Rats fall in district opener

Black River lost a heartbreaking game to Northpointe Christian 2-1 in a shootout.  Black River got on the scoreboard first at the 18 minute mark of the first half with a headball goal by Kyle Schreur (17th of the season) off a headball assist from Tom Bos.  The Rats played well and defended well until Northpointe was able to break through with a lofted shot with just over 15 minutes to play in the game.  The game remained tied at 1 for the rest of regualtion as well as two overtime periods as each team battled and had scoring opportunities.  After the scoreless overtime periods, the teams went to a shootout.  The Northpointe goalie was on his game and was able to stop the first three Black River attempts as Northpointe won the shootout 3-1.  The Rats ended the season with a 12-6-1 record.  This was the 9th season in a row, the program had at least 10 wins.  Kyle Schreur ended his season with 17 goals and is now in third place all time for goals in a season and also in third place for goals in a career with 33.  Kent Schwartz ended the year with 13 assists, that puts him in second place for assists in a season.

Varsity Volleyball Falls to Wellspring

Despite a slow start and loss to Wellspring it was exciting to see the Lady Rats climbing out of their slump.  Energy, commitment, and better passing allowed our setters, Caroline McKnight and Sydra Timmer, to put up some great opportunities for our attackers especially Sierra Hole.  We saw great play all around with focus on reading the play and defending well, which kept Wellspring out of system and giving Black River a lot of free balls to set up.

Varsity Volleyball falls to Zion on Senior Night

Lady Rats had a disappointing loss to a strong offensive Zion team.Black River struggled defensively and could not set up their usual offense.  It was definitely an off day, for our girls.  Despite hardships the team kept fighting.
