For the second straight year, the Bulldogs are state champs.

Whitefish took down Laurel 4-0 in the state title match, aided by goals from four different players.

“They’ve worked super hard. They haven’t trailed in a game for two years,” Bulldogs head coach John Lacey said. “Great senior leadership, just good guys, and we love playing and we love scoring. I’m really proud of them.”

The Dogs got the scoring started with an Ian Lacey goal from straight out in the third minute to put Whitefish up 1-0 early in the first half.

The scoring picked up in the second half.

Sam Menicke connected off a cross from Casey Schneider in the 55th minute.

Schneider broke loose for a goal of his own in the 75th minute, beating the Locomotives’ goalkeeper one-on-one to open the lead up to 3-0.

Joshua Gunderson added the final goal in the 78th minute off a penalty kick.

This is the Dogs’ second straight championship and undefeated season, and the program’s seventh state championship overall.
