Northville High School
Grand Blanc High School
Last night we opened KLAA play with a 1-1 tie against Northville. Northville scored off a free kick in the 1st half when Bennett Stokes dove and made the initial save but the rebound was put home. Muaz Asperger hit the crossbar on a header crossed by Brandon Dellaposta in the 1st half and we generated some other nice scoring chances only to be turned away by the Northville keeper or shots going just wide.
The 2nd half was much like the 1st with transition and counterattacks from both teams, but the defenses and goalkeeping denied any goals until with a little over 2-minutes left in the match, Muaz crossed a ball to the far post which Austin Hobbs volleyed in for the equalizer. Bennett Stokes made (6) saves on the night and really kept us in the match in the 1st half.
We travel to Plymouth Canton on Wednesday to take on the State runner-up Chiefs. Our record moves to (1-1-2) overall.
