COEUR d’ALENE — Eoin Eddy’s goal in the 58th minute was the difference in the Bulldogs Inland Empire League win over the host Timberwolves, Sandpoint’s first over Lake City since Sept. 26, 2017.
“The boys came out lethargic and had low energy the first 20 minutes, but began to combine in the midfield and create some opportunities going forward,” Sandpoint coach Tanner French said. “We match up well with Lake City physically, however they were able to break down our defense fairly easily until we made adjustments.”
Benji Deming had three saves for Lake City (3-2-1, 3-2-0 IEL), which hosts Lewiston on Monday.
“Sandpoint is a strong side this year,” Lake City coach Kevin Jump said. “We felt unlucky that we didn’t win today. We controlled significant stretches of the game and we had them defending for their lives in the second half. Sometimes, when you have that much possession, it makes you vulnerable on defense. Although we outplayed Sandpoint for most of the match, in the end, we couldn’t finish our scoring chances.”

“This was a physical battle and a speed-of-play battle,” Charter coach Stacy Smith said. “It was St. George’s first game and they have some very talented youth. Our accuracy, speed of play, finishing and one-on-one defending was really put to the test due to the constant pressure. Thankfully we were able to work through some frustrating moments and find the back of the net with some powerful and creative play. Very proud of what we worked through and what we left in the field. Bekah (Hines) and our other upperclassman leaders did just that — they led. They led in their effort, their grit, their determination and their talent.”
