P.R. boys play their best game

Print Article

   ST. MARIES — Sometimes it’s more than just wins and losses that decides the success of a season. Sometimes it’s a team, who came into the year knowing the odds were stacked against them, that continues to overcome odds, compete, and improve all season regardless of the final score. The Spartans (0-8, 0-5 IML) are just that team — taking a 9-nil loss at St. Maries but making the Lumberjacks earn the win after playing their best game of the season. “The St. Maries game was our best to date,” Spartan coach Brody Everett said. “We were able to get out there and get some very good looks at the goal, a couple of which could’ve easily gone in. It was very encouraging as a coach to see that going into the tail end of the season.”

   Priest River came up with three shots on goal and Michael Taylor had four saves for the Spartans, who host Bonners Ferry Thursday night for their senior night game starting at 7 p.m.

   “If we can remain as aggressive as we were at St. Maries then I feel that we have a very good chance to get on the board against a very talented team in Bonners Ferry,” Everett said.

   As the Intermountain League’s #4 seed the Spartans will play the top-ranked Bonners Ferry Badgers at the district tournament this Saturday, Oct. 6 starting at 1 p.m. at Lakeland.
