ROCHESTER HILLS — The race for a title in the Oakland Activities Association’s Red Division could have ended on Thursday, but instead, with Stoney Creek’s 4-1 victory over Rochester Adams, multiple scenarios may still play out in determining a league champion.

Adams entered with an unblemished division record and could have locked up sole possession of first place with either a win or draw, but Stoney Creek was able to capitalize early and often to remain in the hunt itself.

“We’ve had opportunities all year and hadn’t always capitalized on them. Tonight they found the back of the net. Finishing was key tonight,” Cougars coach Bryan Mittelstadt said.

Stoney Creek opened the scoring 15 minutes into the game when senior Lindsey Schupbach found the netting with a long, rising shot just under the crossbar that couldn’t be corralled by the backpedaling keeper.

The Cougars continued to out-possess the Highlanders, eventually doubling their lead to 2-0 eight minutes later when senior Nicole Eichberger managed to play the ball to herself after evading the keeper and tapping it in just near the goal line.

Stoney Creek put the game well out of reach in the second half on a pair of goals by sophomore Meghan Solek which came less than three minutes apart.

Adams’ lone goal to break the shutout came with 14:08 to play with freshman Justice Tillotson finding the back of the net on a shot from the wing.

Stoney Creek senior goalkeeper Gina Cerny made a few key saves while an organized defensive back line in front of her kept any offensive zone pressure by Adams steered safely to the perimeter.

“We haven’t given up a lot of goals through the season. Defending is our strength,” Mittelstadt said, pleased with the overall performance of his team.

Stoney Creek and Adams could meet again in the district semifinals on June 1.

The loss was the first for the Highlanders (6-2-5) since March. Adams can still clinch at least a share of first place if it can tie or defeat Rochester in its final division game on Monday.

Stoney Creek (11-3-1, 2-1-1) has two remaining OAA Red games, including Troy on Friday and Troy Athens on May 24.
