The North Harrison boys’ varsity soccer team might not have won the team first place title in the Charlestown Soccer Invitational Saturday, but Hector Bautista still had a great day for the, scoring five goals in the two games played.
Salem won 6-5 over North Harrison in the first round, with Bautista scoring a hat trick of goals (3) in this contest.
“We shouldn’t have lost that game,” said North Harrison coach Duane Boady. “We overplayed in the first half. In the second half, we got careless offensively and defensively.”
Boady said that he thought they got outplayed around the mid field area, losing possession of the ball to Salem in the process. “We got outplayed in the midfield,” he said.
In the consolation game, North Harrison defeated Home School Union 5-2.
Bautista scored a pair of goals in the game, and had help from three other team mates, Colin Book, Tyler Bement, and Jared Richards. Each of them scored a goal in the game.
“Every now and then, it’s nice to get a win,” Boady said. “My heart’s a little broken from that first game.”
“We played strong,” Boady continued. “Anytime you get a win, that’s a cherry atop the sundae.”
Boady also was especially pleased with the steady play of goal keeper Taylor Starcer, who played his first ever varsity matches in the two games North Harrison played Saturday.
