Buckley players celebrate a perfect Northwest Conference soccer season after beating Leland 3-1 Saturday.

BUCKLEY — Buckey capped off an undefeated Northwest Conference slate with a 3-1 boys soccer victory over Leland Saturday.

The Bears, who had already clinched their first NWC title in since 1999, received goals from Jake Romzek and Alfonso Jimenez to finish off a 10-0 Northwest season. Buckley’s pressure on a free kick resulted in a Comets own goal.

Tyler Milarch and Romzek picked up assists and Josh Barley made eight saves in goal, only allowing a penalty-kick score.

Bears head coach John Vermilya singled out midfielder Garrett Ensor as the game’s MVP.

Buckley (14-4-1) is off until Oct. 18, hosting the winner of North Bay and Charlevoix in a 7 p.m. district semifinal match.
