Bellevue rebounds for boys LAX win over Bainbridge
The Wolverines ran away from the Spartans with a 10-3 season-opening win Friday at Bellevue High School.
Bainbridge started strong and was up 2-0 after the first quarter.
But with Hank Bethke leading the two-time defending Division I state champs — he finished with four goals and two assists — the Wolverines scored five unanswered goals in the second quarter to pull away from Bainbridge.
Up 5-2 going into the third, the Wolverines peppered Spartans senior goaltender Reynolds Yarbrough with shots while its defense held Bainbridge to a single goal in the quarter and none in the fourth to secure the win.
Bellevue senior Eric Haehl had two goals, two assists and four ground balls while sophomore Chase Birkeland had a pair of goals.
Spartan senior Jackson Larkin had two goals for Bainbridge while Yarbrough was strong between the pipes and stopped 20 shots.
Bainbridge's Ben Laroche contributed one goal and three ground balls, while teammate Butch Makin had four ground balls.
The Spartans (0-1-0) next face Skyline (0-0-0) on Tuesday, March 18 in a 6 p.m. start at Bainbridge High School.
