BONNERS FERRY —- The Spartans were held scoreless on August 23 against the Bonners Ferry Badgers.

The Badgers attacked the Spartan defense with a barrage of attacks on goal. By the end of the night, the Bonners Ferry squad had scored a baker’s dozen of goals to end the night with a 13-0 win.

Spartan head coach Nick Tucker said the first half the team was aggressive and pressing up. He said his coaching focus is offense and the former head coach focused on defense. It is a “culture change” for the young team and a different form of tactics.

Priest River graduated several seniors that were core to the program.

“Time and experiences will make a huge difference for this team,” he said.

The Spartans will play the Badgers at the end of the season. Tucker said at that time Bonners Ferry will meet a completely different team.

On Saturday, Aug. 27, the Spartans will play Stillwater Christian in Kalispell, Mont.
