalty kick that switched the momentum over to Bear River.

“This was a big game for us and for Ben Lomond; if they could knock us off they would keep second place,” said Wilcox. “It was good to see the girls step up like that and get us that big win.”

The road does not get much easier as Bear River traveled to Morgan yesterday to take on a feisty squad who is playing quite well.
