TOPSHAM — Griffin Stockford and Justin Pierce each scored a goal and the Mt. Ararat High School boys soccer team chalked up a huge Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference win Friday, 2-1 over visiting Bangor.

The victory propelled the 4-2-1 Eagles to the second place in the Eastern Maine Class A Heal Point Standings. Bangor (6-1), which had allowed only three goals in six previous contests, fell to third with Lewiston (6-1) holds down the top spot.

“It was a huge win for us,” said Mt. Ararat coach Rick Renaud. “That really puts us on the right track. I would say we dominated the first 25 minutes of the first half and they dominated the last 15. They carried play for the first 15 minutes of the second half and then we dominated. We played very well.”

Mt. Ararat (scheduled to visit Oxford Hills on Tuesday) scored with 15:56 remaining in the first period when Stockford headed in a Chris Pepin corner kick.

Three minutes later, Sam Huston of Bangor converted a free kick for a 1-1 game.

A Stockford shot clanged off both posts in the second period, with Pierce following up with 34:24 left for the Eagles’ second goal.

“We also hit the post and they hit the post twice,” said Renaud. “It was a great game and I thought my defenders, Pepin, Mike Crawford and Eric Knight played really well, as did Stockford.”

Bangor led in shots 8-6, while Mt. Ararat held a 6-5 corner kick advantage.

Eagles goaltender Jon Roux made five saves and Stanley Clark three for the Rams.
