Warrior boys best Crusaders in 3-0 soccer win
FORT KENT, Maine — The Van Buren boys varsity soccer team put up a fight, but was no match for Fort Kent during the Warriors home opener on Thursday, Aug. 22.
The Warriors defeated the Crusaders 3-0. Jaren Hartt kicked in the first goal of the game and Colby Theriault added two more.
Keegan Cyr racked up two assists and Austin Delisle had one.
Fort Kent goalie Ethan Bouley made three saves, while Crusader Colby Lapointe managed to stop 10 attempts at goal.
“That’s one hurdle down; plenty more to come,” Warriors co-assistant coach Jermaine West said of the win.
The Fort Kent boys were the Class C runners up at the state championships last year and since then have lost eight seniors to graduation.
The young team proved capable on the field Thursday.
“They’re catching on quick,” said co-assistant coach Kimar Smith “Their attitude toward practice is spot on; they give 100 percent. We just need to sharpen them up more.”
The Warrior boys will next take on the Central Aroostook Panthers on Friday, Aug. 30, in Mars Hill.
