Thursday, September 20, the Hot Springs Bison had a rematch with Sturgis. Sturgis decided to field their older players, many of whom were varsity against Hot Springs' young squad that was starting seventh graders. The Bison players battled hard, but were physically outmatched. Several of Hot Springs' players picked up injuries as a result leaving their bench being depleted. A highlight of the game was the second half performance of seveth grade keeper, Maggie Preuss, who stopped a penalty shot along with several critical saves late in the game. Head coach Wendell Gehman had the following to say on the game, "I was disappointed at Sturgis for their decisions regarding their personnel choice. It would have been nice to have a more evenly matched contest."
Player of the game: Bradley Hagen: Brad stepped up to fill unfamiliar positions as needed throughout the game. His willingness to help out for his injured teammates is greatly appreciated. Solid defensive effort.
