Local roundup: Bear River soccer defeats Mesa Verde, 5-1

Bear River’s soccer team put in a sound effort, defeating Pioneer Valley League rival Mesa Verde 5-1 Thursday.

Cameron Lambert had a huge hand, er, foot, in the victory, slicing in a goal and adding two assists in the game.

David Beress opened the game’s scoring with a goal in the third minute. Lambert followed with his goal in the 10th minute and Danny Delaveaga booted in another before the half.

Mesa Verde got its first goal on a penalty kick outside the box, but the Bruins got a peculiar goal of their own when defender Justin Schuler lofted in a goal in the 73rd minute from center field.

Beress concluded the day’s scoring with an assist from Eddie Millington. The Bruins are now 3-3-4 in the PVL and 6-5-5 overall.
