Two dominating wins to close out the non-region portion of their schedule last week gave the Bear River baseball team some momentum as they prepare for four three-game series against Region 11 foes to finish the regular season.

Last week was another trying one for the Bear River boys soccer team, which is still looking for its first win of the season.

That elusive victory nearly happened on Friday when Bear River hosted Ridgeline, but two last-minute goals by the visitors resulted in a heartbreaking loss for the Bears.

The home team took a 1-0 lead just two minutes into the game and held onto that lead until the final minute of regulation, when the Riverhawks equalized to send the match to overtime.

With time running out and the match appearing to be headed for a shootout, Ridgeline found the back of the net again in the final minute of the second overtime period to get out of Garland with a hard-fought win.

It was a physical match in which a Bear River player had to be taken away in an ambulance after a rough collision with a Riverhawks player early in the second half.

Following the injury to ??? and a long delay while team trainers and emergency medical personnel attended to him, the Bears came back inspired and nearly put the game away on two occasions. A fierce header by Tate Pedersen nearly got past the Ridgeline goalkeeper, and not long after the Bears were awarded a penalty kick when Gabe Dwaileebe was fouled inside the box on a breakaway.

Dwaileebe’s kick sailed wide right, leaving the door opener for the Riverhawks’ late equalizer and eventual game winner in overtime.

Earlier in the week, the Bears traveled to Sky View. The Bobcats took a 1-0 lead into halftime and added three second-half goals to take a 4-0 win.

This week brings two more chances for Bear River (0-5, 0-9) to get in the win column, but it won’t be easy as they face two of the top teams in Region 11. On Wednesday, the Bears will host second-place Mountain Crest, which dominated in an 8-1 victory in Hyrum on March 26. Then the Bears will then travel to North Logan on Friday to face Green Canyon, which headed into this week in first place. The Wolves topped the Bears 9-1 in Garland on March 31.
