Morris soccer team downed by Bradley-Bourbonnais

MORRIS — The Morris boys soccer team hoped to get a look at some good competition Tuesday in their match against Bradley-Bourbannais, and the Redskins were not disappointed. They dropped a 7-1 decision to the perennial power in non-conference action.

Enrique Gonzalez scored the only goal for Morris (5-6) off of a rebound with 14:40 left in the game.

"Wow, what a team," Morris coach David Valdivia said about the Boilermakers. "I was amazed by Bradley-Bourbannais' twin brothers, who were forwards. They played with such ease. They cut through our center backs like butter. Bradley played composed and were not rushed.

"I was impressed with them, but I was more impressed by my boys, who never gave up. We used this game as a way to get us to that next level. Will see on Thursday [against Sycamore] if it pays off."
