Congratulations to the senior boys' soccer team for a great effort and showing yesterday. They travelled to Welland to take on Jean Vanier and opened the scoring on a goal from Isaac deWard. The Bears had an opportunity to take a 2-0 lead on a penalty shot when deWard was taken down in the penalty area. The Lynx were able to tie it up just before the half. Both teams battled hard through the second half with no goals being scored. The game then went into overtime and there were still no goals. Unfortunately, in penalty kicks, the Bears lost. Boys' hold your heads up high as that was a great representation of who you are.
