SOCCER

VARSITY SOCCER (District Champions)

2020-2021 Soccer District Champs

Regional Update from Coach Antonio Robles:
I am sad to see a great season come to an end. The boys played a great game last night, unfortunately luck wasn't on our side, a few mistakes and various missed shots, gave Marcellus Howardsville the opportunity to pass to the next round of regionals. Even though we did not make it to regional finals, we had some great accomplishments, from having a winning season to winning the first district title in Bangor history.

I want to thank the seniors for this season, they did an amazing job showing great leadership and experience through their performance. I also want to thank the parents for letting me coach their student-athletes. It is always a great opportunity to meet many talented young men every season. Thank you to the community, fans, and other athletics programs that supported us! I would also like to thank our AD, Jens Mortensen, and the Bangor staff for always helping the Bangor soccer program improve and succeed every season. 

Lastly, I would like to thank and give a shout-out to the Bangor Vikings Club for the generous donation of district T-Shirts for varsity soccer!

District Update from Coach Antonio Robles
With the emotions set high, and our dreams hoping to happen, the Bangor Vikings have finally won their FIRST district title! When the whistle blew, both teams began with their eyes on the target, the goal posts. Both teams had various chances to score and put one ahead. Fortunately a penalty scored by Captain Rolando Muñoz put the Vikings ahead.

As the minutes went on, there was  constant pressure from each team with the urge to put another tally on the scoreboard. The game was very suspenseful during the first-half. Half-time gave the Vikings and Cardinals time to regroup and push through. At the start of the second-half, there were multiple instances again, where both sides could score. A late cross by Jonathan Nieva gave Nolan Crandall a magnificent chance that resulted in our second goal. After the second goal, the momentum favored the Vikings. The Vikings  kept pushing the opponent to look for another goal. Each minute going down began to slow down, thus intensifying the game even more, while making the Vikings more and more confident towards the title.

Once the final whistle blew, the Vikings knew they were District champions, giving Bangor the chance to look for a regional title as well. We would like to thank everyone who came out and supported the Bangor Varsity Soccer team and program throughout the years and most importantly, the players for making this happen! Congratulations Vikings and keep working hard towards that Regional title!

The Bangor Viking JV football team is out to a 2-0 start on the season. JV opened the season 9-19 vs the Bloomingdale Cardinals.  The Vikings jumped out to an early lead on a TD run by Yrral Campbell.  The Vikings never looked back.  The Vikings spread the scoring around with five different players scoring on the day.  Austin Birner, Jr Martinez, Henry Beleen, Nic Martinez and Campbell all crossing the goal line.  The Viking defense held strong keeping the Cardinals out of the end zone all day.  Finishing the game with a final score off 46-0.

The JV Vikings played their second game of the season vs the Eau Claire Beavers on 9-26.  The first half started off rough for the Vikings with four fumbles and a 0-16 deficit at the half.  Halftime adjustments were made on both sides of the ball and the script was flipped.  After a second half opening kickoff return for a touchdown by Yrral Campbell, the Vikings were off and running.  Jr Martinez and Campbell added more scores for the Vikings in the second half.  The Viking defense shut out the EC offense in the second half.  Led by Austin Birner's pass defense and Ethan Abbott shutting down the Beaver run game.  The Vikings came out the victors with a final score of 26-16.

VOLLEYBALL

VARSITY VOLLEYBALL

From Coach Doug Jones
Bangor High School hosted its annual Varsity Volleyball Invitational Tournament last Saturday. The teams participating in the event this year were limited to four by Michigan High School Athletic Association rules.

The Lady Vikings were undefeated in Pool Play by taking two sets each from  Bloomingdale, Climax-Scotts, and Delton Kellogg. Bangor completed the 8-0 sweep by beating Delton-Kellogg again in the Championship Match 2-0.

Olivia Kuiper led the Viking attack with 30 kills on the day followed closely by Amara Littlefield’s 28 kills. Kuiper also had 10 service aces and 26 digs.

Abby Moench had 73 assists and 18 digs, while Libero Kaitlyn Kite had 26 digs. Freshman Middle Blocker Taliyah Modert had 6 of the team’s 11 solo blocks.

Overall, it was a well-balanced performance in both offense and defense aided by outstanding serving. Hats off to Olivia, Alyssa, Abby, Siney, Amara, Cloe, Kaitlyn, Lexy, Taliyah, and Aaleeya for winning individual medals and a first place trophy.

JUNIOR VARSITY VOLLEYBALL

From Coach Lucas Smith
Last night we traveled to Centreville coming off our big win Tuesday.  We came out on fire in the first set taking it 25-16.  Unfortunately that momentum did not carry over into the second or third sets as Centreville came back to defeat us.  Our last match is Wednesday at New Buffalo!
