Holding It Down

Bourne High School’s Ben Hopwood shields the ball away from a Fairhaven High School defender during action on Monday afternoon.

Another close affair went the wrong way for the Bourne High School boys’ soccer team as they lost by a single goal for the third time in four games this season. The team fell to 1-3 overall thanks to a 2-1 loss on the road at Seekonk High School on Wednesday, September 22.

Coach Andrew Arki said that the game was a very close “50-50 battle” between the teams, but Seekonk was able to hold off the effort of BHS. The lone goal for Bourne came on a penalty kick that was put home by Shea Ullo. Quinn Moriarty drew the foul for BHS in the box and Ullo put away the shot.

Zack Dodge had a strong overall game with four solid crosses and three shots on target. Thomas Sullivan made 12 tackles in the game and cleared the area out seven times.

Down twice in the game, the Bourne High School boys’ soccer team rallied to tie Fairhaven on Monday, September 20. In the end, though, the Devils were able to secure a 3-2 victory with a goal midway through the second half to upend the Canalmen.

Shea Ullo scored both goals for the Canalmen. The first came on a bomb from 30 yards away, and his second one tied the game at 2-2 on a penalty kick that beat the goalie to the corner.

Jacob Roux had a great game defensively for the team. Shane Murray made five saves and played great late in the game.

The contest was certainly spirited. The teams nearly came to blows late in the first half as the chippy affair reached a boiling point. Fairhaven had one player removed from the game via a red card and the visitors were cited for four yellow cards in the game.
