afternoon here at Baker Stadium.
Puget Sound took 10 shots in the first half, but the Bruin defense managed to fend off every Logger attempt until the 29th minute. A shot by Colin McIntosh was stopped but not controlled in front of the goal by the Bruins’ Elliott Davis, and in the ensuing scrum, Andrew White was able to get his foot on the ball and tap it just over the line for a 1-0 Logger lead at the 28:17 mark.
