Bees show signs in 4-2 loss to Indians

FAIRMONT — Against one of the best girls’ soccer teams in the area — the state, too — East Fairmont held its own.

And while the average person might contend it maybe took the Bees a bit too long to get going Tuesday in what would turn out to be a 4-2 loss to Bridgeport at East-West Stadium, coach Mark Harvath would beg to differ.

“We were right there — we had three point blank (scoring chances) in the first five minutes of the game. We played exactly like we needed to play to be successful,” he said.

East, now 10-7-3 on the year, certainly finished strong.

Kept off the scoreboard all night despite some great chances, the Bees found the net twice late in the second half. The first came on a scrum in front of the net after an East corner kick, which ended with Kristin Busund knocking in a header to trim the deficit to 4-1 with 4:49 left.

The Bees struck again barely a minute later when Brooklynn Weaver scored a goal in traffic to set the final.

“They didn’t fold. It was 4-0 and they put two on the board. They didn’t let it rattle them and stayed with the game plan,” Harvath said.
