ROCHESTER HILLS >> Eisenhower advanced to Friday’s Division 1 district championship after its 3-0 win over Rochester on Thursday.

“I think it was a good clean game, both sides. I thought Rochester played very well, and we played very well. So it was a good game for both teams,” Eagles coach Mehrdad Nekoogar said.

The game started off fairly even as the teams tried to assess one another.

“We have never played each other since last year, so I think both teams were trying to watch and see what we have,” Nekoogar said. “So the first 10 minutes we were trying to figure out what to do, then after that we played much better and it paid off for us.”

The Eagles slowly began asserting themselves towards the middle of the first half, but high pressure from the Rochester defense, particularly Sam Miller and Jessica Hegger, made it tough for the Eagles to find the range and get quality shots on net.

Eisenhower finally broke through with 15:17 to play in the first half when Gabriala Jodzis slotted a ball for Meike Ingles who got a step on her defender and fired a shot back across the net that just eluded keeper Kaitlyn Godwin, giving Eisenhower a 1-0 lead.

About eight minutes later, Lauren DeBeau chipped the charging Rochester keeper to make it 2-0 Eagles.

Eisenhower never looked back as the young, banged up Falcons just could not get anything going offensively.

“We started off well. I think the pressure they put on us was a little too much for us to deal with in this type of a game and this young of a team,’ Falcons coach Dustin Coleman said.

A goal from Jillian Winarski early in the second half made it 3-0, firmly putting the game out of reach.

Eisenhower (16-3) will play host Rochester Hills Stoney Creek on Friday at 7 p.m. for the district title.

“The district, in my opinion, is the toughest district. Every single team, honestly, I think are very good teams. Rochester is a very good team. They worked hard today,” Nekoogar said. “Stoney won the state last year, so everybody knows how good they are; and Adams won their division. It can be anybody’s game. It all depends on who shows up, who is going to get the lucky shot, and who is going to make the mistakes.”

Rochester finishes the year 9-7-3.

“I’m thrilled about this season. I’m thrilled about what we did. Not that getting to a district semifinal is the best thing in the world, but it hasn’t happened the last two years. So getting that under our belts is something to be proud of,” Coleman said. “Knowing that we’re just going to continue to get better is great in terms of hope for the future. Overall, the season was a little up and down, but we proved that we could hang with the best of them.”
