The General Amherst Bulldogs won their second game of the season last Wednesday afternoon by shutting out Brennan 2-0. They would add their third win of the year earlier this week as well.

Goals by Dillon Hayes and Anthony Bendo propelled Amherst (3-5) to the win at the Libro Centre. Assistant coaches Gavin Blunt and Alex Popel said the Bulldogs moved the ball well and played together solidly as a team, despite missing sweeper Sean Santarossa. Santarossa had missed last Wednesday’s game after having previously received a red card.

“We played well,” said Blunt. “It was one of our better games of the year.”

Jack Langlois picked up the shutout in goal for General Amherst.

Head coach David Melo noted the Bulldogs have a young roster with a lot of Grade 10 players. He said “it took us a while to get going” and that “rookie mistakes” have been made but the compete level is there every game.

“What they lack in experience, they make up for in effort,” said Melo.

Santarossa’s red card came last Monday in the Bulldogs’ 4-1 loss at Massey.

The Bulldogs went to Windsor Monday afternoon where they downed Ste. Cecile 5-1 for their third win. Bendo scored against Ste. Cecile as did Clayton Andrews, Jessie Heywood, Justin Veldhuis and Jarrod Benninger.
