Last Friday, the Maple Mountain High Golden Eagles soccer team took on the Orem Tigers at their home field.   Holding their own, they played extremely well against a team with a nationally ranked player, Matt Gay, who scored both of Orem’s goals, one in each half.  The final score was 2-0 for the Tigers.   

Golden Eagles Coach Berrett said, “We’re a young team, playing well, but we’re still in that developing stage. Once we work through that stage, we’re a champion team.”

The team’s next game is Thursday, March 17, at Dixie.

The softball team played well in Monday’s scrimmage game. The game was scheduled to be the team’s first official game, but due to unwanted weather conditions, the game was cancelled midway through the second inning.

The score at the point of cancellation was 2 to 7 in Provo’s favor.  All of Provo’s points were obtained through walks, and our two points were made by a double by sophomore Britlee Anderson and a homerun by junior Haley Mecham contributing to a well played game by our Lady Golden Eagles.

“I expect us to go to state,” said sophomore Josey Hartman.
