The end of a 13-game win streak last Friday doesn’t appear to be anything too devastating for the Bedford High boys’ soccer team. The Bulldogs countered their first setback since August with a 2-1 win over Timberlane on Tuesday in Plaistow. Charley Speaker scored both Bedford goals in the first half to help the Bulldogs (14-2) get back in the win column. Speaker scored in the third minute of the game before striking again 10 minutes before halftime. Al Barney scored for the Owls (8-6-1), who otherwise had trouble with Bedford goalie Aidan Wisherd the rest of the day.
Lebanon 1, Souhegan 0: In Amherst, the Raiders (10-4-1) survived the Sabers (7-6) by way of Owen Johnstone’s goal on Nate Chickering’s assist in the 16th minute. Chris Nulty made two saves for Lebanon to complete the shutout. Matt Greany stopped six shots for Souhegan.
Hopkinton 9, Conant 1: In Hopkinton, the Hawks scored nine times in a game for the second time in their last three contests.
