Clarkston High School
Lapeer High School
It ended honors even with all the goals scored in the first half
The hosts scored with their first corner 2 minutes into the game . The ball popped out to the top of the box and lapeer put it into the top corner
The hosts doubled the lead from another set piece . The corner was volleyed in from the 6yd box unmarked .
The wolves responded quickly when a quick switch of play set mikaela rodriguez in down the right . Her pace took her away from the defenders and she finished well low across the keeper into the far corner .
The lightning restored their 2 goal advantage when a free kick was volleyed home, again unmarked from the 6yd box has the lapeer #10 who was their star player .
Jess Bennett made it 3-2 with a good finish from the right side of the box and rielee fetty made it 3-3 with a run from the halfway line , when lapeer tried to play offside and she went clean through to beat the keeper with ease
Rodriguez hit the post and the wolves had a couple more great chances during a crazy 1st half . Lapeer tried to play a high line and the wolves could’ve easily scored 5/6 goals In the half
The 2nd half played out to a draw with the wolves having quite a few decent chances without really testing the keeper often enough .
If the wolves are going to progress in districts they have to tighten up from set pieces .
The wolves are back at it Wednesday with a OAA league game @ Berkeley at 7pm
