Published 3:46 pm Friday, March 8, 2019

The Bainbridge High School Bearcats cruised to an easy 8-0 victory in Albany versus the Monroe High School Tornadoes on Tuesday.

Opening the scoring in the 11th minute was Caleb Harris on an assist from Andru Matthews.  Cesar Chiguil scored in the 20th minute on a penalty kick opportunity following a Monroe handball in the penalty area.  The Bearcats added another goal in the 22nd minute from Harris, assisted again by Matthews.  A fourth goal was tacked on in the 31st minute by Mason Ard, and the assist went to Joe Emmons.  The Bearcats extended their lead in the 34th minute to 5-0 following a goal by Harris, assisted again by Emmons.  Just before half-time, a sixth goal was scored by Harris, assisted by Ard.  A seventh goal was scored by Jose Avalo in the 51st minute, his first ever varsity goal, and he was assisted by Luke Emmons.  Matt Hall rounded out the scoring in the 77th minute with a goal, also his first, assisted by Ashton Matthews.

The Bearcats were dominant in their performance.  The starting players possessed the ball well, and simply wore down Monroe as they chased the ball all over the field to try to regain possession.  That took a toll on them, and the goals began to come in rapid succession for Bainbridge.  It was great to be able to get some of the younger players some minutes of playing time so that they can get the necessary live game action to be better prepared in meaningful matches in the future.
