BHS (Broomfield HS, not the Bismarck HS / BHS normally associated with Dave) continues to roll through the Colorado Class 4A Boys Soccer playoffs with an easy 5-1 win over Fossil Ridge HS. Grace, Erin and I grabbed some Wendy’s burgers and headed over to the school to check out the match.
This was the first time I’d seen the team play and was surprised by the level of play. BHS is ranked #1 in the state and showed why with excellent play at both ends of the field. The defenders played as a single unit, holding a tight line of defense, but rarely making a run (I noticed just a single attack from the back during the game). The midfielders and forwards were all competent, but a few players in particular (Will Roberts, Carlos Mendez and Cole Chapleski) really shined last night, showcasing great individual skill.
And everyone hustled, which is something I try to instill in all the soccer teams I coach. It’s amazing how hustle can make up for games in size, speed and skill.
We’ll definitely need to get out to more games and show allegiance to our current BHS. Go Eagles!
