Girls Varsity Soccer
In a battle at Sparta, the Spartans scored first halfway through the first half on a rebound shot into the net. The game was high pressure and high intensity the entire match with Sparta owning the shots on goal category by 19-13. Destiny Smigiel played superb in goal in just her second Varsity start surrounded by the defenders who helped keep Sparta away from the goal.
Trailing by one at half, the Lady Broncos were tasked with coming out in the 2nd half and getting the next goal, and that's exactly what they did. A flurry of chances passed by until with just over 13 minutes remaining Freshie Carli Harris drove the ball into the net for the game tying goal. Erin Mason had the assist. The game ended with the same score as both teams had opportunities with Sparta having a goal called back and the Lady Broncos hitting the post.
These same teams will meet next Wednesday in the opening round of the MHSAA tournament at Coopersville for a 5:30 PM kickoff.
