BBCHS Loses High-Scoring Affair Against LWE

By Don Collins

 

 

BRADLEY, Illinois - The Bradley-Bourbonnais High School boys varsity soccer team lost versus Lincoln-Way East on Monday night (Sept. 24) by a final score of 6-3.

 

The first 15 minutes saw the contest scoreless before LWE scored a goal with 25:49 left in the first half. The proverbial lid was lifted off of the net for them as they managed to increase their lead to 3-0 after scoring additional goals at 12:53 and 6:12 remaining in the half.

 

The Boilermakers, running the risk of taking the three goal deficit into halftime, saw Lonnie Paden score with 20 seconds left. The goal was assisted by Pete Sorich and drew the deficit to 3-1.

 

After the break, Pete Sorich scored an unassisted goal with 36:04 on the clock to bring the Boilers within one. After Jack Jasmin was assessed a yellow card, LWE scored with 24:10 left in the game to take a 4-2 lead.

 

The back and forth match continued with Collyn Hopkins scoring off of a Sorich assist (18:08 2H) to bring BBCHS back within one, but that would be the closest the score would be on the night. LWE added two more goals at 15:22 and 1:39 left in the game to seal the victory.

COACH RO QUOTES

When asked to comment on the effort of the team on to begin the night, Coach Rohan Robinson offered some suggestions.

“I think our effort was a little bit down. We made adjustments in the second half. Once we came out I think we played better. The game is fluid, we need to just continuously play. Sometimes we take a little break and the moment you take that lapse in judgement…” --Coach Ro

 

All was not lost after the early deficit. The boys showed how they respond to adversity with their attempted comeback.

 

“If you continue playing and don’t give in, you will find what you are looking for. Tonight that’s what they did. We continually played hard. We got one back, then we got a second one back. We never gave up at all. That’s the direction we want to go in and have all season. Just keep pounding,” Robinson said.

 

UP NEXT

  • BBCHS will be at home once again on Tuesday, Sept. 25 when they take on Lincoln-Way Central. The game is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m.
