The Knights improve to 3-5 overall and 2-3 in the CBC. The Chieftains drop to 4-3-1, 2-2-1.

“We’ve had four really physical games in a row now,” said BHS boys head coach Steve Henry. “We may have four or five players out for (our next game). I am proud of how hard we played and that we played with class. It’s hard to not retaliate in those situations when things get chippy. We kept our heads and battled until the end of the game.”

Neither team was able to find the back of the goal in the first half, which resulted in a scoreless tie at the break.
