Prep roundup: Forest Lake Christian edges Bear River on pitch

The Forest Lake Christian boys soccer team eked out a 1-0 victory against Bear River Tuesday, earning the Falcons some bragging rights over their neighboring high school.

Forest Lake Christian’s Daniel Marriot netted the winning goal on a free kick.

“He really bent it in there,” said FLC head coach Steve Koch.

Pitching the shutout was a combined effort from FLC goalies Noah Hussain and Kyle Soria. Hussain played the first half and Soria took over in the second half.
