BAINBRIDGE - The Bainbridge varsity boys soccer team returned to the field for the season debut game at home Friday, March 21 against Roosevelt High and managed a shutout 2-0 victory.

BHS senior and team co-captain William Economy was the standout Spartan offensive player of the game, said BHS Head Coach Ian McCallum, and scored both of the team’s goals.

“Bainbridge scored in the 38th and 78th minute off goal[s] from William Economy,” he explained.

“The first goal was scored off a shot from the right side of the box. The second, William faked out the keeper before dribbling around him to place it into the open net,” McCallum said.

Spartan sophomore goalie Devon Reynolds kept the BHS net clear throughout the game.

“Roosevelt are a very good team, strong [and] very physical, but they play very good controlled soccer,” McCallum said. “This was a good win for the Spartans.”

McCallum said that every BHS player gave debut performances worth being proud of, but awarded his personal “Man of the Match” award to BHS senior and team co-captain Ben Freedman.
