It was a difficult trip to Ogden to open the season for the Bear River boys soccer team, which traveled to Ben Lomond High last week for three games in three days.
They came away winless at the Ben Lomond Tournament, but maybe can find some valuable lessons that will help them going forward with plenty of time left in the young season.
On Thursday, March 8, the Bears took on the tournament host Scots and led 1-0 at halftime on a goal by Garrett Goring, but conceded three times in the second half and ended up dropping the game by a final score of 3-2.
On Friday, March 9, the Bears’ opponent was Clearfield, and it proved to be a tough matchup as the Falcons took the Bears down by a score of 4-0. Dallin Steiner scored twice for Clearfield, which had three of its four goals in the second half.
The Bears wrapped up the road trip Saturday with a game against Roy. The Royals handed the Bears a 4-1 loss with four different players finding the back of the net. Goring scored his second goal this season for Bear River.
The Bears hosted Woods Cross on Tuesday afternoon, March 13, but it was after The Leader had already gone to press.
Up next, the Bears will travel to face their arch-rivals Box Elder in Brigham City Friday, March 16. Kickoff is slated for 3:30 p.m.
Bear River hosts Logan in their Region 12 opener on Tuesday, March 20.
