BOUNTIFUL — The Bountiful Braves soccer team has been in a lot of close games on their way to a 4-0-1 start.

In three of their initial five games this season, the final score has seen the Braves win by two goals or less (including a 2-2 tie to Box Elder in the team’s third game).

Against Olympus Tuesday, the Braves again were locked up in a close battle, only to come out winners in a 3-1 fight against Region 6 foe Olympus.

The Braves were helped initially by their defense in the first half as they took control of the tempo of the game from nearly the beginning.

The Braves were able to score a goal before the half ended, however, as they ended the first half with a 1-0 lead.

In the second half, Olympus was able to get on the scoreboard when James Webb scooted a ball past the Braves for the Titans only goal of the game.

After that, the Braves settled in and responded with a pair of goals themselves as they took control of the rest of the game.

Offensively the Braves were led by Kevin McOmie, Richard Haddock and Taylor Egbert, who each scored a goal in the win.

For Egbert and Haddock, they scored their sixth and fourth goal of the year respectively and are 1-2 on the team in goals scored so far.

McOmie’s goal was his first of the season for the Braves.

After their game against Stansbury Friday, the Braves will not have another game until Tuesday, April 12 when they host Highland to continue Region 6 play.
