Clarkston High School
The Varsity boys played Lake Orion October 5th in Lake Orion. The match opened with Lake Orion being able to deflect a cross into the box into the far corner in the first couple minutes of the game. The rain started to fall much heavier and was on and off for most of the match. The boys continued to work hard and possessed the ball and created several good scoring opportunities, but couldnât get an equalizing goal in the first half. The half ended with Lake Orion leading 1-0.
The second half was very similar to the first. Several chances where created, with the best chance coming when Ethan Wise played Matt Heilman in behind the Dragon defense, Matt was able to get off a very strong shot that hit the post and rebounded out.
Unfortunately, all of the pressure was not able to create any goals. The defense was able to hold strong and limit the Lake Orion to just the one goal, but the game ended with Lake Orion winning 1-0.
The boys are now in the final stretch of the regular season with three home games remaining. Hopefully, the previous success experienced at home will carry over and lead into a long playoff run.
