The Lakers' Chloe Barnthouse scored in overtime Thursday.

MILFORD — Chloe Barnthouse’s goal early in the second overtime session stood up as the difference for West Bloomfield on Thursday in a 3-2 district semifinal win over Walled Lake Central.

Under some duress in the final nine minutes of extra time after the go-ahead goal, the Lakers ultimately held on to earn their first trip to a district final since 1993 where they’ll face Walled Lake Northern on Friday.

On the winning tally, West Bloomfield’s Jasmine Hollins managed to slip past a Central defender, racing to the end line to deliver the ball across the mouth of the goal for Barnthouse to get a foot on in traffic, depositing it in the net.

“It was Jasmine Hollins coming down the line and slotting it right across,” Lakers coach Jason Clark said. “It was a big effort play. That’s how most of the goals were tonight and it’s kind of been our story in the playoffs this week – effort goals. They’re not necessarily the prettiest, but we’re getting the work done.”

Barnthouse now has four goals in two playoff games this week after scoring a pair on Tuesday in a 2-1 win over OAA White Division champ Clarkston, as well as a second-half goal against Central.

Clark credited the constant scoring threat from his forwards with preventing the Vikings from pushing its entire team into the offensive end down the stretch.

“We still wanted to keep some numbers up top because we knew they weren’t going to leave us alone, especially with Chloe’s speed up there and her impact on the game,” he said. “We knew they would still have to account for her and as long as we kept two forwards up top, we knew they couldn’t send everybody in on us.”

Dana Suchara had the Lakers’ other goal Thursday.

“We learned a lot in our league play and played a lot of close games this year,” Clark said. “We’ve been on both ends, winning and losing a lot of close games. But now it’s do or die.”
