Last Tuesday we defeated Swartz Creek in the opening round of the Districts 4-0. Paige Webber had (2) goals and an assist. Ashton Cassel and Chelsea Clark each had a goal and assist. Amy Puidokas and Maddie Fox combined for the shutout in goal.
Thursday we traveled to Oxford to play Lapeer in the 2nd round of District play and beat the Lightening 4-0. Our possession was very good in this match keeping the ball about 80% of the game. We mixed it around with (4) different goal scorers (Morgan Jewell, Lara Wheeler, Lexi Trudeau and Chelsea Clark). Morgen Metzger, Paige Webber and Lexi Trudeau chipped in assists. In addition to the 4 goals we hit the post twice and the crossbar once. Lapeer’s goalkeeper also made some outstanding saves to keep her team close. Amy Puidokas and Maddie Fox again combined for the shutout.
Friday we traveled back to Oxford for the District Championship against Davison. We scored (2) 1st half goals which were huge because Davison deployed a defensive posture and it was tough getting through their wall of defenders. Lexi Trudeau scored off a corner kick from Chelsea Clark, and Chelsea converted a Penalty Kick about 5 minutes later on a handball in the box for the 2-0 win. We continued to win the game of possession in the 2nd half and Davison rarely threatened. Amy Puidokas was credited with the shutout in goal, her 15th of the season. Our overall record improves to (17-2-6). We take on Novi on Tuesday at 5:00 PM at Bloomfield Hill High School in the Regional Semi-Finals. Brighton plays Rochester Adams at 7:00 in the other Semi.
