Bridgeport Mustangs drop final home game to Oroville


Bridgeport sophomore midfielder, Carlos Mariles, goes head-to-head with an Oroville player during last Thursday’s 3-0 loss to the visiting Hornets.

Florentino Martinez, shown with his father, Juan, mother, Marciana, and sisters, Karina, 5, and Monica, 9, was the lone senior on a roster of 35 players, honored during Senior Night during the Mustangs final home game of the season against Oroville.

BRIDGEPORT – It was Senior Night for the Bridgeport High School varsity soccer team, but even that special event could not stop the Oroville Hornets from handing the Mustangs a 3-0 loss in their final home stand last Thursday, April 27.
Despite several good shot opportunities on goal, the Mustangs could not get the ball past the Hornets goalkeeper in a fast, hard-fought battle on the pitch.
The Mustangs have faced a lineup of tough opponents in the North Central Washington 2B League this year and that, combined with a bench of young players have left Bridgeport with just one win against Liberty Bell in league action this season.
With just one league game remaining, the Mustangs are 1-8 in the NCW2B and 2-13 overall.
On the bright side, all but one player will be able to return to next year’s lineup as the Mustangs say goodbye to their only senior, Florentino Martinez. The bulk of this year’s team is comprised of 22 sophomores along with six each of juniors and freshmen.
The Mustangs were scheduled to play their final regular season game at undefeated Brewster Tuesday, May 2.
