Girls varsity soccer wins against Swartz Creek

Brendan Triola, Writer

As the clouds gloomed over Ivan Williams Field, the varsity soccer team took their home turf for the first time this season shutting out the Swartz Creek with a score of 2-0.

After finding themselves in the state finals last season, the team lost five seniors from their record breaking team. Among those lost are Brennan Sullivan and Carly Granger, both playing college athletics this season.

“Obviously we had a huge amount of success last season and the girls that graduated are very talented,” senior Emma Bellini said, “But we definitely have some very tough and skilled players that can help fill that void very well.”

Despite the cold conditions the Lady Tigers were able to pull out to a 1-0 lead before the first half ended.

“As a senior this is my second year playing varsity,” Bellini said. “I think almost every time we have played against Swartz Creek in my high school career it has been gloomy and rainy outside. It adds a very interesting dynamic to the game.”

Senior Chloe Foor scored two goals and the Tigers never looked back, coasting to a 2-0 victory. Their next game is Wed, March 30 at home vs Linden.
