Maple Mountain boys soccer team played tough in their first region game on March 30, coming out with a loss of 2-1 against Salem Hills High. Maple Mountain came out strong, but could not overcome the Skyhawk’s skills. What was thought by most to be a shut out for Salem, Maple Mountain’s new team held them off, scored the first goal, and had possession of the ball for most of the game. The game ended with a loss due to a debateable penalty kick, however, the boys competed with class and heart. Maple Mountain is off to a great start and is positive that this will be their first and only loss of the region season.
