The Hazen Union High Wildcats ended the Lake Region Rangers season Friday with a 2-1 victory in overtime. Forward Jake Gilcris scored both goals for the Wildcats, to give them the edge they needed in a messy but exciting game.

Riley Urie, who would go on to kick for a hat trick, scored the Rangers first goal 44 seconds into the game. And from there they never looked back.

The Lake Region Union High School Rangers lost a hard fought battle with the Bellows Free Academy Fairfax (BFA) Bullets, 3-1, Friday afternoon. The Rangers — who came into the game at the top of their division and undefeated — knew they had their work cut out for them.

The game began on a high note, with both teams playing aggressively from the jump. The competition was heated, and the game play physical. The sight of bodies colliding, falling, and lying prone upon the pitch became a familiar one as the game progressed. These two evenly matched teams were vying hard for the upper hand, but the Bullets out-hustled the Rangers in the end.
