BUTTE — It's been a rocky season for the Missoula Big Sky boys soccer team, but on Tuesday the team enjoyed a gem of an afternoon at Jeremy Bullock Memorial Soccer Fields.
The Eagles posted their second win of the season at the expense of the winless Butte Bulldogs, 3-0. Big Sky benefited from an own goal early in the second half and then added goals by Alfredo Garcia and multi-sport standout Liam Johnson.
The own goal set the tone in the second half. Several Bulldogs were aiming to help keeper Logan Roepe on a corner kick. One of those defenders knocked the ball into his own goal on a header.
