Augustin Espinoza holds the Rivalry Cup high after a 4-2 home win over the Prescott Badgers, as the Bears’ soccer team parades it around the Bradshaw Mountain gym during a boys’ basketball game with Prescott Friday night. Bradshaw also beat the Badgers 2-0 on Dec. 20 in Prescott.
In its sixth year of existence, the cup will reside for the next year at Bradshaw Mountain, after two years at Prescott.

With a 6-inch icicle hanging from their water jug's spout on a frigid Friday in Prescott Valley, the Bradshaw Mountain soccer Bears beat the Badgers 4-2 to regain possession of the Prescott Cup after a two-year hiatus.
Neither team could find the back of the net in the first half, but Bradshaw's boys located it aplenty in the second 40-minutes of play.
Prescott started the scoring five minutes into the second period. But Bradshaw's sophomore midfielders, Randy Ayala and Kenneth Castro, each scored twice in what their head coach Phil Reid called a high intensity game.
Ayala struck first to equalize 1-1. Castro next capitalized on Omar Hernandez's free kick to take the 2-1 lead.
Bradshaw, 7-4 overall and 5-4 on the AIA Div. II power point chart at No. 33, played host to Flagstaff yesterday, after the Tribune's press time.
