Season of adversity, courage ends in St. Maries loss

Print Article

LAKELAND — Priest River’s boys fell to the St. Maries Lumberjacks here 4-0 Oct. 9. Head coach Rob Lawler said St. Maries had plenty of chances to score, but the Spartans withstood most of them and put up a few shots of their own.

“The Spartans held off the lumberjacks for 53 minutes while mounting several attacks on the Lumberjack defense. With only a few minutes remaining in the match, SM found the net two more times to a final score of 4-0 in favor of the Lumberjacks.”

Though the season did not turn out as well as fans might have hoped, Lawler said this year’s squad fought against adverse circumstances all season and succeeded by staying engaged in each match.

“This team stayed strong throughout the season and persevered over many hurdles. We were a small young team this year and played exceptionally well keeping nearly 3/4 of our games at less than a three point spread. No other Spartan boys soccer team has had this accomplishment. I am extremely proud of this team for what they accomplished this year and look forward to what they will be in the upcoming season as we are only losing three seniors out of the 15 on the roster.”

Shots — SM 17, PR 8.

Saves — SM 3, PR Evan Barnes, Jakia Irvine, 7.

First half — 1. SM Matt Masterson (Lockridge), 5:00. 2. SM Masterson (Martin), 20:00.

Second half — 3. SM Steven Grant, 73:00. 4. SM Lonken (Moore), 78:00.
