Bridger Roberdeau, left, of Spearfish, and Corrin Burke, of Rapid City Stevens, battle for the ball last season at Sioux Park.

The Rapid City Stevens and Spearfish boys' soccer teams ended their regular seasons with a scoreless tie at Sioux Park Stadium Saturday.

Spartan goalie Gene Glover recorded seven saves while Raider goalie Carter Waggoner stopped five.

Stevens had a chance in the 25th minute, when Tage Tyler fielded a Ross Moriatry corner kick, but the shot was quickly smothered by Glover. 

In the 54th minute Spearfish had a pair of chances, Johan Peterson had a breakaway opportunity but couldn't shake off Stevens defender Ian Helgeson. The two jockeyed for position in front of the net, and a contested Peterson shot went to the right of the goal.

A few minutes later Raiders and Spartans battled for control of a loose ball in front of the Stevens goal, but the Raiders were able to successfully clear the ball away.

"We played better in the second half," Stevens coach Dave Sharp said. "Chase (Culbertson) did a fantastic job back there, Corrin (Burke) stepped it up, Ian did a solid job and our keeper Carter, he kept our butts in it. Defensively we did well and played with a lot of fight."

Stevens finished the regular season 6-3-2 and is currently ranked fifth in the Class AA standings. It is off until the state playoffs, which begins Oct. 2. Spearfish moves to 9-2-2 and is currently sixth in the standings, and will face St. Thomas More Thursday in the final match of the regular season.
