King’s Fork High School’s boys’ soccer team defeated Deep Creek High School in a shutout on Tuesday.

The Bulldogs grabbed a 2-0 win over the Hornets at home. It was King’s Fork first game following spring break, and coach Michel Bilé was happy to see a shutout.

“I think we did well,” Bilé said. “I even thought we could have done a bit better, but overall I was proud of the game they played. It was good to see them in playing mode coming from the break.”

The Bulldogs’ defense was outstanding. The team was aggressive from the start of the game to the finish. On offense, the Bulldogs remained patient and attacked when they needed to. Bilé said his players missed a couple of opportunities, but he sees those mistakes as fixable.

Senior and team captain Nadim Barakat played a solid game for the Bulldogs in the back end in their win.

King’s Fork and Deep Creek are conference opponents and will see each other again. The Bulldogs don’t want to be complacent next time around. They want to keep elevating their games and learn from their mistakes.

The Bulldogs defeated Northampton High School on Thursday at home, their second win in a row.

Another superb defensive performance allowed only one goal.

Three different Bulldogs were responsible for all of King’s Fork goals in their 4-1 win.

King’s Fork will play Churchland High School at home at 7:30 p.m. May 3.
