SULLIVAN — The Sumner boys’ soccer team’s 2018 season came to an end Saturday with a 4-1 road loss to No. 1 Fort Kent in the Class C North semifinals.
After trailing 1-0 at halftime, fourth-ranked Sumner scored two minutes into the second half when Dylan Bernier assisted Caelan Billings to tie the game. Yet Fort Kent (13-1-2) then scored three goals to seal the win and advance to the regional title game.
Despite the loss, the season was still a resounding success for Sumner, which put together eight- and six-game winning streaks and won the Downeast Athletic Conference title. The Tigers (14-2) finished the year with 117 goals scored and 25 conceded.
Sumner’s run is far from over, either, as the team will have a strong attacking presence again next year with Warren and Billings returning. Eduardo Figueroa, Dylan Bernier, Silas Goldfarb and Alex Rumill will be among other key players back for the Tigers.
