“This was the first tournament

LakeVille soccer has attended in recent history,” said LakeVille coach Krista Daniels. “The morning started out at 46 degrees but that didn't stop Falcon fans from coming out to support their team.”

“In addition to their support, the team wouldn't be the same without the knowledge of assistant coach Cody Haggadone and the strategic assistance of Conrad Morey and Dan Tinnen, both LakeVille soccer alumni. Credit also goes to the team's stats girls, Catrina Crane and Angelica Hill; without their data, players wouldn't be able to set and reach individual goals for the good of the team.”

LakeVille was at Byron yesterday and will host Clio tomorrow. — A.V.


The Lapeer boys’ soccer team tied Midland on Monday night, 0-0. Senior captain Harrison Hirth was perfect in the net for the Lightning, saving the only two shots he saw on goal.

Seniors Mike Meija and Brian Morris controlled the ball for the Lightning, keeping it in Midland territory for a majority of the game.

"We didn't come for a tie, but a Lapeer controlled game is still good to walk away with," said coach Deb Johnson. "We were firing, just missing that final finish.”
