Marian’s regional semifinal game on Wednesday was much different than the Mustangs’ district Final on Friday against Birmingham Detroit Country Day.

Marian needed regulation, two overtimes and a 7-6 advantage in penalty kicks to knock off Country Day 1-0 in the District final. But in a regional semifinal at Farmington High School, the Mustangs needed just one half and less than a minute to mercy Allen Park 8-0.

Marian improved to 21-0 on the season and will face the winner of Dexter-Trenton on Friday in the Regional (6) championship game. If Trenton wins the game will be played at 3 p.m. If Dexter wins the game will kick off at 6 p.m.

Despite the loss, Allen Park Coach Kamry Miller was “proud” of her Jaguars.

“Very proud of this season and the way the girls played and competed,” Miller said. “We played hard, had fun and made a little history.”

Allen Park defeated Divine Child 2-1 in its District Final to claim the school’s first district championship. DC had defeated Allen Park 3-0 earlier in the season.

Allen Park also finished third in the competitive Downriver League.

But on Wednesday, the Jaguars ran into one of the best – if not the best – teams in the state in Marian. Grace Kinna’s goal less than a minute into the second half ended the game at 8-0.

The goals came fast and furious for the talented Mustangs in the first half.

Ellie DeConinck scored at 37:42 with an assist from Jansen Eichenlaub and then again at 33:19 with an assist from Claudia Schilling. And just like that it was 2-0.

Less than a minute later, Eichenlaub scored with an assist from DeConinck and it was 3-0.

At 28:22, Jenna Borellis scored to push the lead to 4-0.

Eichenlaub scored back-to-back goals with assists from DeConinck and Schilling to make it 6-0 with 6:08 left in the first half.

Olivia Zardus scored with 4:20 left in the half to make it 7-0.

Isabel Hayes recorded the shutout for the Mustangs.
