Boys Junior Varsity Soccer, Boys Varsity Soccer · Comet Soccer Drops Tough Match at Haslett

The Grand Ledge boys’ varsity soccer team traveled to Haslett for their final match before the CAAC Blue schedule takes full flight.  Last year, the 2 teams battled to a 0-0 draw.

Though the Comets were able to establish early possession, the Vikings were able to pounce on a turnover and hit a long ball that Andy Vahng was able to smash past freshman goalkeeper Matthew LeBlanc.
The Comets continued to keep possession through the midfield and worked the ball from side-to-side with seniors Nick Battley and Hudson Morgan anchoring the attack.  However, late in first half, Haslett was again able to turn a Comet mistake into a goal.  After a long ball, the Vikings eventually hit a cross from the right side that Griffin Doran was able to tap in at the far post.
The Comets had a few free kick opportunities that posed all kinds of problems for the Viking’s defense.  Senior center back Aric Phinney launched himself at a ball, but he just missed the cross.  Senior Jim Werner saw his tap-in effort thwarted by the Haslett goalkeeper after a cross from Hudson Morgan following a corner kick.
Haslett added a 3rd goal by Carson Shadaker midway through the 2nd half.
The Comets were able to pull one back late when Sophomore Cameron DeLong found a running Jim Werner.  Jim’s off-foot shot floated high and past the Haslett goalkeeper.
The final score was Haslett 3-1 over Grand Ledge.
