New Bern ends Havelock's three-game winning streak

The New Bern girls soccer team snapped Havelock’s three-game winning streak with a 2-0 victory Thursday at New Bern High.

The victory comes a week after New Bern went to Havelock and pulled out a 2-1 win for its first of the year.

Mikayla Allen and River Bondurant scored the goals for the Bears on a blustery, frigid evening.

“It was good to get that goal early,” New Bern coach Tim Guter said. “We were playing against the wind in that first half, but I thought we managed the weather and Havelock’s key players very well. We’ve been preaching a lot of discipline lately and I think it was a good result tonight with a lot of young girls on our team and not a deep roster.”

Havelock’s goal-scoring gang of Natalie Johnson, Ali Wickman and Dominique Martinez couldn’t break through New Bern’s defense.

“New Bern has a lot of balance on offense with their attack, and I thought our girls reverted to the offense they played the first time against New Bern, which wasn’t very good,” Havelock coach Jeff Harris said. “We were a little out of sync tonight and we had some decent shots. We just didn’t put any pressure on them with our offense.”

New Bern improved to 2-2 on the season, while Havelock falls to 3-2.
