The Bruins' season came to an end in the first round of the State Tournament with a 2-1 home loss to the Timpview Thunderbirds.
After trading possession through the midfield for the first 5 minutes of the game, the Bruins dominated the next 30 minutes, consistently pinning the T-birds in their defensive end and attacking the T-bird box. Multiple times the Bruins seemed on the verge of putting one in the net, only to come up empty against the scrambling T-bird defense. With 5 minutes left in the half, the T-birds got their first shot on goal as a T-bird forward slipped a ball under charging keeper Zac Bryant. Elias Lartey cleared the ball at the goal line, denying the score, but over the next several minutes the T-bird offense attacked forward, putting heaving pressure on the Bruin defense. In the 38th minute, a free kick from 10 yards outside the right corner of the penalty box was headed home by the T-birds, sending the Bruins into halftime with a 1-0 deficit.
Down a score despite dominating the first half possession and opportunities, the Bruins came out looking to quickly net the equalizer. In the 15th minute, Jackson McBride received the ball wide left in the offensive third, cut inside to the top of the penalty box, and pounded a ball past the T-bird keeper to even the score at 1-1. Energized by the goal, the Bruins attacked the T-bird defense, sending several dangerous balls into the box that just barely missed connecting with Bruin heads or feet. With the Bruins pushing forward, the T-bird counterattack generated a handful of scoring threats that the Bruin back line and defensive midfield fended off. In the 75th minute, the T-birds played a ball from wide right that deflected off a Bruin defender into the goal. Down 2-1 with time running out, the Bruins sent several corner services across the face of the T-bird goal, but none found the back of the net. Final score Bruins 1 - T-birds 2.
The Bruins celebrated Senior night by earning a share of the Region 7 championship with a 1-0 win over the Orem Tigers.
In a hard, physical contest between the two rival squads, the Tigers started strong, winning balls, controlling the run of play, and pinning the Bruins in their own defensive half for much of the first 10 minutes. Withstanding the early pressure, the Bruins responded by picking up their own intensity and ball movement, finding the feet of forwards Sam Peery and James Pena who combined on several dangerous opportunities in the box. Midway through the first half, Sam found himself 1v1 with the charging Orem keeper. The keeper won the challenge, guessing correctly and sliding into Sam's shot as he slotted it towards the right post. Continuing to attack, the Bruins put shots right, left, and over the goal as they dominated the scoring opportunities through the next 20 minutes. With the clock well into the 40th minute, Facundo Soto drove a corner service to the top of the goalie box where Elder Aguayo rose high to challenge the Orem keeper for the ball. The challenge deflected the ball to James, which was bad news for the Orem Tigers as James delivered a shot through two defenders to give the Bruins the 1-0 halftime lead.
The second half tested the Bruins' commitment to defense from start to finish. With Orem attacking relentlessly throughout the half, keeper Zac Bryant made several key saves to keep the Tigers out of the net. The back line of Elias Lartey, Kade Hernandez, and Zach Palmer, fronted by midfielders Tony Ramirez, Max Ortiz, and McKay Kelly, stayed organized under pressure, stepping in to win balls and deflect shots. Between corners and free kicks, Orem played a half dozen balls into the box that required a total team defensive effort to clear. The Bruins weren't without their own opportunities in the half, as James, Sam, Jackson McBride, and Isai Mendoza all had shots that tested the Orem keeper. As the whistle sounded after 80 minutes, the Bruins celebrated a well-earned 1-0 win, a season sweep of crosstown rival Orem, a championship (shared with Skyline) in one of the toughest regions in the state, and an opportunity to play for a state championship over the next two weeks. Go Bruins!
In a Region 7 championship showdown, the Bruins suffered a tough 1-0 loss to the Skyline Eagles on the Eagles' home field.
Through the first half, neither the Bruins nor the Eagles were able to mount a serious offensive threat, as intense defensive effort resulted in hard, physical challenges that stifled both offenses.
With the scoreboard showing zeros, the Bruins came out after halftime and began to control possession, resulting in multiple opportunities at goal. While the Bruins pressed the attack, the Eagles generated several dangerous counterattacks that the Bruin back line scrambled to fend off. In the 69th minute, the Eagles pressured and won a ball in the Bruin defensive third and forced a Bruin foul in the penalty box. The Eagles buried the PK and held on over the final 10 minutes for the 1-0 win.
The Bruins scored 2 goals in less than 2 minutes in the second half to overcome a 2-1 deficit and defeat the Murray Spartans 3-2 in a key Region 7 matchup.
The first half started with the Bruins moving the ball effectively against the Spartan defense. After several denied opportunities, the Bruins scored first when Isai Mendoza was fouled in the Spartan penalty area. James Pena netted the PK to give the Bruins the 1-0 lead after 15 minutes. The Bruin lead lasted only 5 minutes as the Spartans were awarded and made their own PK in the 20th minute. The Bruins and Spartans traded possession and scoring opportunities over the next 10 minutes as each team battled to break the tie before halftime. Unfortunately for the Bruins, the Spartans earned the 2-1 halftime lead when they buried a 25 yard shot in the 31st minute.
The second half saw the Bruins' effort and energy go unrewarded through the first 30 minutes as the score remained 2-1 despite several promising opportunities. With time running down and the Spartans seemingly in control, Raul Lievano turned on a ball in the midfield circle and quickly slotted a pass to Elder Aguayo making a run down the right side. Receiving the ball just outside the 18 yard box, Elder struck the ball low and hard past the charging Spartan goalie to pull the Bruins even with the Spartans at 2-2. Feeding off the increased energy created by Elder's goal, the Bruins pressured defensively and attacked forward, not satisfied with the tie. In the 36th minute, less than 2 minutes after scoring the tying goal, the Bruins struck again when James Pena's shot rebounded off the goal to a crashing Levi Bergen who stepped around a defender at the top of the goalie box and poked the ball into the net. Final score Bruins 3 - Spartans 2.
The Bruins scored two in each half to beat the Timpanogos T-Wolves 4-0 and complete the regular season sweep of their crosstown rivals.
Rivalry games often raise emotions, and it took the Bruins a little while to settle into the game and find their rhythm. Moving the ball from sideline to sideline, the Bruins pressured the T-Wolf midfield and defensive line with crisp passing and good movement off the ball. James Pena, Sam Peery, and Levi Bergen all produced shots on goal before James found the net in the 21st minute for the Bruins first score. On the play, James, cutting across the top of the goalie box, scissored a perfectly played cross from Tony Ramirez past the T-Wolf keeper into the side net. Ten minutes later, with the T-Wolf defense giving him too much space, James went upper-right 90 from the left corner of the 18-yard box for his second goal and a 2-0 Bruin lead going into the half.
The T-Wolves started the second half aggressively pushing forward, looking for a goal to close the scoring gap. The Bruin defensive line of Zach Palmer, Jackson McBride, and Elias Lartey, aided by defensive midfielders Tony Ramirez, Max Ortiz, and McKay Kelly, proved unwilling to yield that goal. Between the posts, Zac Bryant easily cleaned up the few shots that made it past the defense. In the 68th minute, right-midfielder Luigi Mangini beat the T-Wolf defender on the right side, cut back to the middle across the top of the goalie box, and blasted a left-footed shot past the T-Wolf
keeper to make the score 3-0. Sam Peery finished the scoring in the 39th minute when the charging T-Wolf goalie mishandled the ball at the left corner of the penalty box and Sam chipped it over him. Final score Bruins 4 - T-Wolves 0.
On a warm spring afternoon in Salt Lake, the Olympus Titans scored once in the first half and twice in the second half to beat the Bruins 3 to 0. Through the first 25 minutes, both teams found it difficult to mount offensive attacks as the majority of the play centered around the midfield stripe. In the 28th minute, Olympus played wide to the left sideline and laced a cross into the Bruin box that a Titan forward poked into the back of the net to account for their first shot on goal and the 1-0 lead at halftime.
The first minutes of the second half looked like a repeat of the first half, with neither team able to penetrate the others' defense. Thirteen minutes in, Olympus scored their second goal when a Titan player was in the right spot to put in a ball deflected to the back post. Down 2-0 with 25 minutes to play, the Bruins began to generate more scoring opportunities of their own. Jackson McBride, on a nicely slotted cross from Levi Bergen, slipped the ball past the goalie only to have it deflect off the back post. Max Ortiz and the Titan goalie fought for a 50-50 ball just a few feet outside the goal, only to have the call go the goalie's way. Pushing the attack but unable to get a goal to draw closer, the Bruins ceded the final Olympus goal with under two minutes to play. Final score, Bruins 0 - Titans 3.
You have to love soccer. One team possesses the ball for 80% of the game. The same team out-shoots the other team by seemingly a bazillion to one. And the score? 0-0.
That's the position the Bruins found themselves in heading into the last 10 minutes of their Region 7 game with the Corner Canyon Chargers. Despite controlling the game, generating a handful of solid opportunities on goal, and not allowing a shot on goal for the first 55 minutes of the game, the Bruins found themselves knotted at zeroes with a feisty Charger team unwilling to yield a goal. But with the Bruins attacking relentlessly in an aggressive 3-4-3 formation, the team rewarded their faithful fans with the winning goal in the 72nd minute. Max Ortiz, after stepping in on a Charger player in the midfield to win what seemed like his bazillionth challenge of the game, played a nice ball to Parker Hedrick making a vertical run up the center of the field. Parker sidestepped the charging Charger goalie, pushing the ball towards the left post, and slotted the ball into the back of the net for the 1-0 Bruin win. Goalie Zac Bryant, with his posse of defenders led by Kade Hernandez, Elias Lartey, and Facundo Soto, earned the shutout.
James Pena netted goals in the first 10 minutes and last 10 minutes to lead the Bruins to a 2-0 victory over crosstown rival Timpanogos.
The T-Wolves opened the game moving the ball from sideline to sideline as they looked for opportunities to play balls upfield through any openings created by their movement. Not content to sit back and let the T-Wolves maintain possession, the Bruins attacked with their forwards, pressuring the T-Wolves backline into frequent bad passes that were intercepted by the Bruin midfielders. Eight minutes in, the Bruins stepped in front of a T-Wolf pass in the midfield and played the ball wide to the left sideline. A foul between the penalty box and sideline resulted in a perfectly served ball from Max Ortiz to James Pena at the top of the goal box. James outpositioned two T-Wolf defenders to get his head on the ball and send it past the keeper into the back post sidenet. The Bruins generated several more scoring opportunities over the next 30 minutes while shutting down the T-Wolves attack. The first half ended Bruins 1 - T-Wolves 0.
While possession in the second half was split fairly evenly between the two teams, the Bruins' scoring opportunities far outnumbered the T-Wolves. Midway through the half, Levi Bergen looked to put the Bruins up by 2 goals with a shot on the back post. Unfortunately, the back post favored the T-Wolves instead of the Bruins, sending Levi's shot ricochetting unrewarded back beyond the top of the penalty box. With under 5 minutes left, James Pena received a ball on the right side of the midfield heading towards goal. With the T-Wolf defender riding his back and trying to shoulder past him, James fended him off and slotted the ball past the goalie to give the Bruins their second goal and the 2-0 victory. Zac Bryant, fronted by Elias Lartey, Kade Hernandez, Zach Palmer, and Facundo Soto, earned the shutout.
The Bruins apparently like to play on the road. Or maybe they like to play on artificial turf. Either way, Tuesday's 2-1 defeat of the Murray Spartans on their field was a great rebound game after two tough home losses the week before.
In typical fashion, the Bruins controlled much of the possession in the first half, doing a nice job of winning 50-50 balls in the midfield and playing wide to create space in the offensive half for the forwards. A handful of shots from outside the penalty area, most from midfielder James Pena, kept the Spartan keeper awake but couldn't find the back of the net. The Bruin defense, however, shut down the Spartan attack, not allowing a shot on goal in the half. With the first half winding down, Levi Bergen won the endline on the right side of the penalty area and played the ball back to Raul Lievano at the 18-yard line. Raul, making a great outside of the foot turn on the ball, slotted his pass across the top of the penalty box to Irvin Valencia coming in from the left side. Irvin's 20-yard strike to the back net put the Bruins up 1-0 heading into halftime.
Switching from their usual 3-5-2 formation to a less aggressive 4-3-3 formation to start the second half, the Bruins continued to shut down the Spartan attack while mounting their own. Twelve minutes into the half, outside defensive back Zach Palmer, joining the attack in the Bruins offensive third, slotted a perfect ball from outside of the left penalty box corner to James Pena coming in on the right side of the box. James finished the play, putting the ball past the Spartan keeper and giving the Bruins a 2-0 lead. The Bruins continued to control the game, shutting down the Spartan attack until a goal in the final minutes let the Spartans avoid the shutout. Final score Bruins 2 - Spartans 1.
Remember the Titans? I don't think so. The Bruins will want to put this disappointing 2-1 loss to the Olympus Titans behind them as quickly as possible as they move towards the midpoint of their Region 7 schedule with a record of 2 wins and 2 losses.
Just 8 minutes into the first half, Olympus found the net on a quick counter. Unphased by the early deficit, the Bruins evened the score in the 16th minute when Levi Bergen took a hit from 25 yards that cleared the leaping goalie. Playing most of the remainder of the first half in the Titans end of the field, the Bruins generated several more opportunities that failed to net a goal, and the half closed with the score Bruins 1 - Titans 1.
In the second half, the Bruins and Titans split possession and opportunities equally. James Pena, Levi Bergen, Parker Hedrick, Isai Mendoza, and Facundo Soto each had shots in the Titans box that were deflected by Titan defenders at the last moment. Olympus, possessing the ball well and moving it crisply from sideline to sideline, played several through balls that placed pressure on the Bruin defenders. The back line of Elias Lartey, Kade Hernandez, and Zach Palmer responded aggressively to stop the Titans' opportuntities, unwilling to yield the go-ahead goal. Regulation ended with the scored tied 1-1.
The Bruins started the overtime period looking to end the game quickly. A shot from Facundo Soto at the top of the penalty box was blocked by a lunging Titan defender, deflecting over to Cris Zamorano who tested the Titan keeper with a well-struck ball on goal. Clearing the ball to midfield, the Titans then played the ball to the Bruins defensive corner. With the Bruins unable to win and clear the ball, a Titan forward fired a left-footed shot five yards inside the endline on the left penalty box line. The ball found the net after ricocheting off the post and the back of goalie Zac Bryant. Final score Bruins 1 - Titans 2.
24 Mar 2015 - Bruins Suffer First Loss
If time of possession and shots on goal decided which team won, the Bruins would have come away with an easy victory over the Skyline Eagles Tuesday afternoon. Instead, they ended up on the wrong side of a 2-0 score.
The Bruins gave up a goal in the 15th minute on a counter-attack by the Eagles, which proved to be Skylines only real threat of the half. Down early, the Bruins generated multiple opportunities the remainder of the half, but couldn't find the equalizing goal. Bruins 0 - Eagles 1 at halftime.
The second half proved to be more of the same, with the Bruins putting pressure on the Eagles in the midfield and offensive third but unable to find the net. With under 2 minutes remaining, the Eagles scored their second goal on a corner to the front post. Final score Bruins 0 - Eagles 2.
Toto, we're not in football and basketball seasons anymore!
Under the lights on Friday night on Tiger field, the Bruin soccer team showed that Orem may rule the gridiron and hardcourts this year, but not the pitch, as the Bruins came away with a well-earned 2-0 victory. The contest saw both teams generate scoring opportunities throughout the night, but the difference was the Bruins ability to finish once in each half. In the 17th minute, freshman Jackson McBride, making a run from the left sideline to the penalty arc, received a nicely placed through ball from Parker Hedrick. With half a step on his defender, Jackson slotted the ball from the top of the penalty box under the charging Tiger goalie to just inside the far right post, giving Jackson his first Mountain View goal and the Bruins the 1-0 lead.
Down a goal to start the second half, Orem increased their intensity and pushed forward in the attack. The Bruins responded, with Elias Lartey, Kade Hernandez, Zach Palmer, and Tony Ramirez turning away several dangerous quick strike opportunities early in the half. As the half progressed, the play and the challenges became more physical, with the referee handing out multiple yellow cards to both teams. Midway through the the half, the speed and skill of the Bruin midfield and forwards began to wear on the Tiger defense and the Bruins began to assert more control of the field, pressing forward in an attempt to secure a second goal. With less than two minutes to play, Parker Hedrick won the ball in the Bruins offensive third and took it wide to the left corner. With Facundo Soto making a run down the center of the field, Parker hit a perfectly placed service to Facundo at the top of the goalie box that Facundo, flying in at full speed, headed into the net for the goal. Final score Bruins 2 - Tigers 0, with Zac Bryant getting the shutout in goal.
The Bruins netted late goals in each half to win their region opener 2-0 over Corner Canyon.
Playing a 3-5-2 formation for most of the game, the Bruins controlled the midfield, pulling the Chargers wide and generating opportunities for the Bruin forwards and midfielders in the center of the field. James Pena, Parker Hedrick, Tony Ramirez, Levi Bergen, and Jackson McBride all had cracks on goal during the first 30 minutes, while Elias Lartey,
We looked good, but not quite as effective as I believe we will become. We played a lot of 3-5-2 today. It's an aggressive formation, but I think with the quality of players we have, we might be playing that formation more.
Kade Hernandez, Facundo Soto, and Zach Palmer shut down any attacks that made it through the midfield. Despite the opportunities, the game looked to be tied at zeros going into halftime until the 38th minute when Parker Hedrick slotted a ball into a slanting James Pena just outside the penalty box. Showing some quick footwork and ball control, James split two defenders and from 15 yards lined the ball past the goalie for a 1-0 halftime lead.
The second half was much the same as the first, with the Bruins dominating time of possession and midfield play. Despite controlling the game and having better movement both on and off the ball than in the first half, the Bruins couldn't capitalize and found themselves still seeking a security goal heading into the final 10 minutes. Then, in the 75th minute, the team combined on a series of passes through the midfield, with Max Ortiz playing a perfectly weighted ball into Parker Hedrick as Parker slipped behind the defenders. One-on-one with the Charger goalie, Parker finished the play, putting the ball in the back of the net and putting the Bruins up 2-0. The game ended Bruins 2 - Chargers 0, with Zac Bryant picking up the shutout in goal.
10 Mar 2015 On a gusty night in Highland, the Bruins overcame a first half deficit to tie the Lone Peak Knights 1-1 in their final tuneup before opening region play, wrapping up their preseason slate of games with a record of 3 wins and 1 tie.
The Bruins started with energy, possessing the ball in their offensive end of the field for most of the first 10 minutes. Not allowing the Bruins any dangerous threats during that time, the Knights began to find a rhythm in their passing game. Moving the ball from sideline to sideline and midline to endline, the Knights attacked the Bruins repeatedly over the next 15 minutes. In the 26th minute, a Lone Peak
Of all of our games, this was probably our best learning experience. Learning how to handle pressure, elements like the wind, and a tough athletic team. This should make us a better team. -Coach Mark Graham
shot from the top of the 18 yard box found its way inside the left post to give the Knights the 1-0 lead.
After halftime, the Bruins and Knights traded opportunities, with goalie Zac Bryant playing big to block several close range shots. In the 64th minute, the Bruins thought they had the equalizing goal when Facundo Soto received a ball in the center of the field going towards goal. Facundo beat the goalie with a nicely slotted net shot, only to look over and see the assistant referee with his flag in the air signaling offsides. The near miss seemed to energize the Bruins as they continued to attack the Knight defense. In the 72nd minute, Parker Hedrick intercepted a ball in the left flats, attacked the box forcing the goalie to come out, and slipped the ball by him for the goal. Regulation ended with the game tied 1-1. No overtime was played.
The Bruins overcame a sluggish start to beat the Hillcrest Huskies 3-1 in their third preseason game. Possessing the ball and dictating the run of play for much of the first half, the Bruins had nothing to show for multiple offensive opportunities through the first 25 minutes of play. In the 28th minute, James Pena was taken down in the box while collecting a cross from Max Ortiz. James netted the PK to put the Bruins up 1-0 at half.
The second half started much better for the Bruins, as pressure defense and crisp ball movement led to two goals within the first 20 minutes. Just 3 minutes in, Parker Hedrick received a ball in the center of the field, cut back to his right past 3 Husky defenders, and pounded the ball into the back of the net from the top of the 18 yard box. Fifteen minutes later, freshman Chris Zamorano laid the ball off from the center top of the 18 yard box to freshman Elder Aguayo making a run on the left of the box. Elder finished the ball into the back post side net for the first goal of his Bruin career.
Up 3-0 with 20 minutes to play, Coach Mark Graham substituted freely, giving playing time to both Varsity and JV players. The Bruins continued to press forward offensively, maintaining possession and control of the game while having several dangerous scoring opportunities. With under 10 minutes to go, Hillcrest won a ball in the midfield and capitalized on one of their few shots for the game, making the final score Bruins 3 - Huskies 1.
The Vikings came to pillage and plunder. The Bruins would have none of it.
In a dazzling display of speed, skill, and tenacity, the Bruins turned a 1-0 halftime deficit to the Pleasant Grove Vikings into a convincing 2-1 victory that could have been much worse. The Bruins came out ready to play, controlling the game for the first 10 minutes through a combination of ball possession and quick attacks. Unfortunately, the squad was unable to take advantage of their early opportunities and Pleasant Grove, having staved off the Bruin attack, began to mount their own attack.
I thought the guys did an outstanding job in the second half. We were very creative with our play, leading to some great scoring opportunities. I like what I saw.
In the 14th minute, Bruin goalie Zac Bryant laid out to his right to save a Viking shot rocketed from 30 yards out. Ten minutes later, however, an errant ball through the midfield provided a quick counterattack for the Vikings and they capitalized, putting a well-placed ball into the net.
Down 1-0, the Bruins picked up their intensity, winning 50-50 balls and throwing numbers forward into the attack. While no scoring resulted, the Bruins ended the half with momentum on their side, even if the scoreboard read Bruins 0 - Vikings 1.
The Bruins struck quickly in the second half. In the 45th minute, Parker Hedrick stripped the ball from a Viking defender in the midfield, won the endline, and threaded a pass to the top of the goalie box where James Pena, in a brilliant display of foot skills and body control, popped the ball over his right shoulder, turned on it, and scissored it left-footed into the back of the net. Bruins 1 - Vikings 1.
Combining their pressure defense with creative offensive playmaking, the Bruins continued to attack the Vikings, looking for the go-ahead goal. Over the next 10 minutes, Parker Hedrick and Max Ortiz both tested the Viking goalie one-on-one, only to be denied. In the 67th minute, the Bruins broke through when Isai Mendoza took a ball on the right side of the goalie box, cut back to the middle and fired the ball into the opposite side net. Bruins 2 - Vikings 1.
The Vikings redoubled their efforts over the final 10 minutes, generating several dangerous opportunities, but Zac Bryant, fronted by Elias Lartey, Kade Hernandez, Zach Palmer, Max Ortiz, and Austin Gibson, repelled each attempt. When the final whistle blew, the Bruins had picked up their second win in two preseason outings.
The Bruins started the season in fine form, taking a 2-1 decision at American Fork in overtime. Controlling possession for the majority of the first half, the Bruins scored first in the 27th minute when Parker Hedrick was taken down in the box by a beaten Caveman. After having his PK blocked by the AF goalie, James Pena calmly put the rebound into the back of the net. The Bruins had several other good scoring chances in the first half but could not convert. Meanwhile, the defensive line shut down the Caveman attack, leaving the score Bruins 1 - Cavemen 0 at halftime.
For a first game, we did more good things than bad things. We played better in some aspects than I expected. We need to continue to become more unified, confident, and composed as a team. Overall, though, I was very happy with what we did.
AF came out strong in the second half, generating an offensive attack that kept the Bruins pinned in their defensive third for several minutes. In the 50th minute, a Caveman corner, redirected from the top of the 18-yard box, was netted by an AF player. Energized by the equalizing goal, the Cavemen continued to pressure the Bruins. The two teams traded possession and opportunities for the remainder of the half, with regulation ending in a 1-1 tie.
In overtime, the Bruins possessed the ball, but the AF defense stifled any scoring threats. In the 97th minute, an endline chip across the face of the goal to the back post found Max Ortiz, who headed the ball to the feet of Parker Hedrick. Parker finished the play, burying the ball in the back of the goal for the 2-1 win!
