The Bucksport Golden Bucks Boys' Soccer Team defeated the Searsport Vikings 5-0 on Thursday, September 8th.

Thanks to John Boynton IV for the following recap

The game started out fast for the Vikings who forced the Bucks' goalie Jake Williams to make a diving save in the first minute. Then play began to balance as both teams worked the ball through the middle of the field but in the 8th minute Evan Donnell headed in a rebound to put the Bucks up 1-0. Play remained fairly balanced with both teams getting chances until the 31st minute when Diego Harvey split the Viking defense finding Evan Donnell in the middle to put the Bucks up 2-0 going into the half.

The second half saw the Bucks depth allow them to pull away as they began to control possession. Evan Donnell would score two more goals in the second half and Malachi Gardiner-Botta would net one of his own to see the game end 5-0 in favor of the Bucks.

Searsport goalie Ravon Carbisiero had 15 saves on 43 shots while Bucksport goalie Jake Williams had 7 saves on 14 shots.
