Struggles continue for Spartan boys

Print Article

   Priest River 0, Northwest Christian 17:  COLBERT, Wash. — The Northwest Christian Schools, Inc. website states they encourage their athletes to apply, “Christian principles of commitment, obedience, dependability, respect, leadership, integrity, fortitude, sensitivity, humility, and loyalty” — but at least a few of those fine traits were forgotten when the Crusaders elected to run up the score on the way to a lopsided 17-0 win over Priest River.

   An unspoken but customary tradition, the coach of winning team will usually elect to pull all players back and not attempt another shot on goal after gaining an eight-point advantage.

   Northwest Christian led 5-0 in the first 10 minutes of the game, 11-0 by the break — but continued to tack on another six goals in the second half.

Keeper Alex Trujo came up with five saves between the posts for Priest River (0-5, 0-3 IML), which went on to play at Bonners Ferry on Saturday.

   Priest River 0, Bonners Ferry 7:  BONNERS FERRY — The Spartan boys soccer team suffered a 7-0 Intermountain League loss to a very strong Badger team on Saturday.

   Bonners Ferry led 5-0 at the break, but Priest River responded by holding them to only two more goals in the second half. The Spartans posted two shots in the loss.

   Freshman Michael Taylor found himself in the net for the first time and came up with five saves for Priest River (0-6, 0-4 IML), which hosted Sandpoint on Tuesday.

   Results were unavailable at press time.

   The Spartans travel to St. Maries this Thursday at 5 p.m.
