Elizabeth Bennet, Writer

The boys varsity soccer team won against Clio at Fenton this past Wednesday with a final score of 1-0. In the first half of the game, the one and only goal of the night was shot by junior Liam Adams.

“Jake Martin had a deflected off a defender and it came to me,” Adams said. “I then dribbled through three to four players to find space for the shot.”

Even with the countless number of penalty calls against the Tigers, they still managed to win the game.

“With the experience that we have as a team, we try not to let the refs bother us, good or bad,” senior Isaac Moore said. “We always try and keep our composure and play as a team.”

In the second half, it was a back and forth battle between teams. With no goals made and the work of the Tigers defense and offense, Clio was kept from running for the ball.

The Tigers showed teamwork throughout the second half.

“This team compared to last year is a lot more vocal,” Coach Matt Sullivan said. “ they have great senior leadership”

The boys next game starts at 6 p.m. on Oct. 5 at Holly High School.
