WELLS RIVER – On Monday, September, 11th the Bucks hosted Paine Mountain. It was a silent first half for both teams but early into the second half Paine Mountain cracked things wide open scoring four goals and ultimately defeating Blue Mountain 4-0. Blue Mountain held their own throughout the first half putting multiple shots on goal; with the closest attempt coming from a corner kick from senior Karli Blood that narrowly missed the head of Senior Jordan Alley. Senior Destiny Campbell led Paine Mountain with her first goal coming at 35:03 from just outside the 18.

Paine Mountain never looked back putting on a ferocious display of scoring as Destiny Campbell scored her second shortly after with 25 minutes left to play.  Paine Mountain freshman Hannah Spencer would follow with two goals of her own coming at 19:25 and 16:51 to bury the Bucks. Blue Mountain suffered two injuries early in the second half to key personnel with freshman Addison Murray suffering a back injury that sidelined her for the rest of the second half and freshman Tori Florentine suffering an ankle sprain which would also take her out of the game.

According to Blue Mountain Head Coach Parish Eiskamp, “We lost a lot of 50/50 balls today [and] they had a bunch of opportunities and we didn’t.” Eiskamp is not discouraged and states that “I think they work hard they seem to have a good time as a whole. I’ve been very impressed, we lost some players to graduation and we had a player transfer and they came out in our first two scrimmages and I was really impressed with the way they played.” Blue Mountain is very upper classmen heavy and senior Captain Jordan Alley had this to say about the freshman “throughout the season our injuries will come and go and our numbers will always be effected but I’m excited for the younger girls to be able to step up and really play to their potential once they’re used to the different level of play and they’re not so anxious”.  As the Bucks drop to 0-1 they host the Hazen Wildcats at 4:30 on Wednesday, September 13th.
