WASHINGTON TERRACE — At the start of sports season, teams will undoubtedly have a lot of unanswered questions.
For Bonneville Lakers girls soccer, some of those questions began to be answered Thursday.
While the Lakers played to a 2-2 tie with the Logan Grizzlies, Bonneville coach Rob McDaniel saw plenty to be pleased about from his team.
“We played really well,” he said. “For a second game, we did a great job.”
For the first 50 minutes of the match, it was shaping up as a day of missed opportunities for the Lakers.
Logan opened the scoring in the 10th minute as junior Kennedy Michel got a ball past Bonneville goalkeeper Bree Milne to give the Grizzlies an early 1-0 lead. It was the Grizzlies’ first shot on goal, while Bonneville already had five shots on goal.
Despite the early deficit, McDaniel wasn’t worried about his team.
“It wasn’t too bad,” he said. “I was still pleased with how they played. We played our game the entire 80 minutes.”
Then in the 51st minute, the Lakers caught the break they needed. Junior Isabel Togisala took a pass from the left wing while shielding the Logan defender from the ball. She moved in and put a shot past the Logan goalkeeper to tie it at 1-1.
Moments later, Bonneville junior Karly Conolly got a shot of her own past the Logan goalkeeper to give the Lakers a 2-1 lead.

The Lakers nearly had a third goal later in the half as junior Hayden Rupe took a pass from the right wing in front of the goal, but was unable to get it by the Logan defender.
It seemed the Lakers would hold on for the win, but the Grizzlies got the equalizer in the 65th minute as Logan’s Marissa Dickson scored on a breakaway, beating Milne to the ball.
“She did good,” McDaniel said of his keeper. “She got beat on the one goal.”
For the match, Bonneville outshot Logan 17-8, which had McDaniel all smiles.
“We got more shots in two games this season than we did all of last season,” he said. “And it didn’t come from just one person.”
For Logan, it wasn’t the Grizzlies’ best effort.
“It wasn’t our best game,” Logan coach Katie Taylor said. “We were a little slow.”
