The senior had 11 saves as the D’backs and Hawks played to a 1-all draw until the 76th minute when Liberty Ranch scored for the 2-1 win over Union Mine (0-2-1, 1-3-1).
Most of Boring’s saves were in various ways: challenges, corralling corner kicks and dive-saves near the net.
“Nick is an awesome goal keeper,” Savage said. “He never gives up. He has a positive attitude.”
In the first half, Union Mine had plenty of open shots — one that flew past the Liberty Ranch goalie when D’back forward Raine Scott scored on a breakaway in the 10th minute to tie the game at 1-all.
“We created a lot of chances,” Savage said. “We controlled the midfield.”
Scott joined forward Bryce Yaple, defender Jeremy Dupras and midfielder Levi Sattler-Petrocchi in taking shots at the Hawks’ net in the game.
