The defending 3A state champions are off to 2-1-0 start.

The Panthers started the season beating rivals Sumner Spartans 3-1.

Bonney Lake’s defense held the Spartans from scoring in the first period.

The first score of the game came in the 39th minute on a shot from Brody Fitzsimmons off a sideline throw in from Tyler John.

To tie the game, Sumner’s Jordan Butler scored off a free kick from the 50 yard line.

Three minutes later, Fitzsimmons answered with a score to take the lead, 2-1. John assisted the score.

Jonah Phillips scored the final point of the game off an assist from Fitzsimmons at the 53 minute mark.

The Panthers won its second game of the season against last year’s 4A finalist, the Union Titans.

The first score of the game came from an unassisted goal by John in the 39th minute of play.

The second score of the game was in the 67th minute by Jacob Bohl.

He scored off a rebound from a missed shot by Phillips.

The third game of the season wasn’t as easy as the first two were for the Panthers.

Bonney Lake played Camas Saturday and lost 3-0.

The Papermakers scored early in the first half and had the 3-0 lead before the half.

The second half was scoreless for both teams.

With the loss, Bonney Lake’s 18 game winning streak came to an end.

The Panthers next game is today at 7 p.m. against Redmond High School.
