Fort Kent boys secure senior night win over Owls
FORT KENT, Maine — The Fort Kent Community High School boys varsity soccer team secured a 2-1 victory over the Madawaska Owls in Fort Kent on Tuesday, Sept. 22.
The game marked the season opener for both teams, and senior night for the Warriors. Senior night is traditionally held at the end of a season, but due to the uncertainties of COVID-19, many schools have opted to recognize seniors at the beginning of the season.
The Fort Kent offense dominated the first half of play as sophomore Keegan Cyr was first to strike with an unassisted goal for the Warriors. Warrior Noah Martin followed with a penalty kick to provide Fort Kent with a comfortable 2-0 lead going into halftime.
Madawaska answered early in the second half as Owl Carsen Cyr managed a high-right shot past Fort Kent goalkeeper Ethan Bouley.
However, the Owls were unable to follow up on that goal, and the Warriors pulled out the 2-1 win.
Prior to the game, the senior Warrior boys and their parents were recognized in a rose ceremony: Ethan Bouley, son of Carl and Cindy Bouley; Noah Martin, son of Mike and Sylvia Martin; Colby Theriault, son of Shawn Theriault and Angela and Jason Landeen; Dylan Hebert, son of Daniel and Angela Hebert and Jaren Hartt, son of Tracey and Evelyn Hartt.
