Southfield Christian High School
Lutheran High School – Westland
In a late evening matchup under the lights, the Eagles from Southfield traveled to Westland looking to split games for the 2017 season.
Battling several injuries, the Eagles line up would have a tough challenge dealing with the deep bench of the Warriors. With very few substitutions, the Eagles managed to hold Lutheran Westland to only 1 goal in the first half.
Seeing an opening midway through the second half, junior midfield Jack Ross fired a long shot that managed the space between Westland’s goalkeeper and the crossbar. The game now tied at 1, the Warriors bounced back quickly to score a goal on a breakaway.
Trying to gain momentum back, the Eagles pushed into the Warriors defense multiple times in the latter stages, but were unable to secure a score. The contest ended Eagles 1, Warriors 2.
Southfield will travel for another conference matchup against Huron Valley Lutheran on 10/3.
