Wolverines Fall to Polar Bears 12-6

Bridgton Academy played a strong first half on Friday while taking on Bowdoin College, however fell apart in the second half before going on to drop a 12-6 decision to the Polar Bears.

The Wolverines struck first early in the game to take a 1-0 lead on a goal from Kane Henderson (West Linn, OR), however Bowdoin was able to answer each time the Wolverines were able to find the net in the first half before ultimately taking a 5-4 lead into halftime. With the game in striking distance down just one goal, the Wolverines quickly saw the game slip away from them trailing 9-5 entering the final quarter. Despite some late game comback bids earlier in the season the Wolverines just did not have one in them this time as the Polar Bears cruised to a 12-6 win.

Henderson was able to record three goals, while Ben Cullen (Huston, TN) added two, and Dave Rothenberg (Scranton, PA) scored the teams 6th goal.

Lacrosse will return to action this Wednesdday when they take on Cape Elizabeth High School in a 4PM game, right here at Bridgton Academy.
