The final shift was a free for all with all players of each team on the field at the same time. It was a hard fought battle but Team 1 came out on top with a 6-3 win.
"Both teams improved and played hard. They both show promise for the Eagles in the future," said Coach Mrs. Cortes.

The following Tuesday, they came out on top with a 3-0 triumph over Baie-Sainte-Anne, additionally on the home field. Grade 11 striker Dakota Curtis led the way with 2 goals followed by grade 12 mid-field Reese Urquhart with 1 goal. The girls showed great improvement from the first game and maintained possession of the ball 75% of the time.
In their most recent game, the Blackville Eagles challenged CNBA on their home turf in Boiestown. It was a close call but they came out with their second tie of 0-0.
Although the game has changed since last fall as a result of Covid-19, the girls are just happy they are able to compete. With a smaller league and no Regionals or Provincials, the game has adapted to be pandemic friendly. Close contact has been minimized with all players exempt from touching the ball.
"I think they did a good job, trying to make the game as normal as possible, but it is still disappointing that in my last year of high school there is no competitive play. Especially since I really had my sights set on provincial champs this year," said soccer co-captain and grade 12 student Reese Urquhart.
"The season is going well, we are competing even though it is a different type of season with Covid restrictions, but I feel like we are going to finish the season strong," noted Matthew Sturgeon, High School Girls Soccer coach.
The girls next see the field Thursday, October 15 in NSER for their fourth game of the season.

In the first game of the year the boys were looking good as they defeated NSER to a score of 7-0. Only having one practice, the boys were not to sure how they would manage, but that uncertainity quickly changed as the whistle blew. The boys were dominant. Scoring for the Eagles were: Preston Gillespie with 3, Kyle Malliet with 2, and singles from Keaton Walls and River Stewart.
The second game of the year was much similar to the first. The boys again dominated, but this time it was against ERBSA. The following game was held only after two practices. Again, the boys did not know how they would hold up even though last year they beat them all year. The boys came on top with a score of 5-0. Scoring for the Eagles were Preston Gillespie with 3, singles from Hudson Underhill and Caiden Duffy.
The third game is when the Eagles fell short to Stanley. The boys first away game was a loss. They battled hard, but did not succeed as Stanley won 5-2. Scoring for the Eagles was Preston Gillespie and Caleb Gillespie with a penalty kick. It was a hard loss, but the boys plan to get them next time at home.
Will Eardley, a new student who was moved from Manitoba to New Brunswick has stepped in between the pipes this year as Jacob Mercer graduated and hung up the cleats last year. The boys were worried about not having a goalie this year for soccer when Will stepped up and said he would do the job. To start the season he had back to back shutouts, and made some great saves.

This award acknowledges the significant contribution that individuals make to the students and staff of Anglophone North School District.
Logan was recognized for his very impressive actions in response to an unknown visitor at the doors of Blackville School.
While leading a group of his classmates to the bus, an individual who Mr. Logan had not recognized, buzzed in at the main doors. He immediately took action and stopped his friends from allowing the visitor to enter, until the office had approved.
"His quick response was absolutely on point and exactly what we would want all of our students and staff to do. Logan put the safety and security of his school first, and I think he should be recognized for that," said Caissie.
"Blackville School is very proud of Logan's attentiveness to school policy and we are glad to have students like Logan at our school," added Principal Rodney Buggie.
