JDHS defeats Bothell High School in Seattle

The Juneau-Douglas High School boys soccer team beat Bothell High School on Friday to close their Seattle trip with two wins out of three games.

The boys notched their second positive result in Washington with the 3-2 win.

JDHS scored their first goal 10 mins into the game on a header from senior defender Garrett Mayer. Mayer is the Crimson Bears’ “go-to guy” on corners this season according to coach Gary Lehnhart. Senior midfielder Oswaldo Magallenes played Mayer the assist on a corner kick.

JDHS’ JJ Mosher scored from a distance to put the Crimson Bears up 2-0 before halftime.

“John Scudder played a ball long that they headed out and it came to JJ Mosher,” Lehnhart said. “He was about 35 yards out and he hit an absolute cannon. It was one of the prettier goals you’re going to see.”

The Crimson Bears got their third goal at the start of the second half off a corner kick play JDHS has dubbed “Margaret.” JDHS played a short corner with two players and dribbled the ball into Bothell’s box. Magallenes earned his second assist laying the ball off to Ben Undurraga for the goal.

With the lead, the Crimson Bears got a little complacent according to Lehnhart, and let Bothell slip back into the game late. JDHS played the last 18 minutes with a one-goal advantage but came away with the win.

The Crimson Bears play next at Ketchikan April 22; their next home game is against Service at 7:45 p.m. at Adair-Kennedy field.
