The Canton Golden Bears JV boys soccer team faced off with the always tough Watertown Cyclones Wednesday on Roger Dusharm field. The 1st half was well played by both teams, each with good scoring opportunities. However, no one could put it in the back of the net until freshman Daniel Creurer, the Bears stopper, took a shot from outside the eighteen that hit the Cyclones goaltender and went into the net. The Bears held Watertown all the way through the rest of the 1st half.
The second half was a little tougher for the Bear’s defense and especially the Bear’s goalie Jackson Ames. Jackson made some exceptional saves while the defense tried their best to keep it out of the Bear’s zone. Ames ended the game with 15 saves. “It was a great win for our program. Watertown is one of the top soccer programs in the north country so for us to even play with them is huge. Also having the opportunity to play on Roger Dusharm field tonight was very motivational for the boys and may have given us the boost we needed. It is sad to see a field like that turned into a parking lot next year. Everyone who has grown up playing soccer for the Golden Bears has great memories on that field.” stated Bears head coach, Mike Wentworth.
The Bears play next against Massena on Friday at Home. Game time 5:00pm.
