Boys soccer beat in district opener

Priest River freshman Joseph Irvine battles a St. Maries player for a ball during districts on Saturday.

   RATHDRUM — The Spartan boy’s soccer team played some of their best soccer at the right time of the season, but it wasn’t enough to get them past St. Maries on Saturday in a loser-out game to start the District I & II soccer tournament at Rotary Field. Priest River (0-10, 0-6 IML) lost to St. Maries 6-0 but should be excited for next season with 10 out of 13 players expected to return. “To start where we did and end where we did is very encouraging,” Spartan coach Brody Everett said. “Some kids hadn’t played soccer in years, so we showed a lot of progress through the year.” “We have a very young team and the number’s should increase next year. There is a group of 5-6 eight graders coming up, so it should be nice,” the coach added.

   Thomas Cook assisted Brett Dickman in the 15th minute and went on to score twice for St. Maries (4-1-1 IML) which advanced to play Bonners Ferry in a one-two seed matchup to decide the district championship on Thursday.

   Alex Irujo and Michael Taylor each came up with six saves for Priest River, which suffered a 7-0 senior night loss to Bonners Ferry leading up to the district tournament.

First half — 1, SM, Brett Dickman (Thomas Cook), 15:00. 2, SM, Ryan McNulty (Victor Grogan), 22:00. 3, Thomas Cook (Brett Dickman), 29:00. Second half — 4, SM, Thomas Cook (Austin Cordell, Jesse Suchoski), 43:00. 5, SM, Jesse Suchoski (Austin Cordell), 49:00. 6, Kyle Jarvi (Jesse Suchoski), 66:00.
