The Bre­ton Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre Bears boys soc­cer team con­tin­ued its un­de­feated streak in high school soc­cer Di­vi­sion 1 play in Syd­ney on Fri­day, blank­ing the Eskasoni War­riors 4–0.

In their sec­ond game of the Cape Bre­ton High School Soc­cer League sea­son, BEC con­trolled the game from the start. BEC blanked Syd­ney Academy boys 1-0 in their sea­son-opener in Syd­ney on Wed­nes­day.

Af­ter the first half of play, the Bears had a 2–0 lead, with Devon Ma­cLean and Aaron Ma­clean both find­ing the back of the net.

In the sec­ond half, BEC con­tin­ued to keep the ball in the War­rior’s end and kept the pres­sure on.

Devon Ma­cLean, 16, a striker who had two goals in the game, said BEC could come out on top by the end of the sea­son.

“I feel like we have a pretty good chance of com­ing in first,” said Ma­cLean, who gave credit to his team­mates for the win. “We have a re­ally good de­fen­sive line and also a great for­ward line; we’re pretty ef­fi­cient up there, too.”

Through­out the en­tire game, the War­riors had trou­ble get­ting the ball past the Bear’s full­backs.

The Bears kept the pres­sure on Eskasoni in the sec­ond half of play and added two more goals to take a com­mand­ing lead, with Bret Hil­lier and Car­son Guyaux end­ing the War­rior’s hopes of a come­back early in the sec­ond half.

Cape Bre­ton High School Soc­cer League Di­vi­sion 1 ac­tion con­tin­ues Mon­day with two games, with Riverview tak­ing on BEC and Me­mo­rial fac­ing off against Syd­ney Academy.
